Links to Success: Week of 16th December 2007

Don’t ask yourself what the world needs; ask yourself what makes you come alive. Come alive with the always inspirational Wake Up Tiger. Rawr!

The most productive people are the ones with the least on their minds. Catch this introductory video to GTD by founder David Allen on Lifehacker.

It’s wonderful to be grateful and recognize the blessings in your life. But it’s a whole other level when you take action on that gratitude and go out of your way to say, “Thanks. You were an important part of my year. You matter to me.” This holiday season learn how to give the gift of appreciation from Christine Kane.

We really do get to choose how we define ourselves and how to get there. How you define your personal identity can give you tremendous power or rob you of it. Liz Strauss asks who are you really?

This season, we will do our part. I love Naomi’s Taking Back the Season Manifesto. Want to change the world while buying your Christmas gifts this year?

What is the one goal, if completed, that could change everything? Tim Ferriss asks us to let the small bad things happen and make the big good things happen. Check out his lifestyle experiment in the art of letting bad things happen (and weapons of mass distraction).

What do you do if you have a dream, but everyone around you keeps telling you to be more realistic and to give up the dream? You ignore them. Zen Habits shows us how to doggedly pursue your dreams in the face of naysayers.

Finally, I love this SEED conference sketch-note by Mike Rohde.

  1. I agree that a key to self management is self esteem. I would offer that true life inspiration happens when you find something you love to do and make it a part of your everyday experience. Here’s an exercise:

    1. Write down 10 things you love to do or that bring you the most joy. I call this the “You List”

    2. Then record how many times a day you do one of the things on your list

    3. Give each day of the week a rating from 1-10

    4. Your best day usually comes out to be the day you do the most things on your “You List”

    I can easily relate to the first part of the story, in the past I was one of those people pretending you have done something and then be very uncomfortable when someone asks more detailed questions.
    It is not a good feeling and being upfront from the beginning really saves you the embarassment later.
