Here are the highlights:

  • Luck and risk are siblings: they both play a critical role in our life’s outcome, and they both are guided by things other than our own efforts.
  • When we experience personal, professional or financial success, we have to master the skill of knowing when enough is enough, and learning how to be content without becoming complacent.
  • “People are frugal in guarding their personal property,” Jared quotes, “but as soon as it comes to squandering their time, they’re the most wasteful with the one thing they have a right to be stingy with.” He talks about how the year 2020 gave us the opportunity to rebuild our schedules around what matters most.
  • Developing the daily discipline of gratitude is a great way to create more joy in your life.
  • 2020 may not have been joyful for most of us, but we will still find joy when we reflect on the time we’ve spent with our loved ones and how much we’ve grown.
