In many ways, the seventies was a transitional decade. It began when the anti-war sentiment was powerful in the country and when people were rejecting materialism in favor of social justice. However, by the end of the decade, things had shifted, and people felt differently about making money and obtaining material goods. Have you ever wondered if you could have been a success in the seventies? Take a look and see! Here are seven keys to success for people in the seventies.
As you might know, I love to read books. I believe it’s one of the best ways to learn and get inspired. An example of books that I read recently is the biography of Elon Musk.

I love reading biographies. I believe it’s a good way to learn about life. The biography that I read recently is Elon Musk by Ashlee Vance. It’s a well-written book about an interesting man. Elon Musk runs two innovative companies: SpaceX (a space company that sends satellites to orbit) and Tesla (a car company that produces electric cars). He is also the chairman of SolarCity (a solar-cell company). If you have watched the movie Iron Man, you might be familiar with the character Tony Stark.

Well, I do use OneNote, but my main note-taking app – the one that I use the most – is Short Notes. Short Notes is an iOS app that I develop myself. I was looking for a note-taking app that fits my needs, but I couldn’t find one, so I decided to develop Short Notes.
