Started listening to Ready for Anything by David Allen + Quotes!

A personal friend of mine really liked David Allen's other audiobook called Getting Things Done so I figure this audiobook (Ready for Anything: 52 Productivity Principles for Work and Life) will have some sound (no pun intended) advice and quick-and-easy tips as well.

Just around 30 minutes into it already and I've already taken quite a few notes. It's definitely a practical book, and sometimes I find that exceedingly refreshing when undertaking the study of personal improvement. I'm sure you can relate if you have been a student of this field for even a few months.

Here is a nice quote I heard that was new to me: "What it lies in our power to do, it lies in our power not to do." That is an Aristotle quote, but it certainly sounds like Jim Rohn!

I will be posting more on this audiobook in the days to come. I don't think it will take but 2-3 days to listen to it in it's entirety.

Additional random quote gems:

"Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work." Thomas A. Edison

"Millions long for immortality who do not know what to do with themselves on a rainy Sunday afternoon." Susan Ertz
