Start your week right! Every Sunday I post my favorite links from around the web and share my goals for the upcoming week.
Forget Work-Life Balance: It’s Time for Work-Life Blend: Ron Ashkenas suggests forgetting work-life balance and considering what he calls “work-life blend” in this Forbes.com article. Not sure I one hundred percent agree with this one, but it’s an interesting read.
How to Bust Through a Plateau and Overcome a Career Slump: In a bit of a rut? Carrie Smith, blogger at Careful Cents opens up about going through a career slump and explains how she plans to get out of it.
Why Women Can’t Work Horizontally: My friend and fellow blogger Sarah Stackhouse highlights key learnings from the PA Conference for Women including why men work vertically and women work horizontally.
Look Who’s Back: My sister Jamie Lawlor (who you’ll quickly learn I completely adore and rave about constantly) has returned to blogging and shares an update on her PR and social media-filled semester.
Just For Fun:
- Get well! I’m not sure what happened, but on Friday my knee started hurting and when I tried to run my planned 6 miles yesterday, I had to cut it off at 3 because I was in pain. I want to concentrate on getting well, so I can complete my last two training runs before the Philadelphia Half Marathon strong.
- Prepare for my Social Media Tourism Symposium (#SoMeT12) presentation! I leave for El Paso, Texas in a little over a week, and I have lots to do before then! Eeks.
- Stop procrastinating. I’ve been putting off a few silly, little life things- making appointments, redeeming LivingSocial deals, etc. I have a to-do list full of random little things that I need to just focus on getting done.
