Every week on Friday, I share a list of the most interesting and inspiring content I’ve read lately here on my blog. You can expect thoughts on productivity, happiness, balance, spirituality, politics, and more. Subscribe here to get updates. See archives here.
I was lucky enough to see a conversation between Misha Glouberman and David McRaney of You Are Not So Smart this past weekend and left with pages of notes on all the interesting things they discussed. A standout section was about the LA LGBT Leadership Lab and the amazing work they’re doing to help change the world. I plan to watch some of the conversations they’ve had that are up on their YouTube channel to see people’s minds change in real time.
I also saw Mouthpiece this week and oh my goodness. If it’s coming to a city near you, please go and see it. So powerful, so interesting, so many tears, so much talent.
100 ways to be an ally to people of colour. Good, practical, awesome advice!
Some of the things that might be missing from your job description but are crucial parts of your job. This reminds me a lot of what Amanda Ashford talked about during her talk for Creative Mornings last week.
Love the idea of creating an internal scorecard for how you choose who to work with. Such a fun (and helpful!) strategy.
I liked this fun and kind of different ice breaker question. My answers would be: 1. Pretending to tap dance/hip hop dance/Irish dance. 2. Writing for social media.
I liked this little productivity guide, and my favourite part was this: Stay on paper as long as possible. Sketch and write things out long-hand, possibly even emails.
Hi and thanks for reading! This week was a sad one here in Toronto as you may have seen in the news. Gratefully I don’t personally know anyone directly affected by the attack, but it left a mark on all of us. I am sending lots of love and light to anyone who might need it this week. This weekend I’m so thankful I’ll get to spend some much-needed time with my loved ones and soak them in. Life is precious. xo.
