Book Review - How Full Is Your Bucket?

This is a co-write by Tom Rath and Donald O. Clifton.

The basic premise is simple. Each person has a bucket and a dipper. To be happy, your bucket should be full. Filling a bucket involves pouring in from the dipper (getting positive reinforcement and giving it, too). Emptying a bucket involves scooping out with the dipper (getting or giving negative comments/reinforcement).

Really quite simple. But, perhaps harder to implement and live by.

This was a very quick read but the idea has stuck with me. While I know it's healthier (both mentally and physically) to be positive and surround yourself with positive people, it's quite easy for me to fall into being negative.

I guess it's something to work on.
