Walk to La Pizzeria
Brought pizza back to Airbnb to eat on balcony.
I finished the book, Smarter, Better, Faster. Here are some of my favorite passages:
"Motivation is more like a skill, akin to reading or writing, that can be learned and honed."
"When people believe they are in control, they tend to work harder and push themselves more."
"Narrate your life, as you are living it, and you'll encode those experiences deeper in your brain."
"If you need to improve your focus and learn to avoid distractions, take a moment to visualize, with as much detail as possible, what you are about to do."

"Self-motivation becomes easier when we see our choices as affirmations of our deeper values and goals."

This blog is built on honesty.
