I am 4000% over my social media fast. I'm keeping fastidious notes of my downward spiral, which I'll post next week. I'll also be glad to start a new challenge, which is also a doozy but at least won't require me to learn breaking news two days late. If you get the Secret Posts, then you already know my next challenge. I hope some of you will join in with me. I'll write more about it on the first day of the month.
I'm going to do full posts of them soon, but I just wanted to mention two books I've read lately that have stood out to me: How To Win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie is only $2.99 for kindle and is the best relational book I've ever read. Not that I've read many relational books. But do yourself a favor. It's a quick read and will start changing your relationships today.
For your weekend reading pleasure:
- The best thing I've read all week: There is No That. I was trying (not nearly so eloquently) to say something similar to this with my 2014 theme Do The Work. This is what I keep coming back to, and the message that keeps coming back to me. A moral boomerang. (Fizzle)
- Speaking of....19 Hard Things You Need To Do To Be Successful. (Business Insider)
- Look how cute this technique is for making custom greeting cards. This would be a fun and easy thing to try. (Frankie Magazine)
- I've droned on for years that my book club changed my sense of community in Los Angeles, so I liked this New York Times Piece Really? You're Not In A Book Club? (Also? I'm reading The Goldfinch. I'm a cliche!)
This weekend we're going to the Kids Choice Awards. The Gorilla directed a little segment. If you tune in, watch for the part with a certain red-headed Olympic and X-games athlete.
