Okay, confession time. I am about 5/6 of the way through Jane Mayer’s book Dark Money and that, combined with my never-ending newsfeed of doom, has shoved me into a black little hole this week that just gets deeper with every refresh (note to self – stop refreshing the feed). The kind of funk where the only fleeting moment of relief came the other night when I allowed myself to imagine, with joy, what the world would be like if Facebook no longer existed (more on that in my next blog post). Yes, it has been a rough one in my head. And I don’t really want to pass that on to anyone. So, I won’t be sharing most of what I read this week.
However, I will share with you an article that I read awhile back that should have been included in last week’s post because it ties in nicely with our addiction to technology and the attention overwhelm that we are trapped in (and that apparently has become a new obsession of mine). Craig Mod did what many of us say we want to do – he actually took a real break from social media and mobile devices. This is what he learned from the experience.
Because laughing is good, always, here’s a humorous post from copywriter Neville Medhora explaining the step-by-step process to becoming a Life Coach, including: Step 3. Talk about “fear” alllll the time, and Step 5. Abundantly talk about “abundance”, plus lots of good stuff in the comment section.
Bonus – this is one of his email sign up forms (copywriters always have the best email sign ups). And yes, it got me to sign up:
And that is all I have for now. Le weekend is finally here, alors on danse!
