I’d hoped to have a non-links in between this post and the first Primilinks post, but I wasn’t able to squeeze it in. I plan on writing a few over the 3-day weekend we have coming up.
But to hold you over until then, here is a smattering of some of the great links I’ve come across over the past 48 hours. I learned a great deal by humbly reading them and am now pridefully planning how to incorporate the lessons into my own life.
No matter how good things are, they can always be better. That’s why we get up every day, right? 🙂
Happy reading, and have a great 4th of July weekend!
The first link is not to a particular post but rather to an entire site. I implore you to check out the website Lost at E Minor. A good friend of mine posted it on Facebook earlier today, a friend whose links I always check out because she always likes fun, interesting, enlightening things. This certainly qualifies.
Not only did I already find six new songs to add to my iTunes playlist – and that was by listening to just the first 8 or 9 most recent song recommendations – but the site also features an assortment of interesting pictures and paintings and videos and, well, just all kinds of great things. Check it out.
Next up, there is this short story about Bruce Lee. I found it browsing Reddit. The main idea is a timeless, universal message that Lee used as a driver in his life, and it fits in perfectly with what I’m trying to start here.
I will probably turn this into its own post at some point, but I might as well not withhold it from you until then. It’s 10 new rules for email from TED’s Chris Anderson. And they’re brilliant.
Check out this thoughtful, introspective post by Jonathan Fields entitled “Flipping the Extrovert Switch.” I think this guy and I have a lot in common. I’m subscribing to his blog right now. (Hat tip to Grace Boyle, whose Friday Linky Love is always a great spot for links.)
And finally, a post about expectations from Zen Habits. And what you should do with them. Namely, toss them in the ocean.
