If you’re anything like me, you come across a few reads each week that you have to file away in the “Must Read Later” pile. These days, I’m a pro with using Evernote‘s Google Chrome extension to clip articles and pick them back up when I’m not as busy in the 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. (or 5 a.m. to 10 p.m.) timeframe. (By the way, if you haven’t used Evernote, I highly recommend it. Mashable has some great tutorials.)
Here are some of the blogs, articles and otherwise intriguing thoughts that caught my eye this week:
- Understanding How to Frame your Creative Expertise by Tara Mohr on 99U
- Opinion: Communication Crisis in Research by David Rubenson in The Scientist Magazine (It made me take a nice long look at how we truly convey complex scientific information – both in peer-review journals and for public consumption.)
- What if You Could Truly Be Yourself at Work? by Tony Schwartz on the Harvard Business Review blog (My friend Nicollete Pizzitola (@nicpiz) and I have had this running conversation for a few years now. Key lesson: just show up and be yourself!)
- At Davos, Investing in Women Emerges as a Business Strategy by Melanee Verveer in The Daily Beast
- On Behalf of Yes by Seth Godin (Seth, thank you for the Bravehart-like pep-talk!)
Until next week, have a great one and make it count! Also, I’ll be working a lot on cleaning things up around here, so stay tuned for more information.
