5 Things to Do Before the End of the Year

As the year draws to a close, there’s always a mix of joy and sadness. Hope and doubt. Champagne and hangovers.

Turning the page to a new year is a big milestone, and here at PTM we want to help you charge into it with a fresh perspective. Here are five thought-provoking resources to get those juices flowing. Assuming, of course, you haven’t had one too many mimosas.

Greg Lukianoff & Jonathan Haidt, “The Coddling of the American Mind. Yes, there’s a book by the same title, but this is the original article from The Atlantic that inspired the book. It’s a frank look at what is happening on college campuses today, and why it poses such a danger to our society.

Jordan Peterson, Ben Shapiro & Dave Ruben: “Religion, Trans Activism, and Censorship. If you really have some time to kill over the holidays, here’s a two-hour YouTube video covering religion, free speech and all sorts of stuff from three men deep in the weeds on culture and society. The episode starts out discussing “why some people don’t seem to like [conservatives]” and goes from there.

Jordan Peterson: “The Death and Resurrection of Christ: A Commentary in Five Parts. If you’re hungry for more Jordan Peterson, this is a video of his talk about the psychological significance of Christ. Not your typical Christmas tale (unless you are a social psychologist) but at 332,000 views, there’s something here.

Jason Gay: “And Now, The Most Unmemorable Moments of 2018. Among the many important stories reported by the Wall Street Journal this year, none is perhaps so, well, UN-important than this piece by the Journal’s sports columnist. If you’re tired of the constant shock and awe filling the headlines, however, tape this on your wall.

Michael Hyatt: Your Best Year Ever. It’s impossible to start the new year without at least thinking of new year’s resolutions, even if you ditch them. But if you are as serious about chasing down your goals as a cheetah chasing a gazelle in Kenya’s Maasai Mara (if that reference seems random, sorry, we’re currently binging Big Cat Diary), Michael Hyatt has a slew of resources to help you do it. His books, events and online courses are the perfect framework to define goals and action plans.

Thanks in large part to Michael Hyatt’s planning resources, we have some really exciting plans in the works for PTM for next year. We’d love to work with you to make them happen! Chip in to support our work, or shoot me a note and we can get together to show you what’s in store.

Wishing you all of the best over the holidays and in the year ahead!
