From my Pocket – May 2015 edition


This is the first posting of “From my Pocket” series in the year 2015. And so, here are more than 5 links which have which have inspired me, made me think, made me wonder or made me laugh.

1. What no means by Seth Godin – A timely, short and pithy reminder on not taking a “No” personally. Especially powerful post for someone like me who hesitates to ask because of the fear of “No”
2. My not-so-basic rules for hiking with young children by Cherie Galyean – A nice post on hiking with small kids. An educational post since we are starting to do climbs and hikes along with our two-and-a-half year old

3. Leonardo da Vinci’s resume by Marc Cenedella – An awesome example of marketing – just what a freelancer or tinkerer needs to do to get employed or gain followers. What is remarkable is his format’s relevance today.

4. The light choice is the right choice. Don’t say yes until it feels … light. by Danielle La Porte – An awesome take on how to make choices. “The light choice is the right choice”. But not always the easiest choice to make. I must confess – though I like some of Danielle’s posts, quite often, her style of writing and delivery turn me off. I’m still trying to figure this one out.

5. Freedom comes from how you live at Raptitude.com – An interesting look at why what we do everyday, what we choose to do and not do, what we give into and what we resist – these make up our freedom in our lives

6. Freelancer: 10 Questions with Seth Godin Hugh McLeod at The Gaping Void with seth Godin – The title of the post says it all. The answers make you think, care you and give you hope. Like “Stress is a whole other game. Stress is wanting one thing and doing another.”
