October 2008's First Friday Wisdom Nibblets

Here's two really really well written posts from Leo at Zen Habits with some wise word to think about before the weekend starts...

* 6 Questions to Ask Yourself to Get the Most Out of Life

The article begins with a quote from Abraham Lincoln,
“And in the end, it’s not the years in your life that count. It’s the life in your years.”
, and after it gets us to think about what really matters, it finishes with a gentle reminder...
“We are always getting ready to live but never living.” - Ralph Waldo Emerson

* 7 Little Habits That Can Change Your Life, and How to Form Them

I genuinely think that once you fully understand and apply the habit #1 "Positive Thinking", you'll start to see your life differently. However, it's not to say that the other six Leo's recommended habits are any less life changing.

I have personally tested and approved of the #7 Daily Routine, #2 Exercise, and most recently, #4 Focus on one goal. Plus, I'm currently working on #5 Eliminate the non-essential, and #6 Kindness. For some weird reason the #3 Single-tasking isn't as appealing as the rest to me. :P

Hope everyone have a great weekend ahead of you!
