[book read] Win Friends influence people

This is a mind blowing book for me!

In order to get the most out of this book:

  • Develop a deep, driving desire to master the principles of human relations
  • Read each chapter twice before going on to the next one
  • Stop frequently to ask self how you can apply each suggestion
  • Underscore each important idea
  • Review this book each month :)
  • Apply these principles at every opportunity!
  • make a lovely game out of the learning
  • Check up each week on the progress you are making. Ask yourself what mistakes you have made, what improvement, what lessons you have learned for the future
  • Keep notes
