In our most popular article from 2015, Jeff provides an inspiring retrospective of a year of rising early. He outlines how he managed to do it every day, the problems he faced, how it changed his life, the other improvements he saw in his life, and recommendations for our readers. My favorite line from his article:
I feel every person should spend at least 15 minutes a day focusing on their own personal development. It’s a no brainer! Why would you ever want to sleepwalk through life and ignore yourself? If we all spent time each day learning and practicing how to become a better, more integrated and whole human being, the world would be a better place.
But that’s thinking too big, just focus on yourself. Give yourself that time in the morning and start living on purpose!
Mark Manson inspired a lot of PRSUIT readers this y ear with this relationship piece that encouraged our readers to ponder…why would you ever want to be with someone who is not excited to be with you? He encouraged our readers to break free from being too analytical with relationships and each other’s behavior, and instead start behaving by adhering to the Law of “Fuck Yes or No.” Here it is:
The Law of “Fuck Yes or No” states that when you want to get involved with someone new, in whatever capacity, they must inspire you to say “Fuck Yes” in order for you to proceed with them.
The Law of “Fuck Yes or No” also states that when you want to get involved with someone new, in whatever capacity, THEY must respond with a “Fuck Yes” in order for you to proceed with them.
The guys from Charisma on Command put an end to awkward silences in our most popular social skills piece from 2015.They explained, from their experience, that the key here is that you are anticipating too far ahead. You need to trust yourself to adapt on the fly. You need to remove the filter and play a game called “reminds me of…” to keep all parties interested and the conversation going. Here is my favorite quote from their piece:
Use “reminds me of” in conjunction with the fun and values modes of conversation to rekindle any conversation and move it in a direction that will keep people captivated. It’s also a fantastic tool for connecting with someone with whom you may not have much in common because it allows you to trade stories based on whatever is happening around you.
Mark is back on our list again with this inspiring article that urged our readers to think and act like a kid again. He reminds us of how easy it was to find a passion when you were a child… you just did whatever it was that interested you. You never thought to yourself, “What are the relative merits of learning baseball versus football?” You just ran around the playground and played baseball and football. My favorite part of Mark’s article is:
The problem is the, “Oh, well that’s just not a realistic option,” or “Mom and Dad would kill me if I tried to do that, they say I should be a doctor” or “That’s crazy, you can’t buy a BMW with the money you make doing that.”
The problem isn’t passion. It’s never passion.
Rahim’s account of leaving his well paying private equity job to start his dream startup was a brutally honest one but left our readers inspired nonetheless. His portrayal of dark days, pressure and learning all the skills necessary to be successful on his own gave our readers a realistic picture of what the startup life is really all about – its not all glitz and glam. Rahim also gave our readers some important takeaways and suggestions for being successful on your own. My favorite part of Rahim’s piece is:
Big goals will keep you hungry, working hard, and pushing you forward. While nobody knows what the future holds, always remember to never be satisfied with the status quo.
