The end of the year is often a good time to reflect on and reiterate what’s important. I thought I would cap off 2018 by highlighting the top eight Friday Forwards from this past year along with a quick summary of each. In my own review of these notes, I was reminded of just how relevant these topics and messages are as we head into 2019.

With Gratitude (March 8th)
The next time you stay in a hotel, this small act of gratitude has the power to change someone’s life in ways you could not imagine. 

Early Riser (July 28th) 
How three near-death experiences led Hal Elrod to discover a powerful morning routine that has changed his life and the lives of over 500,000 members of his “miracle morning” community (me included).

Respectful Disagreement (Sept 13th)  
The best leaders triangulate their view with believable people who are willing to disagree and challenge their closely-held assumptions and beliefs.

Prism & Laser (February 1st)
Understanding the fundamental difference between a prism and a laser can predict success in life and business.

Raising Values (April 5th)
The key lesson from a study of non-Jews who risked their lives to save Jews during the Holocaust and how it led back to how they were parented.

Gaining Perspective ( May 3rd)
How a trip to Puerto Rico for hurricane relief brought my family out of its comfort zone, taught us many lifelong lessons and demonstrated the value of community.
