Well, it’s been awhile since I’ve sent an update about what’s going on with my travels. Like I mentioned yesterday, I’m now back home in New Jersey. I’d rather not get into why I’m here, but suffice to say I need to spend the next few weeks with my family and loved ones.
It’s time for our weekly column, Steve’s Sunday Selections. Today, we a great list of posts from many excellent blogs. So let’s get started…
The internet is definitely my favorite resource for research and learning, but I’ve been reading something that I’ve started recommending to anyone who will listen. The book I’ve discovered– Crush It: Why NOW Is the Time to Cash in on Your Passion by Gary Vaynerchuk– offers some pretty simple, straightforward advice about how to get what you really want out of life.
In 2007 a movie called “The Bucket List” hit the theaters.
Over a week ago I described my professional goals for 2010. In this post I discussed how I was going to spend the majority of the year focusing on “communications.” Specifically I want to improve my writing, speaking, and technology skills.
But goal setting isn’t just about professional growth. I also think it’s important to create challenges that’ll help me grow as a man. This is part of my ‘work hard, play hard’ mantra. So while I’m focusing on my communication skills, I also want to set aside time to work on my personal growth.
