Friday Favorites: The ONE Thing

I just finished listening to The One Thing by Gary W. Keller and Jay Papasan, and I enjoyed it so much I’ve decided to make it my Friday Favorite!

The book inspired me to create a strong plan of action, focusing on my ultimate goal and working backwards to what I should be doing now.

As a result, I’ve been looking for different information on migraine causes.
