This morning I realized that I had to change my routine in order to adhere to our collective challenge. Typically I wake up, get coffee, and go online to review various news sites. I found myself a little stuck on what to actually do instead. I decided to check out a few blogs instead, drink that coffee, then go read a few books.
In case you are looking for a few suggestions of what to do instead of the news, I am offering a few suggestions.
http://wordpress.com/#!/topics/ This is the topic section of WordPress and you can find some great blogs by clicking on the topic.
http://talinorfali.wordpress.com/ A writer from Canada who somehow found my blog. Her tagline says it all.
http://sethgodin.typepad.com/ Seth Godin’s blog. Some great stuff in here.
As for the books, I have a habit of reading more than one book at a time. In the current queue are Tribes, by Seth Godin, Magnificent Mind at Any Age, by Dr. Daniel Amen, and IMC – The Next Generation by Don and Heidi Schultz. The first two are for pleasure, the last is for a class I am taking.
I hope this helps, I had to take down the news sites from my Chrome home page, but I am feeling better already. One thing I realized was the more I read about crime in my own community, the more my opinion of where I live became negative.
Thanks for participating. I am looking forward to how this 30 days plays out. You can do it, and 2012 will be great!
