Needles from the Haystack #8 – 6/2018

Needles from the Haystack

The sun is starting to show up over here on the regular in Germany.

But that’s not the only bright thing there is: The TopResources – Newsletter for June is there.

This month I have for you…

…very practical tips on improving self-control
…smart and brief advice on building rapport with people easily
…why reading the news can hurt you more than it helps you
…some exercises to un-hunch yourself
…a collection of great questions that might allow you to move forward substantially

If you think I did a good job in selecting the content, why don’t you write it on a piece of paper, bottle it up and release it into a body of water near you? Or, you know, just share the link with someone that might enjoy it.

I’d love to send more people useful stuff!
