I like this book, one of the first exercises has you fill out a dashboard where you rank in quarters how well you are doing in work, play, love and health. Anything too low is a red light. I only rated work and play at 25% each because Iím just studying now but I noticed that even though Iím not really working Iím not really playing very well either....I think I need to increase both in the short term, study more but schedule time where I can be free and not feel guilty. Right now I feel like I spend too much time doing nothing, checking pc and Facebook etc....itís not really play and itís taking away from time I could be doing something more fun.

Still reading Les Miserables, it's a long book. Also reading one of my books I own, The Bipolar Disorder Survival Guide and I am picking up Madness: A Bipolar Life from the library today. Have been into memoirs lately

This is an incredible book, they also talk about kind mapping which is like a really innovative type of brain storm. And they discuss problems such as gravity and anchor problems, you canít fight gravity but you can reframe an anchor problem. I think a lot of how this book works is like cognitive restructuring but they call it reframing.

Is "kind mapping" a typo of mind mapping?? I've heard of mind mapping before, but not kind mapping... If it's not a typo, how does it differ?

Yeah, i found a lot of philosophy and literature blogs, it's interesting to get an academics view on Homer. Footnotes to Plato is a pretty good one, i think Newt would like him. I believe he's a professor, reviews a lot of books and posts philosophy stuff.

I wish i could get somewhere with it though. Somehow get paid for all the hard work i put into mine. Like with a Patreon. :/

Yeah yours is so in depth....some people do add a patreon or a donation button....Iím not entirely sure which plans that works with for Wordpress though. If you ever publish your book though a blog following can help with that.
