BOOK OF THE WEEK
I first read this book in 1986 and have reviewed it a number of times over the years as well as just this past week.
It works, if you apply yourself to its teachings. However, where it speaks of wealth or money, I would suggest replacing those words with whatever you really want.
Money in my view, should be an enabler and not the end goal.
Think and Grow Rich
By Napoleon Hill
Think and Grow Rich has been called the “Granddaddy of All Motivational Literature.” It was the first book to boldly ask, “What makes a winner?”
Think and Grow Rich, published in 1937, draws on stories of Andrew Carnegie, Thomas Edison, Henry Ford, and other millionaires of his generation to illustrate his principles.
MOVIE OF THE WEEK
I thought it was an interesting film, worth watching. I do wish it had been in chronological order, since some of the flashbacks made the film a bit confusing.
Being The Ricardos (2021)
“A revealing glimpse of the couple’s complex romantic and professional relationship, the film takes audiences into the writers’ room, onto the soundstage and behind closed doors with Ball and Arnaz during one critical production week of their groundbreaking sitcom I Love Lucy.” (Source: Wikipedia)
MUSIC OF THE WEEK
The reason I selected this song is because I was briefly watching a New Year’s Eve show from Nashville, Tennessee. There was a comedian on the show talking about how scared people are and he went on to say something like, “In Nashville, the only thing these folks are afraid of, is running out of beer.”
Ballad of Davy Crockett
By Fess Parker
ART OF THE WEEK
Every year brings the loss of friends and family members; however, every year also brings forth new friends and new family members. Stay positive.
It is called Melancolie. And it is heartbreakingly beautiful.
The artwork created by Albert György (living in Switzerland, but born in Romania) can be found in Geneva in a small park on the promenade (Quai du Mont Blanc) along the shore of Lake Geneva.
EXTRAORDINARY PERSON OF THE WEEK
I did some research and apparently this story is true.
But, even if it weren’t true, it should be.
JOKE OF THE WEEK
Some people think it is fine for people to loose their livelihood because for various reasons they don’t think a Covid shot or shots are in their best interests.
Others think it is fine to prevent people from traveling or going into restaurants, gyms, entertainment venues, etc., unless fully vaccinated.
One can always find a reason to discriminate against any group. Perhaps, your group (aged, overweight, disabled, too many kids, etc.) may be the next group to be discriminated against and who will stand up for you?
This could help one get along better with people in 2022.
It is important to stay current with technology.
