Happy TGIF to all! It’s been a bleary couple of days here in Connecticut, so I’m looking forward to some sun on my upcoming week-long trip starting Sunday (I may be a bit late on the Sunday Papers as a result). I’m also looking forward to meeting Phil Gerbyshak on Monday to soak up more of his endless reservoir of positivity. Here are my Friday “Shout Outs” to close out an eventful week.
- Trevor Gay is one prolific fellow, and a heck of a good person to boot. He’s got another book out that I’m really looking forward to read, “The Nine Fruits of Leadership”. I was honored to get a sneak peek at some of the content, and it’s a unique look at leadership from the so called “soft” side, which Trevor correctly surmises is the road less traveled. Check it out!
- Speaking of Trevor once again (oh, and he’s getting married in October too; good on you Trevor!), he’s also teaming up with two of his friends Felix Gerena from Spain and Roger (Rocky) Noe from Kentucky to promote their “Three Amigo Workshops”, a “workshop about how three people from different continents and separated by thousands of miles, and who have never met, can collaborate ‘virtually’ to plan, write and publish a number of books.” So, if you are trying to figure out how to kick start a writing, publishing and collaborating career, this would be a good place to start.
- Terrence Seamon over at “Here We Are. Now What” (I still love that title!) had a great take on one of Rosa Say’s recent posts on Rules and Creativity, and uses a great example to illustrate that while no rules is usually a good thing, there may be occasions where rules actually can help creativity. Thoughtful stuff, as usual, from Terrence.
- I need to acknowledge a couple of milestones this week – John at Bizhack made it into the top 25,000 at Technorati (believe me, that isn’t easy; there are 50 million blogs out there), and Lisa at Management Craft celebrated the 2nd anniversary of her blog’s beginning . My congratulations to the both of you and “keep on keepin’ on”!
- Rosemary over at Daily Planit presented her list of the “Top 10 Personal Development Sites”, and while it had some familiar names, there were some new ones I need to check out – I’m linking to it so you can explore this list too.
Have a great weekend!
