The latest ideas on organization life, collaboration and our personal power in worklife from practitioners around the globe are collected here so you too may become more effective, perhaps even more satisfied, in career.
Every week our theme emerges organically and this week we find our authors taking a searingly personal look at focus, personal being and the space they occupy today. And tomorrow.
These fine authors offer fresh and different perspectives on the intersection of life and work. Read on to test some of your own assumptions about life, practice and work.
Dr Christi Hegstad wants to tell you you just one thing: focus. A woman after my own heart (how many times have I tweeted “focus wins”!) @DrChristiCoach knows that sometimes to do our best we have to do just one thing at a time. Read Christi regularly (as I do) to see how to build, maintain and leverage that focus
I Am So Fired asks the essential question: are you a writer? If so, what are you writing? This new find for me is personal, special and enjoyable. I believe Afire will be in my constant blog rotation: she writes clearly and with conviction. Yes friends, she is a writer
Kathy Stoddard Torrey does not have big ears. I know it, you know it and thank heavens at some point Kathy figured it out too. But it took a long time to drop the input from a misguided remark, like it does for so many of us. Want your garden to grow? Read @kstorrey
Julie Drybrough does not want you to get caught up in all sorts of shiny. And much as I like the explosion of color that entails, Julie is right. Its not enough to be enamored of the latest tool, technique or trial: at some point we have to do the damn work. @Fuchsia_Blue will help you with that and if you're very good, she may throw a little glitter and pomp your way
K.L.Register urges us to hold hands, not guns, to stand in prayer and not in line, to make a conscious effort to be different, to be better, to be better than we were yesterday. #BestBlogs was designed to showcase aspiring and inspiring writers: K.L.Register more than meets that need… Please read her as I do
Cherish Bentley acknowledges what we all know: performance reviews aren't really reviews and they don't actually drive performance. What if we got the right people in the right place with the right vision asks @CherishBentley? Wouldn't that just be performance without the review? See Cherish to find out
Kayla Cruz is getting married (lucky guy) so she she can be excused for having too much on her plate to do all the things she loves: but Kayla ain't no quitter. She's taking on a new year, new job, new marriage and saying – I'm gunna do this. So the next time you feel a lack of energy, tap into Kayla. @GenY_Girl isn't sitting still, and neither should you
Ankita thinks its time we got up off our seats and actually did something. You know, like the rest of the world? In this economical and ecumenical write Antika asks us if what we're doing is really enough. In other words, isn't there more? See Antika to find out
Lidiya K speaks the simple truth: chop wood, carry water and the rest will take care of itself. There is no mystery, no wonder, just the living. In this moment, the now. Forget yesterday, stop thinking about tomorrow, there is but one thing in front of you. @LidiyasBlog will help you find it
Thank you for reading this week's edition of #BestBlogs all about building and practicing meaningful worklife.
Each writer offers a practiced yet challenging perspective enabling us to re-examine our own personal positions. In life, look for those who challenge your thinking to help you grow!
Please come back in another seven days' time for further thoughts and do check the archives of #BestBlogs for other intelligent writers, thinkers and doers addressing important questions about worklife.
Have a wonderful weekend wherever you are in the world my friends.
