DonDoes30.com - Dale Carnegie

"You can make more friends in two months by becoming interested in other people than you can in two years by trying to get other people interested in you."
― Dale Carnegie

"Holy shit, Don! Another book from the 1930s?" You're damn right. "How to Win Friends and Influence People" by Dale Carnegie was first published in 1936, which to some people might mean the content is dated; however, just like "Think and Grow Rich", the fundamentals of human interaction are timeless. The reason this book has been in print for over seventy years is because it works. Sure the book contains some dated language and cultural references, but for the most part this is not an issue. It’s still very easy to visualize every example of human interaction ... Continue Reading

Oh, Mother Nature; she sure is a fickle bitch. Earthquakes, hurricanes, tornadoes, flash floods, volcanic eruptions and tsunamis are all her little ways of saying, "Fuck you!" Possibly for all those times we completed destroy a forest to build that city's 9th Wal-Mart. But now ... Continue Reading

DonDoes30.com - Napoleon Hill

"If you can't do great things, do small things in a great way."
― Napoleon Hill

"Think and Grow Rich" by Napoleon Hill — the book I found during my day at the library — was first published in 1937 and as I mentioned before, is still considered to be one of the best books for business and personal success ever written. The book is the culmination of two decades of research, in which Napoleon Hill studied some of the world’s most successful people and started to notice that all those people ... Continue Reading

"Woah! we're half way there / Woah! livin' on a prayer / Take my hand and we'll make it, I swear!"
— Livin' on a Prayer, Bon Jovi

From day one, I knew this challenge was going to be a challenge. The smartphone has been put away, freeing up a lot of much needed time to spend with my wife and daughter; the television now just another fixture as useless as a paperweight, giving the chance to read books again; and the internet only used for certain activities (see below), providing a whole ...
