Top 5 Top 5 Lists of 2014! – The GKN Weekly Update 1/6/14

Hello and Happy Bird Day, Peculiar People Day, and of course Happy New Year! I hope everyone had a safe & fun New Year celebration.


Like everyone else, I’m all geeked up to start 2015 right with lofty goals and good habits. I would like to take a moment to look back at 2014 before we mush on.

Without getting into too much detail, 2014 was fantastic for me. It was my best year ever professionally and I made strides on many levels personally. I’m still working on the weight loss thing, but who isn’t?

Anyway, I examined my 2014 blog entries and yet again came up with a Top Five Top Five List. Usually there is a list of top five books I read, but unfortunately the only books I read last year were audio book manuscripts and “Cloud Atlas” so I skipped that one. However, I saw a a lot of great films so this year the compilation is pretty movie-centric. I added an IMDB link to some of them so you can check out the more obscure ones. Enjoy!

Top 5 Tips of the Week

  1. If you give with no expectations, good things will happen.

  2. Remember that the only person responsible for your success is you.

  3. The cliche is “adapt or die”. I say, adapt or go blind!

  4. Think like a business, have a plan, and write it down!

  5. If your life is out of whack, un-whack it!
