Read A Book

So. Y’all remember that one of my goals for this 2018 was to read more and do social media less, right? Well two of the books on my list to read are here! The School of Greatness by Lewis Howes and Tribe of Mentors by Tim Ferriss. I chose these two because I listen to their podcasts and their whole thing is about getting you to be the best you that you can be. I need more of that in my life. I have a tribe and we push each other to be better but some outside help can’t hurt.

Oh yeah, I know I’ve said this a bunch but find.your.tribe! Whether online or in person. Having a group of people that have your back is immeasurable. I mean you push them, they push you. When you’re down they can encourage you and vice versa. You need people in your life that will tell you the truth even if it hurts your little feelings.

Okay so back to my reading list. These books were supposed to be the first books of the year but Fire and Fury by Michael Wolff was delivered first so I dove into that. I can’t wait to dive into these chapters and discover a better version of myself.

Since the beginning of the year I have been slowly weaning back on my social media consumption. I just feel like I waste so much time just scrolling through my feeds replying, liking, posting and reposting stuff. That time could be better spent working on myself. I hav a few projects that I want to start and get going this year and wasting time is not one of them. Mind you, all the time I spend on social media is not a waste. I do use it to learn and research and stuff but I also use it as a procrastination tool when I should be doing more productive things. So I won’t be having a total social media blackout but definitely a cutback of sorts. Since I’ve cut down I have been more productive. I’ve already started working on my new clothing line, Icons & Dons (iconsanddons.com). I’ll be specializing in fine premium men’s accoutrements. Accoutrements? yeah, just a fancy french word for accessories. Did I tell y’all I’m learning and studying french? No? Well, I’m learning and studying french.

That’s it. Back to my books. Bye

  1. I used to read actual books way more before social media platforms took up every minute of every day! I get exactly what you’re saying. Also am realizing more and more it’s important to have a tribe to help motivate and uplift in the digital world we live in. Great post!

    1. Hey Olena,
      Thanks for reading my stuff!
      Social media is such an addiction! I used to use my kindle but it was the tablet and I would find myself creeping over to facebook all the time! lol I am getting back into actual books even though they take up more space, to avoid getting on social media when I don’t need to be. Having a tribe is so important to me. We talk each other down, cheer each other up and encourage us to be better than ever! You gotta find one.
