Good morning last day of November! I will confess that I am in denial that tomorrow is the start of December. I am so not even close to being ready for Christmas this year, and have yet to get into the Christmas spirit. Highly unusual for me, who usually starts listening to Christmas music on November first – here I am, changing the radio station if I hear any indication of a Christmas song. So bizarre.
This weekend is going to be a semi-quiet one for us, definitely something we need since after this one it’s going to be busy with Christmas stuff, birthday parties, friends/family wedding stuff… So I’m definitely looking forward to this weekend with very little to do. Huzzah!
In the past couple of weeks, I found quite a few interesting reads on the interwebs… I wanted to share some of my favourites. Definitely take a few minutes to read them if you have a chance, they’re all quite good and thought-inspiring.
- This is an extremely eye opening look at the bullying experience from the eyes of a child. It’s quite an emotional read, so you may need a tissue with you.
- Seth Godin has some meta thoughts on fear, avoiding fear, and how fear can push us to new places creatively.
- Laura at I’m an Organizing Junkie has 6 rewards of living an organized life… now if only I had the time to get organized so that I could get to that whole “more time” reward.
- I’ve been writing a few things for my employer’s blog as well over the past couple of weeks: Keeping users on your real estate website, Where can I find images to use for my website?, Writing for your real estate website, and The importance of brand consistency. (I may have linked to the last one previously, but it’s still really important stuff that anyone who manages any part of a brand may want to look into.) While a lot of what is covered is geared towards those in the real estate industry, most of what is covered can be applied to any industry.
