Web Time Wasters

What’d you get up to this week, friends? Besides losing your mind over current events? I had lunch dates, got ready to open the live version of Make It Stick Habit School (!!!), and now I’m taking a three-day weekend at a cabin in Wisconsin for a friend’s birthday. Hiking! Kayaking! Reading by the fire!

Links for you!

Limp, desperate, they fantasize about quitting their good jobs and moving home to Michigan. They murmur about purpose, about the concrete satisfactions of baking a loaf of bread or watching a garden grow. One young woman I know dreams about leaving her consulting job, which takes her to Dubai and Prague, to move back home and raise a bunch of kids. Another, an accountant with corner-office aspirations, has decided to “phone it in” for a few years while she figures out what she wants to do.

Hope you’re taking care of yourself this weekend, friends. <3



I love that example of a “call out” – assertive, kind, open, curious. No posturing or seeking to shame. Good for her – that’s the way to effect change! – and good for you linking to it.
