What I’m Loving this Week: Learning Resources

I am currently overloaded with free learning materials. Thank God for generous people on the internet. Let me share some of the great resources I’ve come across lately:

1) Leadership and Influence Summit – 36 video talks that you can watch for free at your own time (before November 15). The speaker lineup includes Chris Brogan, Jon Acuff, Keith Ferrazzi, Erwin McManus, Mark Sanborn, Tim Elmore, Charlene Li, and a bunch of other great leaders. Some of the topics include The Power of Story, Planning for Success, the Ziglar Way, the E-Myth, Social Nation, Communicate to Lead, Generation iY, etc. Need I go on? Great stuff.

2) Tools and Resources from Generation iY / SaveTheirFutureNow.com – Author Tim Elmore came up with a book that I’ve been wanting to read called Generation iY. Until I get my hands on that book, I’ve been devouring all the informative and useful articles on their website–treasures for a teacher like me. If you’re a parent, educator, youth worker, employer, or anyone who interacts with young people on a regular basis, these resources will come in handy.

3) The Leader as Lifelong Learner, a guest post by Daniel Offer at Michael Hyatt‘s blog – This post reminds me of the entry that I wrote a couple of weeks ago, Do all leaders really have to be readers?In this blog post, Offer offers (I couldn’t resist) a strong argument in favor of reading books. As a book-lover myself, I couldn’t agree more. He gives some great strategies for those who struggle with reading.

Let me know if these resources helped you!

What I’m Loving This Week (Blog-hopping & Extra-special delivery!)

I wanted to share with you some blog posts I enjoyed reading over the past week:

1) Your To-Do List as a Personal Command Center by Michael Hyatt – loved the practical tips. For someone who tends to procrastinate, I could use all the help I can get. Not everything will work for every person, but it’s always nice to pick up some fresh ideas on how to work more effectively.

2) Top Books Every Young Influencer / Leader Should Read by Daniel Decker – More books to add to my wish list! I’ve read some of these and I agree that they’re must-reads. Special mention: Made to Stick by Chip & Dan Heath. Great book.

3) 18 Great Reads that Changed My Life by Marc @ Marc & Angel Hack Life – While I’m not a fan of all his picks, I discovered some great articles through this blog post.

4) This Too Shall Pass by Owl City aka Adam Young – an informative and entertaining piece of writing (I love the ending!) on kidney stones from the guy who brought us the cool and catchy song, “Fireflies“.

and last but not the least:

5) Learnings from my 30’s I wish I would have known in my 20’s by Brad Lomenick – This was a  great post. #1—I can totally relate.

In other news, I’m taking a step of faith and applying to grad school. I’m prone to second-guessing and worrying, but today I felt reassured that my grad school application’s going to get to where it needs to be and I was reminded that my future’s always going to be in good hands. :) Look who received the package and payment for delivery:

Awesome. :)

What I’m Loving This Week (I can’t believe it’s August already!)

Here are some blog posts that I loved this week that I’d like to share with you:

1) Let your love grow” by Holly Furtick – As a single woman, I’ve learned to appreciate every day that God keeps me single, because I know it’s another day that God uses to work on my character and to change my wrong mindsets about love. That’s why I like (and need) to read stuff like this.

2) Honor 101” by Steven Furtick – This one is by Holly Furtick’s husband, Steven Furtick, who’s also a pastor and author (I loved his first book, Sun Stand Still, which just came out recently, so watch out for it!). This post really resonated with me because I know that God has been causing me to remember the word HONOR (the verb, not the noun) this month. I know it is something that I don’t do enough for the people God has placed in my life…but I really should.

3) The Best Leadership Advice a guest post by Lindsey Nobles over at The Catalyst Blog – Lindsey works for leadership guru Michael Hyatt, CEO of Thomas Nelson Publishers. I really look up to both of them, and I can only imagine how awesome it is to work in that company and learn from leaders like Hyatt on a daily basis. Lindsey gave me a peek into that life as she shared a precious and valuable insight that she learned from her leader. It’s another piece that really hit home for me.

4) Plans another guest post by Lindsey Nobles over at The Stubborn Servant – Lindsey just knows how to put into words exactly what I feel and what I need to hear (or read, for that matter). This one is for everyone who gets frustrated when their plans don’t work out.

5) Mila’s Daydreams – I love this creative collection of baby photos. So adorable.

Well, that’s it for now folks! Have a wonderful day! :)
