We all know the importance of a Weekly Review, right?!
I’m beginning a new feature to provide highlights of the past week at The Daily PlanIt, with tools and information to develop work and life skills. You can view the highlights on Flipboard, and read the summary below.
In the past week, we celebrated Valentine’s Day, a good time to reflect on choosing love, whether we are single, or in a relationship. Single people can appreciate family and friends, and those in a relationship can express gratitude for their special person as well.

What a blessing it was to escape the cold weather and enjoy the warm sunshine for awhile! And how thankful I am to have this wonderful man in my life!
This week I found an awesome quote from Kid President: “Create something that will make the world awesome.”

Turn ideas into assets for the fun and excitement of creating something that adds value.
That was one of the main points I got from a book I read last year that had a big impact on me: “Rich Dad, Poor Dad” by Robert Kiyosaki:
