From My Inbox: A reminder...

Random interesting & useful 💩 pulled from the myriad of emails which land in my inbox.

From My Inbox: A reminder...

So…I wrote a book about networking.

  1. Is it perfect? No.
  2. Is there stuff I’d change it in? Hell yes!
  3. Does it provide a mindset and framework to get your networking on track? I think so…and so does the reader who sent this note:
I've been re-reading BYDN, and this morning I wrote down THIRTEEN new ideas for networking actions and initiatives. No joke!

And…receiving this email…was a personal reminder and serious kick-in-the-butt motivator…I did a hard, ambitious thing before, and it is time to really get on with doing it again.

Though, better this next time, much better.

Now, after that little interlude, the 💩 from my inbox:

  • Small Groups, Well Organized (Seth’s Blog)
  • December 6. Conversation with Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor, Harvard-trained and published neuroanatomist (Collective[i] Forecast) and if you’ve not watched her remarkable TED talk…what have you been watching?
  • The Tower Standing Watch Over Sixteenth Street (Diplomatica)
  • What is your secret ingredient to unlimited freedom? Take the quiz. (A Backyard Hiker)
  • Alain de Botton on the Qualities of a Healthy Mind (The Marginalian) and while I’m at it, I recommend binging Alain’s 3-part series The Perfect Home based on his book The Architecture of Happiness (episode 1, episode 2 and episode 3)
  • November 15 - How To Make A Career Pivot - a webinar presented by the Tory Burch Foundation
  • Explore a bioluminescent world of cellular life via cutting-edge microscopy (Aeon) and one extraordinarily wonderous and awe-inspiring video from Aeon, deserves a second: The ambitious project to document every fruit in watercolour | Pomological
  • Shout-out to the fab Janet Hanson for this gem: The ex-Goldman partner who’s singing and dancing about her retirement (AFR)
