If there’s one thing I don’t like, it’s driving around town with my Dad when he visits. According to him, I brake too hard, sit too long at stop signs and drive (his words) like a grandma. Well excuse me for trying to be a safe driver!
Can you relate to this? There’s a term for people like this who have made it their mission to call things out as they see them.

How are you supposed to get back on track after an accident wipes out your emergency fund, increases your insurance, and leaves you holding what will likely be a substantial bill?
Whether it’s the local pharmacy, ordered in bulk, or through the mail, the fact is you have a lot of options for where to get your razors these days. The answer to your shaving prayers however, may just have been hidden in plain sight all along.
It is a remarkably brief period of time between graduation and mid-life crisis. Your first duty is to get a job, then another job, then the one you will have for the next phase of your life. Along the way, you collect a family, one health scare, and some manageable debt.
The first grandkids and the first grey hairs show up suspiciously close together, along with the first sign that the aforementioned debt is not quite as manageable as you thought.
That is when you start coming to grips with a few hard realities: You’re forty something. Your knees hurt for no good reason. Print is starting to get smaller. You have advanced about as far in your career as you are likely to get. Your marriage doesn’t seem to be getting better or worse.
Is happiness the key to life?
For many, it is. But it’s so easy to get caught up worrying about our own happiness.
We can actually turn happiness into an idol that we worship, without even realizing it.
I’m not going to go into the religious implications of that, but I’m sure you would agree that idols aren’t the healthiest things to form. And you’re right. Regardless of your religious or spiritual beliefs, happiness makes a terrible idol.
There is a way to achieve happiness without idolizing it, and it’s actually easier than you may think.

“A university is just a group of buildings gathered around a library.” – Shelby Foote
Jim Rohn says “most large, exquisite homes have a library. Does that tell you something?”
There’s a reason these homes have libraries. The books in that library are one of the reasons they are where they are today. Of course, you don’t need an expensive house to have a library. A bookshelf in your bedroom or an empty closet works just fine.
If you’re short on space, go through your books and get rid of the junk first. Make room.
Jim Rohn gives guidelines in his books and seminars for what he believes should be in a basic home library.
Here’s Rohn’s advice, plus more on starting your home library.
