The title should be at least 4 characters long. How to Be Everything. There’s nothing new here. With the countless distractions that come from every corner of a modern life, it’s amazing that were ever able to accomplish anything. Overall, this was a decent book that might help you realize that the best way to achieve the things you want in life is babsuta get the right things OUT les your life instead of constantly adding more.

Secondly, the narrator has a friendly, encouraging t Although it is ridiculous on the face of it to take advice on how to simplify your life from a man who has fathered six children, this audiobook resonated with me right now and I’ve already implemented at least one thing from it this week that has been helpful.
I read it in less than a week, and I loved every sentence of it. You can NOT add any other projects to that list until you’ve completed all three.
