8 Best/most interesting articles

(1) oh Man oh Man...I'm not crazy! (AND neither are most women...)

(2) Effort is what makes life worth it, when did it go out of style? (or I guess how come it never was in style???)

Quote that sums it up: "Expending effort becomes stigmatized—it’s public proof that you can’t cut it on your natural gifts."

(4) On performing at your personal best...and the importance of a coach/mentor to help along the way:

(5) Deliberate Practice/The making of an expert. I've been extremely intrigued by the body of research done by Anders Ericsson. (I highly recommend his main book that publishes a better context and supporting research of expert performance:  The Cambridge Handbook of Expertise and Expert Performance)

(6) Comprehensive Soldier Fitness + Authentic Happiness: This is the basis of my toughness plan:
Mental Strength of Life-Army Comprehensive Soldier Fitness


(8)The main reason I am obsessed with Leonardo Da Vinci. His collection of human anatomy drawings are incredibly intricate and gorgeous. Although I think I read somewhere that his anatomical drawings were part of his process in creating accurate depictions of human essence in his paintings, I see these drawings as art itself and interpret them as realizing that art sits within each of us. In essence, we are art personified. IF I wasn't trying to control my hypomanic spending, I'd totally invest in a book of his drawings. (Maybe for my birthday...)
