Cool Links for Week of March 2nd

Posted by 3 March, 2009


I ran my first half marathon this past weekend. My goal was to run the whole time without stopping for a break. I’m very happy to report that I did this and finished with a time of 2:02:54. I’m really happy with how everything turned out. I have my sights set on running a marathon in December. Now onto the links of the week!

Mike over at Learn This has a great series on Inspiration:

8 Ways to Inspire Others

8 Ways to Find Inspiration

8 Ways for Acting on Inspiration

Unleashing Your Dreams: Living Up To Your Potential – Great article. Jeff also included one of my favorite quotes: “He that is good for making excuses is seldom good for anything else” by Benjamin Franklin.

Can Monotony Ever Be a Good Thing? – If you assume that monotony and boredom are the same thing, I would say that monotony is not a good thing, but there are exceptions. The one exception that comes to mind is when you are grieving and trying to get past a bad memory. In this instance, I think monotony can be a good thing.

Mental Tips on How to Start a Business for Lazy People – Steve provides some great tips for starting a business. I like that he mentions that we should “change our habits gradually.” This has been echoed by many books and bloggers, but it’s a good thing to remember when tackling any large goal.

How to Attract and Influence People on Twitter – The Ultimate Twitter Resource – Be sure to check this guide out. Derek put a lot of time into this post and it shows!

Top 10 Tool For Landing a Better Job – If you are looking for a job, this is a post you should check out. This article provides great tips and links for finding a job, salary negotiations, how to look the part, and resume writing.

Fort Worth Rated Among Healthiest Housing Areas – It’s pretty interesting to see so many Texas cities on the list of healthy housing markets. Don’t Mess with Texas!

Entrepreneurs Not Feeling Stimulated – It’s sad to see the backbone of America being neglected, but some of the greatest businesses of all time have been founded during tough economic times.

Two Envelopes We Are All Born With – This is a pretty neat post by Evita. She also provided an excellent video of Napoleon Hill.

My Four Hour Work Week (The Series) – Maria at Never the Same River Twice has a great series on her version of the 4 hour work week. She has a lot of great insight and some great resources as well.

Investment Strategy for Recession: Capital Preservation with Safe Investments – If you are risk adverse, this is a great article on how you can get a small return while keeping your capital.

10 Reasons It’s Good the Economy Sucks – I was happy to find this article. While many people are talking about how bad the economy is, this blogger has a more positive perspective on the economy.

Building Buzz by Being Buzz Worthy – The best advice I found in this article was the list of Buzz blockers. “Typically buzz blockers include consumer distractions, forgetfulness, negative buzz, and time lapse.”

The 90-10 Rule for Successful Twitter Networking – This advice can be used in all facets of life, but it basically says give more than you receive on Twitter.

The Best Things in Life Really Are Free – My favorite part: “After all, free advice can’t be as good as paid advice, right?”

On March 16th, we will be hosting a carnival. If you are interested in participating, head on over to Kilroy’s Blog for more details.
