The biggest hurdle you’re going to face is your mindset.
Your mindset will cause you to stumble and fall. It’ll tell you that you’re wrong or made the worst decision ever.

All cool things. All things that improved our lives. Or so we think.
Is it really better to have 200 channels to channel surf through? Can you really find something on Netflix to watch with all of the choices available? What about recording all of the television shows you want to watch (but never get the chance to)? Read more...
