Start your week right! Every Sunday I post my favorite links from around the web and share my goals for the upcoming week.
Being Super Busy Isn’t a Virtue: One of my biggest pet peeves is when you ask how someone is doing and they reply, “Super busy!” so I was excited when I came across this post by Kelly Gurnett for Amanda Abella’s blog. Gurnett challenges readers to take a hard look at their mile-long to-do list and see where they can eliminate to find more happiness.
Being Able to Walk Away From an Offer: Here’s a unique take on careers that I really haven’t read much about before. Melissa Anzman of Loosen Your White Collar writes about the importance of knowing when to walk away from a job offer. Thanks for tackling this tough topic, Melissa!

All My Exes Live In Texts: Why The Social Media Generation Never Really Breaks Up: Oh my goodness. This article by Maureen O’Connor for NY Mag is long, but genius.

9 Things Everyone Needs to Know About Success, Reality & Being Human: YES. Ash Ambirge from The Middle Finger Project gets 100 percent real about her life and business in this awesome post that everyone needs to read.

How To Actually Enjoy A Vacation: Hooray! My favorite time of year is here: vacation! And you’d think knowing how to actually enjoy vacation would come naturally, but sometimes it’s not so easy.

- Continue my workout schedule; I plan on doing lots of running and biking on the boardwalk.
