Across the Universe: February 4, 2011Across the Universe — By Sara Sterley on February 4, 2011 at 2:00 pm
I’ve been mostly stuck inside with an eighteen-month-old for the last four days. A vacation to a tropical (adults only) destination has never sounded so good. The upside is that I’ve spent entirely too much time on the internets this week finding some goodies to share:
- The mainstream news coverage of the protests in Egypt has been mostly pathetic. I’ve been keeping up here and here. Check out this post and picture for some goosebumps and perspective.
- How to quit putting things off. I don’t know about the rest of you, but I have a serious procrastination problem. Sounds like I can’t blame my “perfectionist tendencies” any longer!
- I love lists, and, as previously mentioned, I’m terrible about committing to things – like journaling. So I really liked this idea to incorporate a little documenting in your every day life. I definitely need a list of BHAGs, at the very least.
- On locavorism: “Efficiency is a word better suited to machines than to living things, and so often it is the idol of faceless markets that tend to treat meat as if it were a widget, and not a sentinent animal, and soil and energy as though they were bottomless resources.” Hear, hear!
- The Most Interesting Man in the World from the Dos Equis commercials might actually be the most interesting man in the world.
- A recap of this week’s National Prayer Breakfast.
Have a great weekend, Burnsiders…send your links my way for next week’s ATU!
