I am a voracious reader and every week I come across either a book, online piece or website I want to share with others. I’ve decided to curate these gems and highlight them on Friday. I hope you find these faves as insightful as I do.
- “Your ability to connect is a resource much more precious than money, so manage it well. It may sound cold-blooded to say you must divest yourself of the relationships that give you consistent losses, but unless you do this, you’ll soon run out of capital, and you’ll have no connection energy left to invest in anybody. So please, decide now to deliberately limit the time and attention you spend on “low yield” relationships.” Martha Beck’s quote and her entire piece, “Logging Off: The Power of Disconnection” is a can’t miss read on trying to find what works for you in a world which is too connected.
- David Brooks honors midlife in his essay, “The Middle-Age Surge.” I loved the theme of reconceptualizing what midlife means and when certain choices are eliminated, it isn’t necessarily a negative, but liberating.
- Want to watch something fun? Check out James Corden’s carpool karaoke with Jennifer Lopez. It’s uplifting to witness the banter, the jokes and of course, the singing.
- What if you stopped writing? What does that mean? Interesting perspective by Jennifer Hill in “The Writing Life: Please Stop Writing,” in Hippocampus Magazine.
