49 - Humor

I’ve been cleansing things that matter from things that don’t matter in my life. Just like cleaning a house , refreshing the Internet browser or organizing computer files in an external drive, there’s something liberating about focusing (and keeping close to you) all of real importance and value.  I’ve found that there are 6 areas I’m particularly fond about:

1 – Humor.

2 – Consciousness.

3 – Social Interactions.

4 – Optimization.

5 – Peace.

6 – Warrior.

All of these subjects are covered in Maximizing Performance. Over the next weeks I’ll focus on those specific categories and summarize it in some thought-provoking, mind bogging, über inspiring quotes. Let’s get down to it!
