we members of the community scour the web to bring you a curated list of posts, links, and resources that we they think will help your business—and maybe even your life! This week’s curator: illustrator Laura Palmer.
Dear Austin Kleon, I'm a fan girl. There’s a whole bunch of advice in this list for any entreprenuer who wants to get smarter (and stronger) in the new year.
In 2015, I resolve to be centered. This article from Rachel Gillett on Fast Company is all about holding to those resolutions and how to keep, not kick, a habit.
Who knew the guy who knows how to “Party Hard” would give such rad advice on following your heart. Andrew W.K. nails it with this poetic response to the question I wrestle with all the time: “How do I just stop worrying and go for it?” [My favorite part: "The true duty of the mind is to serve the heart, not interfere with it. The mind's intelligence is best used in carrying out the desires of the heart -- directing the heart's loving and creative power out into the physical world.” Perfectly said, Mr. W.K.]
With all the noise on the internet and all the distractions in life, as a one woman shop it can be easy to get lost in it. Kate Arends directs us to David Foster Wallace and his “This is Water” speech as she tells us to “Find peace in imperfect places.”
This might not be easy for me to admit, but I do have “the time.” I’m busy you guys, but this Yoganonymous article by Meredith Cameron reminds me to be honest about my time, what I value and how to two are related.
Amy Turn Sharp (a talented poet) wrote a poem every single day in 2012. To me, this is a feat of incredible strength. This year she’s doing a similar project with the help of others: 365 poets. If you need a reminder that daily projects can happen with determination and stick-to-it-iveness (like I often do), Amy is a great inspiration.
