Each week, I try to collect the best of the web links to articles and blog posts that I read and share them with you. There are generally a ton of great ones out there, and I’m always looking for new material to read. I hope you enjoy them!
- 8 Ways to Create Focus (when focus is fleeting) – Be More With Less. This is a great list…and a great reminder to myself to use my Pomodoro and I Done This apps. I’ve been making use of the latter for the last couple of weeks and it does feel good to be able to look back over what I’ve done and feel a sense of accomplishment.
- By the Handful – Finding Serendipity. I love these photos and the commentary that goes with them. I think it’s part of what inspired me to snap a picture of the “weeds” growing in the empty lots next to my work.
- The Weight We Carry – Love.Life.Eat. I linked to this already once this week in my Wednesday post, but it was one of the best things I read during the course of the week. We talk a lot about being careful about what we say around young girls, mothers needing to model healthy body image for their daughters, etc, and I wonder when we’re going to truly begin doing it not for these amorphous (for me) “others” but for ourselves.
- Healthcare Failure – The Everyday Journey. Aimee is a friend from high school, and I’m excited about where she’s going. I’m equally frustrated by her experience with the health care system. As some one who has insurance that I can’t afford to use, I can’t help but wonder why in the hell we can’t figure out health care in this country. (I know the answer to this. I do. I just hate saying it)
- Killer Mike Ghetto Gospel and Homecoming – The Bitter Southerner. Please tell me that you’re subscribing to The Bitter Southerner. It is incredible and I love them more than I can say.
- How to Prep for a House Guest – VMac & Cheese (originally shared by Love.Life.Eat). It’s a little late for me to get this ready for the Sner’s visit in a week and a half but perhaps for other visitors this summer.
- A Step by Step Guide on How to Complete Your 2014 Career Goals – Ashley Caprice. Could be helpful to me.
- Forget Big Data. Use Little Data for Incremental Self-Improvement – John Caddell for 99u. I’ve started doing a few versions of this – at least the keeping track piece. I’ll soon be ready to begin the evaluating part. We’ll see if it’s helping me any.
What did you find interesting on the interwebs this week?
