Weekend Reading: My fav’s from this week: 4/2/10

Posted by Heather Villa, CMA, MBA, MSM on April 02, 2010 in: Weekend Reading

What To Do When Your Client is Boring – “No one is goals-oriented. Everyone is chocolate-and-sex-oriented. Make a note.” I figured that would get your attention. 😀  Once you click over there, try not to focus too much on the woman covered in chocolate. Taylor has some great suggestions on how to draw good useful information from your client when all they provide is plain and vanilla answers.

Why Pushing Through Is Not Always The Way To Get Ahead – Sometimes, knowing when to quit something is the smart move to make. On occasion we do need to walk away from something and revisit it with a fresh pair of eyes at a later date.

Top 10 Funny Dog Videos on YouTube – Funny videos of dogs – what else can I say? The sleep walking dog is my fav!! Dogs and video cameras; you can never go wrong with that combo!

Google Isn’t God – Have you ever been told that when you blog you should only focus on those in the same forum, type, or genre as our own blog? That by doing so it would create more chances for people to share your information, creating exposure for you and your site? While those things are true, only focusing on blogs of your own niche can get old fast. Barbara shares how reading posts outside you niche is fun and a great way to meet other bloggers.

“No” Your Way to Increased Productivity – Do you find yourself saying yes to things out of guilt? Are you buying things you really can’t afford? Do you take on tasks that interfere with your ability to spend time with your family? These are all things that bring us down, and can be avoided by saying “NO” to. Kudos to Marelisa for talking about this subject and reinforcing that it is ok to say NO.

How To Use The Turning Of The Seasons To Support Your Development – Great idea! It’s kind of like spring cleaning of the mind and soul. Christine talks about what she plans to do this weekend that is influenced by spring. Described in her article as “self-coaching”, Christine shares the process of writing down some thinking questions. This is a quick read with a very helpful and easy self improvement task takeaway.
