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.
- Do you curse? Turns out profanity might be good for you. Noah Berlatsky explains why swearing isn’t as bad as you think in his piece in Quartz.
- “I’ve written extensively, intimately, damningly, about my children for seven years without once thinking about it from the point of view of their feelings and their privacy. A few months ago I stopped.” I adore this New York Times essay by Elizabeth Bastos, “Why I Decided to Stop Writing About My Children.”
- Have you thought about including an accountability partner to meet your goals? Andre Sólo demonstrates how having a goal buddy helps you achieve success in “The Surprising Way to Grow Your Productivity.”
- How do you deal with the cavalry of bad news? Maybe tuning out is the answer. Deborah Sosin makes a compelling argument in “When Breaking News Breaks Your Spirit, Is It OK To Tune Out?“
