Pretty Darn Funny & The Perils of Getting in Shape ~ week 5 and a giveaway! (of course)

For some of us it is an eternal battle to motivate ourselves to get to the gym!  (That would be me.)  We have the best of intentions, but life (or books) take precedence.

This week the Pretty Darn Funny troop take on the evil gym owner.  I love how each week they take common situations and add a little embellishment that makes for laughs and giggles.  I was so impressed, I ate a few cookies while watching the clip.  Funny how watching someone else work out makes you want to snack...weird!  I should take their example and get on my treadmill, with a book propped up to read!


This week Deseret Book is giving away a book!  Use the rafflecopter to enter.  The contest will end on September 23rd (the day after my birthday) and is for US/Canada addresses.

What if the smartest people in the world understand something that the rest of us don’t? (They do.) What if they know that in order to achieve success, they will sometimes have to do things that others may initially perceive as stupid? The fact of the matter is that the smartest people in the world don’t run from stupid, they lean into it (in a smart way).

In The Power of Starting Something Stupid, Richie Norton redefines stupid as we know it, demonstrating that life-changing ideas are often tragically mislabeled “stupid.” What if the key to success, creativity, and fulfillment in your life lies in the potential of those “stupid” ideas? This deeply inspiring book will teach you

-How to crush fear, make dreams happen, and live without regret.

-How to overcome obstacles such as lack of time, lack of education, or lack of money.

-The 5 actions of the New Smart to achieve authentic success. No more excuses. 

Learn how to start something stupid—the smartest thing you can do.

Drawing on years of research, including hundreds of face-to-face interviews and some of the world’s greatest success stories past and present, Richie shows you how stupid is the New Smart—the common denominator for success, creativity, and innovation in business and life.
