An A La Carte of links to things I came across in the last week that I found interesting.
These Gmail tips are amazing for anyone using the service. I particularly find the first trick the most useful for organizing my emails and keeping tabs on who is sharing my email address with who. I'm always looking for productivity hacks and these are some good ones.
This is an article from the Tony Robbins team. I'm not a huge follower of Tony Robbins but I do think he speaks a lot of truth and this article has some great truth in it for folks looking for a breakthrough in changing their lives.
The 1964 Stop Motion Version Of Rudolph, the Red-Nosed Reindeer Most Of Us Probably Watched As Kids
Try to watch it for free somewhere on TV, I dare you. My wife and I had the grandkids one evening and seen where it was going to be coming on CBS so we got the kids excited about watching it, but we get our TV service through YouTube TV. CBS always works great there, it's one of the reasons I use that streaming service but when Rudolph came on it said "This Program Isn't Available On Streaming" What the!!!??? Grandkids are excited to watch it so I start searching everywhere to watch it and after wasting an hour I finally bought it on Amazon for about $10. By the way they enjoyed it just like we did when we were kids.
Normally I would link to a specific article but in this case I will just link to an entire blog that gets short daily posts that will keep your wheels turning. Seth Godin is such a popular blogger and author that if you simply type his first name into a Google search it links to him.
If you are looking for some great homesteading information packaged up in a beautiful way that comes straight to your email inbox then you should sign up for this free magazine from Anna over at House and Homestead. Anna is someone I will probably have on the podcast soon as she is inspirational, informative and just seems like a great person.
The Incredible Ibex Defies Gravity And Climbs A Dam
It just blows my mind how something without thumbs can climb something this steep without hardly any effort. By the way have you seen the movie (documentary) "Free Solo" about Alex Honnold as he prepares to climb El Capitan in Yosemite without using a rope. He has thumbs and still amazes me and quite frankly scares the crap out of me. I recommend the the version on Disney+ due to bad language but you can also get it on Amazon Prime.
Rogue Food Conference
I have mentioned this before but as the day approaches I feel like it needs to be highlighted again. Circle January 25th 2020 on your calendar and grab your seat at the Marriott Cincinnati Airport for what promises to be a great conference. My Friend John Moody and Joel Salatin are putting on this important event which will focus on the problem of government regulations seemingly against small farmers and homesteaders and solutions to these problems with a great lineup of speakers. https://roguefoodconference.com/

Tools of Titans: The Tactics, Routines, and Habits of Billionaires, Icons, and World-Class Performers by Tim Ferriss
I'm just finishing up this book and I'm recommending it with a little hesitation. Not because it isn't loaded with some great information and great stories from interviews with amazing people but because I'm not in complete agreement with Tim Ferris on a few things. I think the first third of this book is almost useless but the rest of the book is amazing! So many great nuggets in this book, I've never highlighted so many things in one book before.
