Godfrey-Smith starts out by providing insight into how he developed a passion for studying cephalopods. He highlighted this interest with a discussion of the evolutionary path. It doesn’t take him long to state what he wants to accomplish in this book:
Affiliate links included in this post. We’re on the heels of winter and my desire to stay in, curled up in front of the fireplace working on my fiber crafts is kicking in. I’ve spent the past few days satisfying this crafting craving by diving into the Handmade with Love Super Bundle. (affiliate link) This is…

Somedays it’s just too hard to get off the couch, especially when there is that one item on the to do list that has to be done.
You know the one.
It’s that to do list item that stares at you, and the longer you put it off the more daunting it seems to be.
This is also the same to do list item that, once complete, will feel like a huge weight off your shoulders and you’ll be motivated to do even more.
This is your frog, and it’s what Eat That Frog! by Brian Tracy is about.
In the introduction Tracy mentions a quote by Mark Twain that basically says if the first thing you do in the morning is eat a live frog then there is nothing worse you could do for the rest of the day.
In other words, if you complete that daunting task on your to do list right away, it will help you become more productive and more motivated to complete your to do list.
Trying to get my life, my business, my kids schedules, my hobbies, and my outside obligations organized while working around a military schedule isn’t easy. I’ve tried everything from basic to do lists to bullet journals. Some things work better than others, yet I still find myself keeping things in my head more than I probably should.
I’ve used day planners in the past, however the majority of the sections are left blank and they never seem to keep my attention. I just need something to keep me coming back, but I’ve never known what that something was, until now.
Today I’m reviewing the Always Believe in Yourself planner, and I’m glad I agreed to this one. It’s simple, yet useful and is keeping my interest! It’s a regular day planner, but it’s more than that. Let me give you a little more information to clarify what I’m saying and what I really like about this planner.
If you’re a blogger, there’s a good chance someone has recommended ProBlogger to you. I know I had many people recommend it to me and I’m glad they did. It’s a great book that I continually come back to everytime I want some fresh ideas or inspiration on what to do next to boost my blog.
I was recently asked to check out Me, Myself, & I ~ 28 Days of Creative Self-Love by Cheryl Bridges for a project about reminding ourselves to love ourselves. I’m always up for something that can better myself especially with my focus on the positive lifestyle. I wasn’t disappointed with this book.
Cheryl takes you on a month long journey through self exploration and really dissects different attributes of self-love providing a detailed understanding of what it takes to love ourselves and how to challenge the obstacles that are standing in our way of self-love.

The Extraordinary Art of Couponing covers everything you need to know in order to save money on your groceries and more. There were a lot of myths I had that Nicole addressed and I learned a lot of things I didn’t even know. At this point, this woman who KNEW couponing was not right for her (that’s me) now knows that it’s not as hard or time consuming as she once thought it was.
I find it weird that I’m excited to get out there and start couponing again, but now I’m thinking of a vacation I could save up for, the help on getting my house or student loans paid off, or even an extra class for the kids!
