Read. Listen. Watch. I Think You’ll Enjoy.
Each week on Sunday Shout Outs, I like to share the best bits of what I watched or read online recently. There’s no theme or common thread between these posts, but they are all thought-provoking and enjoyable.
This video, “Shake The Dust” by poet Anis Mojgani. His first line prolly had you a little worried…
This post, “Actually, Scratch That” by John Blase. Here’s my favorite part: “The timeline’s different for each of us, but at some point you have to stop fighting your parents or religion or 1950s America or your no-good-son-of-a-bitch-ex-spouse or quite possibly even yourself. Yes, yourself. Signify this truce by beating your sword into a plowshare. Actually, scratch that…”
This post, “Lessons From The Eiffel Tower” by Seth Godin. It’s short and direct and will fire you up (what Seth does best).
This post, “Slinging Around First Draft Emails” by Ben Arment. He’s got a point when he says, “I think a lot of us are slinging around first-draft emails. They’re thoughtless, cold, impersonal. We’ve turned email into a task-list and nevermind who’s on the receiving end of our productivity.”
OK. Now you go.
What did you read or watch or listen to online this past week that I will enjoy? C’mon! Share…
So this is a double response -to this post and to the earlier one about amusing videos. I cannot watch this video without laughing. Hopefully it brings some cheer to others as well!
oops- I better rewrite that last email!
