Though the inspiration to write hasn't been present the last few months, I have been doing a LOT of reading and listening. Here are a few tools from my exploration that I want to share with you. Enjoy!
Podcast: Beautiful Writers Podcast - The interviewers are kooky and fun. They bring on guests I've listened to before, like Seth Godin or Brene Brown, but there's a quality to the Q&A that always leaves me inspired. (ht Caroline Sheahan).
Article: The "Adaptable Leader" is the new Holy Grail - Become One, Hire One - I'm a big fan of First Round Review because I can really interact with their articles. It's hard to just read their material without working through the thoughtful questions that change the way you think and approach problems.
Book: Reinventing Organizations: A Guide to Creating Organizations Inspired by the Next Stage of Human Consciousness - This book is fascinating, and a must-read for anyone working in the corporate world. Based on the premise that most people are good apples, not bad, the book goes on to show a variety of successful companies that have adopted flexible work environments that truly put employees first. In fact, if you want to categorize your company, check out What Color Is Your Organization?
App: Bodyweight Training: You Are Your Own Gym - I used this app on and off over the last year, but earnestly got into it just before the Holidays last year. The "Quick Workouts" are fast, but far from easy, and I've done the 12-minute workout 82 out of the last 90 days. I don't get exhausted, and instead feel stronger and more energized.
