I didn’t always know how to read. When I was a one-year-old, I just wanted to eat books and magazines. But now, the slightly older version of me can’t get enough of reading them. Perhaps in my older years (40s?) I’ll go back to eating them. I’ll keep you updated on that.
In the meantime, here are a few articles I’ve read and enjoyed lately. Feel free to read or eat them as you may.
- Seth Godin explains how you can use fear as fuel for getting things accomplished.
- A very smart, funny and impactful fellow by the name of Baratunde Thurston, is interviewed by The Great Discontent and hilarity and throughtfulness ensue.
- Lifehacker takes quotes from Jay-Z and turns them into productivity lessons.
- An INC.com interview where Michael Bloomberg shares how fiercely loyal (and cold) he can be, and how he may take the “hit by a truck” theory a bit too serious.
- Kurt Vonnegut’s daily routine, in which he shares something I can especially relate to in my older years: “…sleep and hunger and work arrange themselves to suit themselves, without consulting me.”
- You’re going to hear a lot of buzz around the new Spike Jonze film, “Her,” so here’s a great article profiling the indie director, and how this particular idea came about.
More link roundups to come. I enjoy reading what others are reading so I’m paying it forward.
