- Are you havng fun – This is where I got my quote about kids being kings
- Steve Pavlina’s post on light workers is interesting and worth a read. Like a lot of Steve’s stuff it is a little left of centre yet he always seems to keep a great grasp on the deeper truth regarding personal development.
- Five quick tips to keep the glass half full – One of the essential requirements of any leader is to be able to remain optimistic.
Here is a couple to start with:
- “Get off of the ground, but stay out of the clouds” – Be able to take a step back occasionally and get a good perspective on what is happening in your life so those “little things” are marginalized, but be careful you don’t get so far up and away from that you lose track of any lessons to be learned or changes in direction that should occur.
- “Open mind, open skies” – An open mind is critical to keeping a positive perspective; it creates a feeling of freedom that keeps you soaring in the open skies instead of being stuck in the fishbowl.
- The Blog Herald is a great source of news on what’s happening in the blogosphere

Bloggers who I subscribe to who aren’t saying much (hopefully just at the moment):
- Guy Kawasaki – When I first started reading his blog I was refreshed by his input but lately his posts have not excited me very much at all. At one stage he got too interested in his Technorati rating I find that people who talk about how popular they are becoming boorish to say the least. Then the content just got boring it stopped connecting with me for a start.
One of the things that I am thinking about at the moment is Steven Covey’s 8th Habit, to find your voice. In the world of Web 2.0 I believe that our highest calling will be to express the voice of the community. How this works in reality is currently being worked out in the blogging world as we see the global conversation growing every day.
It will be those people who are able to take that conversaton and hear it’s voice and be able to then speak to a wider community in a language that they understand that will be successful in the future.
More on this in the very near future…..
