    What matters most to you? Should you focus on earning a living, pursuing your passions, or devoting yourself to the causes that inspire you? The surprising truth is that you don’t have to choose—and that you’ll find more success if you don’t. That’s the breakthrough message of the TOMS One for One movement. You don’t have to be rich to give back and you don’t have to retire to spend every day doing what you love. You can find profit, passion, and meaning all at once—right now.

    Where does Start Something That Matters rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I got through it pretty quick because it kept my interest. I put it on 2x speed and that was a perfect tempo.


    What does Blake Mycoskie bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He made it personal and that made all the difference. He came across as real and unpretentious. He makes the listener feel that they can do it too, his ego is in check.


    What did you learn from Start Something That Matters that you would use in your daily life?

    You must be okay with failing a bunch of times and keep going.


    Any additional comments?

    I don't know how political he really is, but, I like how he didn't make his book political. All realms of politics seem to be congested with people that are holier than thou. I have a feeling he's more interested in looking for good in people and he finds it much more often than most.

    To most of us, learning something 'the hard way' implies wasted time and effort. Good teaching, we believe, should be creatively tailored to the different learning styles of students and should use strategies that make learning easier. Make It Stick turns fashionable ideas like these on their head and will appeal to all those interested in the challenge of lifelong learning and self-improvement.

    So many helpful points! I now know I can pass my certification test. We should be taught HOW to study in school as children and teenagers. I was studying all wrong & without confidence. No matter what age we can keep our brains going by intentional recall. A little long & repetitive, could have been condensed. But it was a big eye opener for me.
