Friday Linkage

Happy Friday! This week seemed longer than most to me. Anyone agree? But at the end of a longer-than-normal week, it's good to be reminded, by articles like Jon Acuff's recent guest post on Relevant, of the bigger picture.

At the end of a long week, it helps me to remember the point behind the daily grind, the bigger dreams of which daily jobs are just a small piece.

Speaking of the daily grind, I recently discovered John Maxwell's blog on leadership. His blog covers a wide variety of topics related to leadership, like time management, communication, and organization, and has a wealth of resources.

Another new favorite of mine is Small Notebook. The author writes prolifically about organization and time management in the context of real life. Her blog is also just beautiful!

On another note, I've always heard the mantra "Stupidity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results." (A friend pointed out that this is really just a sloppy revision of the original quote by Einstein...details, details).

But Seth Godin offers a new twist on this mantra when he writes " Persistence isn't using the same tactics over and over. That's just annoying. Persistence is having the same goal over and over."

What are your weekend plans?
