Make Your Bed: Little Things That Can Change Your Life...And Maybe the World by William H. McRavenListening Length: 1 hour and 53 minutes
If you want to change the world, start off by making your bed.
On May 17, 2014, Admiral William H. McRaven addressed the graduating class of the University of Texas at Austin on their Commencement day. Taking inspiration from the universitys slogan, What starts here changes the world, he shared the ten principles he learned during Navy Seal training that helped him overcome challenges not only in his training and long Naval career, but also throughout his life; and he explained how anyone can use these basic lessons to change themselves-and the world-for the better.
Admiral McRavens original speech went viral with over 10 million views. Building on the core tenets laid out in his speech, McRaven now recounts tales from his own life and from those of people he encountered during his military service who dealt with hardship and made tough decisions with determination, compassion, honor, and courage. Told with great humility and optimism, this timeless book provides simple wisdom, practical advice, and words of encouragement that will inspire readers to achieve more, even in lifes darkest moments.

Are you on the look out for fabulous bedroom ideas? Then you've come to the right place. Did you know that we spend around one third of our lives in bed? It's therefore all the more crucial that our bedroom should be as beautiful — and practical — as possible. Your bedroom was probably the first room you ever helped to decorate. Perhaps your parents let you pick out your favourite paint colour for the walls, or a duvet cover featuring your favourite cartoon character or Disney princess.
Combine large prints with small ones, florals with geometrics. Complementary bed linens pull the decor together. Your bedroom should express your personality not just design principles , so feel free to go a little off-center, as with the art here.
