Monday Start: Resources for the Week

start_button_gifI was home with the flu last week.  (I wouldn’t wish that on anyone!)  There were a few sites that I stumbled upon while I was out.  You may find these helpful (below).  I also finished Wayne Muller’s book Sabbath: Finding Rest, Renewal, and Delight in Our Busy Lives and Ian Paul and David Wenham’s Preaching from the New Testament. Finally, do you read “How I Work” which appears at lifehacker.com each week? This is a great series.  I read each one.

This may help

Note the recent New York Times Article, “If You Want to Meet That Deadline, Play a Trick on Your Mind.”  The title alone caught my eye.  Interesting piece on ways to manipulate your perception of time which can actually help you meet your goal.

Creativity

Ann Handley wrote a good piece on creativity based on a video by Sir Ken Robinson.  One particular sentence stuck with me from her post:  “…creative people know that creativity finds expression in many ways.”  Creative people, regardless of what they do for a living, look for different ways to do what needs to be done.

Secrets

See this interesting post by Oliver Burkeman, “Why We Tell Strangers Our Secrets.”  Also note the article in Harvard Magazine “Choosing Confidents” based on the same research.

Decisions

See Shane Parish’s post “The Decision-Maker: A Tool for a Lifetime.” (I realize there is something to be said about spiritual discernment which really isn’t discussed in this article.  However, I still find these kinds of posts interesting and even helpful.)
