The “Last Week’s Awesome” series is a list of the best articles I’ve come across recently. Some are old (but still gold) while others are more recent. The topics are generally related to personal finance/investing, real estate, family/kids, happiness or just leaving the world better than we found it.
Coincidentally, all of the following focus on the ‘self’. Enjoy!
I have this post by Joe bookmarked – a reminder to myself to read it every now and again. Read it, and then choose to be lucky
Are all these lucky breaks random chances? Some of them may feel like random chances, but many of them are the result of small choices made over many years.

Now that you’ve gotten lucky, follow through. Persevere. Don’t effing give up – the good stuff is always hard. It applies to parenting, investing, your career, your spouse and anything else you can think of.
Remember…what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger. So a bit of grit is going to come in handy on the path to financial independence. I’m not saying that you should never, ever quit anything. …experiment and not worry too much about failure…being able to flex, adapt and pivot.
As usual, David doesn’t disappoint. Here he talks about we screw ourselves by getting involved in too many things – either because we can’t say ‘No‘ or because we have a fear of missing out.
Abundance is good when you’re coming from a place of scarcity. But if we don’t make a point of pruning away the excess, we end up with an overabundance of one thing and a scarcity of something else, often something much more vital: time, self-esteem, physical and mental health.
”I’m not what I think I am, I am not what you think I am, I am what I think you think I am”. Enough said. Watch the damn video.
