What I'm Reading When I'm Not Refreshing Twitter

I'm not even going to pretend that I'm ever going to do this again, that I'll ever make this list again, or that this will become a weekly thing. But, for this Sunday, I'm sharing a few things that I've been reading when I'm not mindlessly refreshing Twitter.

"Growing up, we were told by guidance counselors, career advice books, the news media and others to 'follow our passion.' This advice assumes that we all have a pre-existing passion waiting to be discovered.

If we lack this courage, we’ll end up bored and unfulfilled — or, worse, in law school."
Follow a Career Passion? Let it Follow You by Cal Newport

"Those of you who walk around telling everyone how busy you are, get a grip. Make some tough choices and calm down. There’s a big difference between a busy day and a full day."
Don't Tell Me You're Busy by Penelope Trunk

"At 41, she’s the youngest woman to join this year’s Forbes’ World’s Billionaires list without help from a husband or an inheritance. She is part of a tiny, elite club of American women worth ten figures on their own, including Oprah Winfrey and Meg Whitman."

"So write... Not like a girl. Not like a boy. Write like a motherfucker."
by Sugar

And now, I'm off to catch up on episodes of the Daily Show, do a little journal-ing, and write (like a motherfucker). What do you guys do when you're not refreshing Twitter?
