I have to say that the post about working out is absolutely true, as is your comment. I'm not in shape by any means, but when I see someone who is really overweight, I'm always impressed that they've chosen to be active. It's not easy.

Everything Compounds is a great, great lesson, in every area of life. Good reminder.

I absolutely loved The Ways in Which We Limit Ourselves article. I really needed to hear some of that today. Much. Thanks, Dan.

Thanks to both of you for the feedback. Agreed on those articles too. 344 Pounds has a great knack for boiling down the truth, and I thought he nailed it in that post about working out.

And Melissa, really happy to hear you got extra value out of the articles this week. Thanks as always for reading.
