It’s Friday and that means I get to share with you my weekly round up of articles that have made me stop and think and go Hmmmm.
These articles are on fire so check them out!
I learned that in tackling something I didn’t enjoy, like running, that I learned how to take control of not only body and mind, but of my life. — Nathan Hangen
I’ve been thinking quite a bit about we take what we know for granted. I expect other people to know what I know – after all, shouldn’t it be obvious? Pat Flynn at The Smart Passive Income Blog says not and shows us that It’s Dumb Not To Dumb It Down and that we should be trying very hard to overcome The Curse of Knowledge. A very interesting and thought-provoking post. It’s a great reminder that there are people out there screaming for us to tell them what we know. We all have such pools of knowledge and experience that we, as bloggers, can share with so many people. Let’s all learn from each other.
… the bottom line is, life is too short to keep doing shit you don’t love. – Sean Ogle
How true, Sean, how true! Quite the inspirational post. The picture of the cubicle farm is very familiar to what I see every weekday. Hmmm.
For something a little different, Hulbert guest-posted at The World’s Strongest Librarian and opened up about his OCD. I’m sure that you will find how he describes The Life Of An OCD Blogger to be as fascinating as I did. Wow, it really opened my eyes as to what some people go through on a daily basis. It just goes to show you that you really don’t know what goes through other people’s heads. I have more respect now than ever for Hulbert knowing the challenges he faces every day.
Finally, for some shameless self-promotion I wrote a very thought-provoking article at Ben’s site 6Aliens called, I Won The Lottery. Did I really win the lottery? Well, go check out the article and tell me if you’ve won the lottery, too.
I hope you enjoy this week’s offerings. What have you read this week that made you stop and think and go, Hmmmm? Let us know by leaving a comment. Thanks!
As always, have a a great weekend!
