Sunday Linkday! A million is not cool

Can you guess how the Encyclopedia Britannica has been repurposed?
As a beer list!

In Sunday Linkday!, I share a snapshot from my week and a round-up of my favorite posts.

You know, it’s just possible that this new weekend tradition will shame me into posting more frequently. I don’t like that there’s just one post in between this and the last Sunday Linkday, even though it’s an important one.

I am already loving this process. When I started, I wasn’t reading other people’s online works with much frequency, and I was despairing to find original perspectives. It turns out, I just wasn’t looking hard enough.

James Altucher is one of my favorite bloggers. I love this piece: The Spanx Woman is Worth A Billion!? My Key Takeaways, and this is the best part:

…And now Sara Blakely, the founder of Spanx is worth a billion according to Forbes. She took Justin Timberlake’s advice. A million is not cool. A billion is cool.

In the past 24 hours I’ve heard three different guys say something to the affect of, “She? She is worth a billion? Huh. I guess anyone can be worth a billion.” As soon as someone says that they are scratched off my list of people I want to spend time with. I only like to be around positive people who celebrate success.

Speaking of start-ups, this post on the lessons from Pinterest’s success is a fresh perspective on the prevailing trend of build fast/fail fast. Ben Silbermann keynoted at ALT, and he somehow exuded confidence, humor and humility all at once. I’ve been watching him intently since I got back.

At last year’s World Domination Summit, Leo Babauta and I spoke about ungoaling, the 7 Habits and a bunch of other things we have in common. He just wrote a great post on embracing chaos as a life hack. This happens to be how I run my life.

My friend Monica is traveling in Southeast Asia for 2 months. She wrote an eloquent post on what it means to witness a culture different from your own (as opposed to being a tourist).

This is just beautiful.

And this is important.

Lastly, a few shout-outs.

  • First, to my friend and yoga teacher Marianne Elliott for launching her book with total poise in a 6 minute segment! on New Zealand’s Good Morning.
