Yesterday was “back to school” day for both my daughter — entering year one at the local primary — and myself. I’ve worked very little over August, as I’ve picked up the majority of the summer holidays childcare. So, I get my own “back to work” feeling, and I’m busy catching up. And one of the things I’m catching up on is this e-mail.
For those who are new here, Commonplace Reading is a irregular digest of interesting things I’ve found on the internet – these are the ideas that are informing my thinking right now. It’s basically a recommended reading digest, with some commentary, a bit like an old-fashioned link blog, but delivered via e-mail.
I’m hoping to get back on a weekly schedule – and if I do, you’ll see an evolution of the newsletter. I’m trying to restructure the way I work so I write more in the mornings, and read and do admin in the afternoons and evenings, and that seems to be making me more productive.
Amazing how a little perspective — a month of minimal work — can give you insights into what you’re doing wrong.
Anyway, on with the linkage.
