Follow on from last week’s post, some things I read this week that might be of interest:
- Zen Habits – How to Develop an Awesome Sense of Direction – I’m glad I’m not the only one with a terrible sense of direction! Some great tips on what you can do to try and orientate yourself in a new place. Can’t rely on Google Maps for everything!
- Buzzfeed – 21 Feminist Books Every Girl Should Read In Her Lifetime – Have read 13/21 of these! But I do think I’d like to make my own list one day. Sheryl Sandberg’s book Lean In seems to be missing!
- Zapier – How an Award Winning Food Blogger Used Trello, Todoist and Zapier to Grow Traffic 10x – Really getting into Zapier and all it offers at the moment – this a great blog about developing content for blogs using these three great tools.
- Inc.com – Bill Gates, Warren Buffett And Oprah All Use The 5-Hour Rule – Love the idea that if you spend an hour a day reading/creating/thinking then it can add to your success. Seems obvious really! I went through a phase of listening to TED talks every morning for a while which was great for this. I do try to put time aside for regular reading (actually writing this blog is helping me keep to a schedule for the moment) but it’s hard work.
- Backchannel – “Airbnb’s Sheryl Sandberg” is the Valley’s Quiet Superpower — Backchannel – really interesting article about Belinda Johnson, Chief Business Affairs and Legal Officer (read Brian Chesky’s Right Hand) and how she’s helped keep Airbnb ahead of the game.
- Zapier – Trello Everything: 28 Ways to Maximize Your Work with the Visual Task Management Tool – Well it wouldn’t be a blog from me if it didn’t have Trello in it would it?!
- Harvard Business Review – Learn to Love Networking – A great article on things to focus on when meeting new people. Some tips in here that I’m definitely going to try out!
You’ll notice that I dip into the same blogs often (Trello, Zen Habits, Zapier) – so if you think of any website that you think I should check out – please do let me know as I’m totally on the look out for new things to read and use for curation.
