Musings from the CU Suite

Your NAFCU Weekend Reading Pile

Compiled by Anthony Demangone, Powered by NAFCU

When are you at your best? That’s sort of a rhetorical question. But sort of not.

Take a productive day. A day when you crushed it. And then dissect it. Why were you productive? What did eat? Did you exercise? Did you drink coffee? How much? You get the idea.

Look for trends. If you find something that seems to work, repeat it.

On the flip side? When are you at your worst? A day you’d likely want to forget! What happened? Same drill. Look for patterns. See something that leads to bad days? Try to eliminate it.

Here’s to having more good than bad! And with that, on to this week’s reading pile.
