Monday Start: Resources for the Week


From Business Insider see “How to Start an Interesting Conversation with Anyone.”  This is a good piece.  Far too many people are passive in the company of others.  This could be very helpful.


This post from Life Hack is a reminder that there is value in reviewing one’s goals.  See “5 Actions You Should Take to Plan Your Next 5 Years Well.”


This is a good post by the former Stanford University dean.  See “Former Stanford dean explains why helicoptering parenting is ruining a generation of children.”

David Brooks

I like New York Times columnist David Brooks.  Like any writer, I don’t agree with everything he says.  I like Brooks because he makes me think.  I also like him because he is not predictable.  See his recent columns here.

On Being

I occasionally listen to NPR’s radio program On Being with Krista Tippett.  Recently I listened to a portion of the podcast with Adam Grant, “Successful Givers, Toxic Takers, and the Life We Spend at Work.”
