Below are some really great, entertaining, and thought provoking posts & articles. Please check them out and let me know what you think.
Good at math (Seth Godin) – This post arrived in my in box after my 9 year old daughter told me she wasn’t good at math. I told her she was too young to make that decision. I told her that only after she has taken Calculus that she could she tell me she didn’t like math or it wasn’t her best subject. She then asked me what Calculus was and she, her brother and I laughed out loud at that silliness. 🙂
People don’t resist change. They resist being changed. (gapingvoid) – A perfect cartoon to describe how people react to change.
Get Lucky (Fred Wilson) – Fred appears to be one of the luckiest people I know. A famous VC and blogger, great family, good health, etc. He links to an article Richard Wiseman wrote on lucky and unlucky people. He said the money quote was “My research revealed that lucky people generate good fortune via four basic principles. They are skilled at creating and noticing chance opportunities, make lucky decisions by listening to their intuition, create self-fulfilling prophesies via positive expectations, and adopt a resilient attitude that transforms bad luck into good.”
“How do I get rid of the fear?” (Seth Godin) – No, the right question is, “How do I dance with the fear?”Aruni | Filed under: entrepreneur, entrepreneurship, FYI, Just For Fun | Tags: career management, cloe madanes, fred wilson, gapingvoid, good at math, scott uhrig, seth godin | Comments Off on Read ‘Em, Weep, and Laugh
