Nibbles and Yum-Yums: July 9, 2010

This post is a part of the weekly series in which I share my favorite Internet finds from the past week. Enjoy!

Your Job Mismatch Will Kill Your Career

This article really hit home with me. I’ve been in a job mismatch before and I experienced everything outlined here. And, ultimately, I came to the same conclusion…

Life Design + Unicorns = Awesome

This past week, my Twitter friend, Erika Lyremark (the infamous Daily Whip) introduced me to Alexandra Franzen (freelance writer/personal branding extraordinaire and all-around awesome chick) and her blog, which is probably one of the most exciting Internet finds I’ve stumbled upon in recent months. It’s called—get this—Unicorns for Socialism. I don’t know….just go with it. I DO know that I like it. And I especially like her Life Design 2010 idea. It actually inspired me to think about my own Life Design. So keep your eye out for that. I’ll post it here when I’m done. But be warned, it won’t be nearly as pretty as Alexandra’s.

Letting Go Of Your Ego at Work

This post is written by Christopher Edgar, author of Inner Productivity, a fabulous book I reviewed for OfficeArrow several months ago. Here, he looks at procrastination and the ever-troublesome ego at work. Not that I’ve ever experienced problems with my ego getting in the way at work or anything…I’m just thinking of you guys. (Did that sound convincing?)

Why Not Start Now?

I just discovered Patty Bechtold and her wonderful blog! She’s a wonderfully descriptive writer and her posts just suck me in. I was fortunate to stumble upon her 99th post, in which she reflects on the simple philosophy emerging. After reading it, I knew I’d be visiting regularly.

The Secret Stress Buster No One Dares Tell You About

I absolutely adore this post. I’m not going to tell you the secret thing he’s talking about here. You’ll have to go read it for yourself. But ultimately, it’s all about shedding the victim mentality and MAN, that’s what people need to hear. I admire the writer of this article for his straight-up, no B.S. approach.

  1. Hi Chrissy – Thank you so much for visiting my blog and sharing it with others. I really appreciate that. And I love the idea of combining nutrition and career – very clever, and much needed! So often our careers and not nourishing us, and we don’t understand that there are steps we can take to get more nutrition out of what seems like a career that’s full of empty calories. (See, your idea is so good I can’t help but want to play with the metaphor!)

    Patty, thanks for stopping by! Glad you like the metaphor and YES, it’s totally addictive to play with it once you start. Empty calories…writing that one down!
