Here’s a round up of a few posts I have had bookmarked and would like to share with you.
First up is this interesting post about victim conversations, and how to take charge of your destiny from Genuine Curiosity. We all get mired in our own victim conversations and we need a little nudge to change our conversations to something that will better serve our goals.
Over at Thinking Faster, Jim offers this post called, Confusing busy with results. I love this post because it rings true with what I believe (that’s why we love anything, right?) which is that managers who work too much could learn a few things.
Curt, over at the Occupational Adventure offers this great post called, Where is the clutter in your life? Having just finished a book today (OD Basics, coming out in December) I am WAY in need of clutter control. Curt’s post talks about a lot of types of clutter, of which I have several. Yikes!
And then for fun (it’s all fun) I thought I would pass along this post from Motorcycle Misadventures called, Harley roars after the active woman. I ride, and personally I would consider a Harley only after several other options. First, the bikes are just too darned heavy. I would like to think that if I dump it and there’s no one around to help (I’m not too shy to ask, been there, done that) that I have a SHOT at getting the bike up. Harleys are made of lead. Second, I am not interested in the whole machismo cult culture of Harley. BTW all the other bike makers are the same to a degree, but Harley goes out of its way to hone it. And third, but probably first in importance, I don’t think the design and look of most Harleys is all that interesting. The bikes are pretty ho-hum, really. When it comes to looks, I much prefer the BMWs, Triumphs, and some of the Italian bikes. I do like the American made aspect of Harley.
Here’s a picture of my old ride.
