The Friday Five - June 23, 2017


Five things to take into your weekend....

1.  Quote I'm Mulling Over - “There is a set of advantages that have to do with material resources, and there is a set that have to do with the absence of material resources- and the reason underdogs win as often as they do is that the latter is sometimes every bit the equal of the former.” 
Malcolm Gladwell, David and Goliath: Underdogs, Misfits, and the Art of Battling Giants

2.  Book I am reading - David and Goliath: Underdogs, Misfits, and the Art of Battling Giants by Malcolm Gladwell. This is the fourth book by Malcolm that I have read.  Unfortunately, for now, it is the last.  He has no more to read. Like the others, Malcolm reads his own books ( I listen to books ).  And, he reads them like the word art they are. In this book, he reveals the secrets behind why the Davids' beat the Goliaths'. The best part of the secret is that it no secret at all. You may actually have it...

3.  Song of the Week - God of the Impossible by Everfound. This song was used, very well I might add, as the sound track for a David versus Goliath scene.  Here is where it is paired with video.

4.  Video of the Week -  "David & Goliath" this video depicts the story with a pretty good accuracy. To really understand the story you need to know the details which are revealed in Malcolm's book. David had a greater advantage you might realize.

5.  Health & Fitness Tip of the Week - get your nutrition! Athletic Greens makes it simple. I start each day with a water and Athletic Greens. It will help your David beat your Goliath everyday.

Have a great weekend!!

And, please share!
