Here’s a few quick things that have helped to build me up lately. I hope you enjoy as well!
1. WHAT TO DO WHEN YOU’RE BURNED OUT.
I particularly connected with Todd’s admonition to “prune extensively”. I have cut more out of my life this year than any other. Some pruning has been painful. Other pruning has been downright liberating and empowering. I believe the key is to make it a habit. Bob Goff said at a recent conference I attended that he quits something everything Thursday. I love that! Can you just imagine the clarity and freedom that could come from even the smallest things we quit that don’t contribute to our life? Amazing!
2. BEATING THE ANXIETY OF ONLINE READING
I used to feel so overwhelmed at the impossible task of keeping up with all the blogs I followed, sure that if I didn’t read it all I would miss something vital to my life and success in my field.
What an absolutely relief to come across this article! It’s given my life back and helped me only spend time reading that which is really expedient for the moment. Oh yes… and gave me courage to “prune” my list. Is there a theme going on here?
3. IS NOT FOR PROFIT SUSTAINABLE–EVEN FOR A GOOD CAUSE?
It is so noble to want to give away your work for free for a good cause. And HOLY MOLY was this article amazing! It’s the best thing I’ve ever read on why traditional approaches just don’t work–all while presenting some amazing strategies to actually be sustainable with that type of business plan.
4. THE BIGGEST THREAT TO YOUR CREATIVITY
Oh yeah. Think it’s already been done before so why try? Check it out!
I feel like I’m constantly pruning…and then adding other stuff back in. I’m off to read Todd’s thoughts! I need them. Thanks for sharing your bits of inspiration around the interwebs. 🙂
