Time for another edition of Steve’s Sunday Selections! Today’s articles are a good selection of the three main themes of this site: Home business success, personal development, and lifestyle design. All six of these articles are definitely worth a read:
Lee has an interesting article critiquing the fact that some people are completely driven by materialism. Here he discusses how many think that success is indicated by the amount of “stuff” you accumulate. I found it interesting because I’ve come in the middle of purging process where I’m getting rid of a lot of my possessions. This article reminded me that you can have lots of success without feeling the need to show it through worldly possessions.
I feel a little guilty that I’ve haven’t posted anything recently from the Yoda of Personal Development. At Steve Pavlina’s site, he has an extremely thought provoking article about increasing your productivity. Here he discusses the concept of alternating weeks of effort. During the “on week” you focus 100% on work and don’t cave in to distractions. During the “off week” you focus on personal renewal and fun. This is a productivity exercise I might try when I get back from trip this summer.
At the 2ChicksatHome site they have a nice post about perseverance in your home business. I couldn’t help but link to this one because it discussed two of my passions—running and home business success. This article is a good read for anyone who has those moments of doubt with their Internet business.
Jack Humphrey has a great audio interview with Anissa Wardell about managing your social marketing campaign. (I’m actually listening to this as I write this post) Anyway, this interview has a bunch of great pointers for increasing efficiency in your social media campaigns. I’m definitely going to implement some of these tips.
Of course, I have to provide an article from my favorite blog about lifestyle design. Over at Chris Guillebeau’s site he has a post titled Overnight Success, Year Three. Here he has a ton of nuggets of wisdom about what kind of effort you need to put in to have a successful, high trafficked blog.
And since we’re talking about lifestyle design, I might as well post something from Tim Ferriss. On his site he has an excellent guest post called 5 Travel Lessons You Can Use at Home by Rolf Potts the author of the Vagabonding book. This is an excellent read and Rolf has a superb book that you should check out.
Well…it’s been another excellent week filled quality content. Once again, I’m struck with the feeling like I could have included many more posts in this entry.
I definitely recommend you check all these articles and support these sites through Tweets, blog comments, and submitting to sites like Digg. They work hard to provide content…so show them some love!Take Action. Get Results.
