Round up for week ending 30th May 08

Thursday May 29th, 2008 by fathersez

Hello. The week is coming to an end…for me anyway. There is still the full reader box to clear. In the meantime:

Posts I found interesting from those I managed to read include: 

The Glbl guy reminds us that we should surround ourselves with constant reminders of our goals.  These reminders are a tool to help us stay focused and stay on the path to reaching our goals and dreams a little sooner. I am a total believer of this theory. I have reminders on my laptop screen and my handphone, not forgetting my daily lists.  

And Ririan from Romania gives his suggestions on how to create effective to-do lists. 

Feeling ripped off (even if the feeling is misplaced) in anyway is painful and not pleasant at all. I hate it even more when I feel that the vendor is devious.  I signed up to purchase an E book on goats, (goes to show how powerful sales letters can be, as I am sure most if not all of the material in the book probably came from the free pamphlets distributed by our Department of Veterinary Services.) Anyway, I felt pissed, when I was asked to submit too much personal particulars AFTER payment was made. 

It looks like I am not alone. Read about what made Naomi feeling pissed. 

I enjoyed this post about how to fly the national flag. Our politicians started a program a few years ago to instil some patriotism and everyone was encouraged to fly flags. We had cars, buses and lorries flying flags. Needless to say, after a while you could see quite a number of really dirty looking soot / smoke encrusted and even torn flags flying all over the place.

I used to feel ashamed and often wondered how a foreigner would have judged us. Our TV stations should have carried Brett and Kate’s post repeatedly.     

I also thoroughly enjoyed this post comparing bloggers with pawns on a chess board. I think these observations will work in a lot of other situations too.  

Who can resist not reading a post with a title that goes…..”The most important piece of career advice you probably never heard”? The title turned out to be true, I had never heard this piece of advice before. And you know what, it does make a lot of sense.   

I participated in the Carnival of Family Life which was hosted as a Memorial Day Carnival by one of my favourite family sites, Colloquium!. (I must learn to spell this word correctly, since I am going to use it often.) 

Well, that’s all for the week, people. Go on and have a great, productive and jolly happy weekend.

This is my first time here, nice blog, the to-do-list is useful, I would like to share with you that I am currently using an online to-do-list called - Todoist. It’s a hierarchy type of to do list. I find very useful. :)
