David has begun reading Dale Carnegie’s book, “How to Stop Worrying and Start Living”:
The book jacket lists 10 ways this book will help you:
- Gives you a number of practical, tested formulas for solving worry situations.
- Shows you how to eliminate 50 percent of your business worries immediately.
- Brings you seven ways to cultivate a mental attitude that will give you peace and happiness.
- Shows you how to lessen financial worries.
- Explains a law that will outlaw many of your worries.
- Tells you how to turn criticism to your advantage.
- Shows you how to avoid fatigue – and keep looking young.
- Explains four working habits that will help prevent fatigue and worry.
- Tells you how to add one hour a day to your waking life.
- Shows you how to avoid emotional upsets.
This book was first published in 1944 and millions of copies have been sold since then. Dale Carnegie died at age 66 in 1955. The cause of death was Hodgkin’s Lymphoma.

Life doesn’t have to be a drag or a chore. Find some way to have fun!
