The ar­ti­cle ‘Trans­form your life 1 per cent at a time’ (De­cem­ber 12) was very in­for­ma­tive. I adopted this ap­proach re­cently and it works. I’m a work­ing woman who jug­gles fam­ily life. Find­ing time for my­self can be dif­fi­cult – but the 1 per cent prin­ci­ple helped me achieve what I wanted. Now by spend­ing a small amount of time ev­ery day I’m able to do lots of things.

Let me be­gin by con­grat­u­lat­ing the en­tire Fri­day team for com­ing up with an edi­tion that gets bet­ter ev­ery week. You have de­vel­oped me as a per­son. Read­ing was some­thing I never liked and now I look for­ward to Fri­day not be­cause it’s a week­end, but be­cause I’ll have a new is­sue of the mag­a­zine.

In last week’s is­sue, I was re­ally im­pressed by the ‘Mak­ing a Dif­fer­ence’ fea­ture on Toms (‘Mak­ing great strides’, De­cem­ber 12), the footwear company that gives away a pair of shoes to the needy for ev­ery pair it sells. What the company is do­ing is truly com­mend­able and I am ac­tu­ally plan­ning on buy­ing a pair of Toms to show my support for the cause.

Another ar­ti­cle that I liked was on how to trans­form our lives 1 per cent

Iwas in­ter­ested in the in­ter­view with hand­writ­ing ex­pert Janvi Gaur (‘What your hand­writ­ing re­veals about you’, De­cem­ber 12). was a scep­tic but after read­ing the ar­ti­cle, I found my­self analysing my scrib­ble to see what it re­vealed. I hate to ad­mit it, but her anal­y­sis was quite ac­cu­rate.
