Weekend Reading

This is the first Saturday morning post of a few links that I found interesting during the week.  I hope that you find them interesting as well.

Flickr Comments has some great pictures of dogs in his post, Dogs Are Smarter Than You Think.  There’s also a link to the Brainpickings site (a wonderful site if you’ve never been there) reviewing the book, The Genius of Dogs. How much do you learn from your relationship with dogs?

The Rise of the Artist is an interesting read regarding the future of leadership.  The author believes that right-brained, creative people, will be the leaders of the future.  I’d argue that whole-brained thinkers are best suited for leadership.

The Predawn Runner has a great post on goals vs. purpose, highlighting how runners can often become their own worst enemies in achieving their purpose.  Even if you’re not a runner, it’s a good read on the relationship between goals and purpose.

On the site Letters of Note, the 1980 letter sent to Francis Ford Coppola by a school librarian requesting that S.E. Hinton’s book, The Outsiders, be adapted for film and the series of letters that resulted are available for review.  This inspirational post demonstrates that we all have a voice and that we need to speak up – sometimes we get, or can make happen, what we want.

Did something above spark an interest or thought? If so, I’d love to hear from you.

Have a great weekend!
