Happy Friday everyone and welcome to another edition of Best Blogs!
This is the weekly curation of workplace blogs dedicated to different thinking, leading perspectives and emerging thought about organization behavior. Writers featured in Best Blogs are practitioners and actively engaged in improving the world of work. They're solving problems, not simply identifying them!
Every seven days we scour the web looking for the best to share with you and your colleagues. Please help spread the word and work of the fine writers and thinkers who make up every collection of Best Blogs!

How can we balance demands and desires while we make a living even as we try to live a life. Read the Dr to find out.
Doug Shaw is busy making doodles. And wondering why you aren't as well. In this delightfully refreshing write Doug asks us to reflect on the things we “know” we can't do – and test those same assumptions. Art for work's sake is a clear and confirming acknowledgment that we all have talents, interests and joys: let us indulge them. More of Doug's brilliant ideas can be found @DougShaw1
Michael Cardus wants us to learn from our mistakes. The only challenge is sometimes we don't know we've made them. In this tract Michael helps us better uncover these learning opportunities while thinking differently about them. Follow more of Michael's insight @TeamBuildingNY
