Ten Thinking Sins – Leo over at ZenHabits does a great job pointing out the various types of negative thinking.
Leadership Laugh – My friend David Zinger, who I blogged about here, has a funny new blog where he provides leadership “advice.” I’ve read a lot of self-help/business books so I got a laugh reading some of his tips.
Four Hour Workweek Blog – I’ve talked about Tim’s book. Here’s his blog. Tim doesn’t write that often, but his posts are usually good when he does. I think this is the kind of blog you subscribe more to understand the person than his subject, as Tim is a very interesting guy.

Goals! – It seems like ages ago, but it’s only been a year since I released Goals! An Interactive Guide, my experiment mixing games with learning about goal setting. In any case, this is the 9 part series on goal-setting that was covered in the program, in blog form.

Body Sculpting Bible for Men – Great book if your interested in fitness. It covers the basics as well as some information you probably wont find in the copy of Men’s Fitness laying around at the gym. Although I haven’t read it, I’m sure the same applies to the alternative book, Body Sculpting Bible for Women.
It’s been awhile since I read the book, but some interesting points I remember getting:
- You can exercise too much. More than an 1-2 hours of sustained exercise can be less effective than shorter workouts.
- One gram of protein per pound of lean bodyweight is a good rule to use when trying to increase your muscle.
- Focus on your muscles movement during a rep. The book goes into more depth with mental techniques that help with getting the most of your workout.
