Here’s the latest in my yearly series of thoughts that can make you a better human next year.
This quick post contains a treasure trove of the top free content that I’ve shared in 2019, all neatly packed into those lists that we all love at this time of the year.
Something for everyone in here, stuff for learning teams, personal development geeks and my fellow friends trying to calm the monkey mind.
Basically some good stuff so we can all be better humans.
Enjoy, share, let me know your thoughts and don’t forget to subscribe to my newsletter for a collection of stuff like this every week.
