How I Changed My Life, In Four Lines ‘What saves a man is to take a step. Then another step.’ ~C. S. Lewis How To Design a Lucky Life I'm no extrovert and I apply most of these to my life already. being an extrovert is no requirement: generosity, humbleness, asking questions, getting to know your neighbors, never speaking negatively...none of these are "extrovert" activities.
