It’s been awhile since I did a Sunday Snippets link dump!
- I respect a lot of what Michael Hyatt has to say, and I liked this post comparing life to a symphony orchestra with all of the parts playing together.
I often think life is like a symphony orchestra. Like an orchestra, our lives are divided into different parts or areas, each with their own focus. Where an orchestra has strings, brass, woodwinds, and percussion, our lives have work, family, faith, fitness, and so on.
I have friends that are starting to have kids, and obviously I want to give them a book as a baby present. But which one(s) to buy?! Here’s a fun list from Book Riot.
I was feeling extremely scattered last week, and one morning when I knew I didn’t have anything immediately pressing, I sat down at the coffee shop in my building instead of at my desk and spent two hours just organizing my emails. And you know what? Even though I hadn’t accomplished anything, per se, I felt much less scattered and much more able to focus on more productive things. It’s advisable to give yourself a catch-up day.!
All the things that would normally be squeezed out by larger, more important tasks get their own special day (or maybe part of a day), so that I don’t have items forever piling up and stressing me out on my to-do list.
- This gif of a dog “swimming” is really cute. And summery. Atlanta Public School start back tomorrow and I feel this slight panic that summer is over and somehow I haven’t done enough summery things! But let’s be real, it’ll still be hot in Georgia for months.
A cute bookish mini-quilt that, let’s be honest, I know I’ll never be enough of a sewer to make.
This is technically a link, but what I’m really saying by posting it is that you should go read this book. Seriously. I read it in under 24 hours. I didn’t love Rowell’s first book, Eleanor and Park, but I liked it, and I’m definitely in her target demographic, so when I spotted this one for $1.99 as a Kindle e-book I snagged it. This is the best book I’ve read in recent memory. It was cute and juuust unbelievable enough so as to be utterly charming.
