Hi friends, here is your weekly dose of “Simply Good Life,” a list of things that will help you to grow personally and professionally. Enjoy!

Fall Asleep Faster

Here’s another podcast with a ton of sleep tricks. I really like the tip about how to fall asleep quickly:

Instead of counting sheep to make yourself fall asleep, try remembering what you did yesterday or some other random day in the past.

Dr. Martone has tried this method and experienced good results. It looks like dreams help your body categorize memories, and by trying to remember the past, you can help speed up the start time to begin dreaming.

Best Scrambled Eggs

In this four-minute-video Gordon Ramsay, one of the world’s most famous chefs, invites you to learn his trick with creating the famous Gordon Ramsay’s Scrambled Eggs.

Start More Interesting Conversations

Here are 8 questions that will help to build a deep connection with anyone. Instead of asking people “What do you do?” rather ask:

What excites you right now? or

Is there a charitable cause you support?

Great conversation starters that go much deeper than the usual “What do you do” question.

Quote I Love — Dare to Fail

Dream big and dare to fail.” — Norman Vaughan

It’s important to understand that experimenting in life only works if you accept that failing is ok. Whenever you try out new things also think about the most negative outcome and ask yourself if you could accept it. Dare to fail!

Have a great weekend,

Adam
