Best Blogs 20 June 2014

Welcome to #BestBlogs, the weekly curation of the world of work.

The latest ideas on organization life, personal collaboration and the politics of work from practitioners around the globe are collected here so you may become more effective, perhaps even more satisfied, in career.

Every week our themes emerge organically and this week the writers included share their insight on being more effective in our professional life. What are the tools and choices we can make to be more human in a modern world?

These fine authors offer you different and fresh perspectives on the intersection of life and work.

Simon Jones knows its all relative. In this simply clear stunner he takes on executive pay and its motivating factors and discusses why it works to our individual benefit. And to the detriment of the organization. Whether you're into football or compensation @Ariadneassoc makes everything relatively easy to grasp and see

Bernadine Herlihy celebrates one year of blogging with some insight into what works – and doesn't – for her. With her fluid style and eminent sense its hard to think its been just 365 days. Goes to show you never know what you can do until you try. Check out @TheMgmtMaven for daily inspiration

Carlos Escobar got out of bed for a training run recently and wished he hadn't. In this all too familiar report (a fellow Texan, I too run in our climate) Carlos talks about what he could have – and wished – he had done, and its implications for preparing for more than just his next race. See @CEscobar78 for other sound advice

Karlina Millers presents a beautiful metaphor about driving straight through to the end without appreciating where we are right now. Precise and prescient Karlina knows more than her years would seem to offer: do yourself a favor and follow her as I do @KarlinaErika
