There are so many links I come across and there is not enough time to write longer posts about all of them. Borrowing an idea from Ben Dowdy and his Misfill feature at The Pen Addict, I have started sharing these links in a blog post with a short description about why each article is interesting for authors.
I going to share just one link this week.
The eight secrets to a (fairly) fulfilled life (The Guardian) – This final column from Oliver Burkeman is lovely. He attempts to collect everything he has learned in a list and like any good list, it is both wise and unexpected. Here are his secrets. I encourage you to clickthrough and read the whole piece.
- There will always be too much to do – and this realisation is liberating.
- When stumped by a life choice, choose “enlargement” over happiness.
- The capacity to tolerate minor discomfort is a superpower.
- The advice you don’t want to hear is usually the advice you need.
- The future will never provide the reassurance you seek from it.
- The solution to imposter syndrome is to see that you are one.
- Selflessness is overrated.
- Know when to move on.
