Daily reminder

I have read a few of Ryan's books and each of them started to make a difference in my life, absolutely loved it, but over time we tend to forget the most basic things we have learnt. This podcast is perfect for reminding me about every little thing that I should be focusing on rather than worthless things we usually stress about. Love it!
