Episode 72 – Things I’ve Learned This Week

The title of this week’s show says it all. These are bits of info I did not know at this time a week ago, but do now, thanks to the Inter-webs. Learning new things inspires me and makes me happy and maybe it will do the same for you. Listen in and find out about how we live in the past, the value in focusing on systems rather than goals, how not to fall victim to some common tourist scams, and some other random and fun things too. Also, don’t forget this week’s segment on physical health. Does exercising longer give you more benefits? Find out!
