I have been a big fan of Rebecca's work. I may not have liked all that she's written but I have definitely applauded her for her courage and I respect her thoughts and opinion on things. Here she writes about her opting out of climbing the #career ladder after having written about it for years. Some people may not be happy with her decision or feel jaded about their careers and quests to get on top, but we have to realize some people's idea of #success could be very much different from the norm, i.e. a corner office, C-Suite position, fancy car, a big house. So go on doing what you feel is right for you and fuck all.

"Our greatest fear should not be of failure, but of succeeding at things in life that don't really matter." – Francis Chan

Don't let the title of this article fool you. I'm still all for #minimalism   especially in this world where money is never enough. We need to let our money work for us not the other way around.

'if I had a son and he happened to be gay, I can only hope that he would be built by massive amounts of love and encouragement, by defiance of the world’s expectations and surprising strength, and the hope that someone so extraordinary would garner more stellar adjectives than merely “gay.”'

"[R]ealize that your business is really only as valuable as the relationships you have with your customers. There is no way you can ever ensure that others won’t imitate your work. You just need to serve your clients so well that they won’t want to go anywhere else." --- YES

I have been thinking of adding green juices in my diet and this post by +Rachel W Cole reminds us to always be compassionate to ourselves and others. It's true that some people on the green juice trail become overly obsessive and end up passing on judgment on others who are not eating or drinking, in this case, the same as they are. She ends it so nicely with "If you're going to drink a verdant breakfast, drink responsibly."

Paul Arden summed it up nicely: "it's not how good you are, it's how good you want to be". I'm taking up an Intro to Finance course and while most people would give me a crazed look and ask "Why???" I really do like the experience and giving myself room to make mistakes and #learn  without having to prove myself as an expert. Let's have more Get-Better #goals  !

I love this piece! If you're going to read only 1 thing today, let it be this. --- "Identify which source – or sources – of expertise you bring to your current project. Leverage its strengths. Most of all, trust that it is enough – not because it enables you to know everything, but because it enables you to make the contribution you are uniquely qualified to make."
