5 Ways To Win This Week

KNOWING IS HALF THE BATTLE

Back in the 80s, G.I. Joe did an ongoing series of PSAs that always ended with the same catchphrase, "Now you know, and knowing is half the battle." It was a catchphrase, but at the same time, a benediction. It could sneak past the viewer, but there is huge and hidden encouragement in those words. Good works are right in front of you. You don't have to worry about trying to figure out what to do, because now you know. This week's simple helps are based off wise words from wise people. We know what to do, and that's half the battle.
