7 Stupid Thinking Errors You Probably Make – A popular article I did for lifehack, as part of my new favorite subject of cognitive biases and heuristics.

5 Signs You Are On Autopilot – Peter sent me this article and I’m glad I read it. I particularly like his comment about leaving school and deciding you don’t want to come back. His stance: “In my opinion, if someone returns home after travel and is not compelled to finish their study, it is a fairly good sign that it does not reflect their calling.” Good point.

Haiku Productivity from ZenHabits – Another fantastic post from Leo. “The key to Haiku Productivity is to limit yourself to an arbitrary but small number of things, forcing yourself to focus on the important stuff and eliminate all else.”

Purple Cow – Basically all Seth Godin’s books are worth a read. He has great ideas, and they apply to more than just business. This one centers around the need to be remarkable, instead of just good.

  4. […] Thanks to Scott H Young who featured 5 Signs You Are On Autopilot in his Friday Links. Also, congratulations to Bryan C. Fleming for making it to the 50th Edition of his Personal Growth Carnival (which features one of my articles). And finally, thank you to all my new subscribers! I can’t believe how quickly this little site of mine is growing. […]

Debate is fine, flaming is not. Pretend that this comment form is a discussion taking place in my house. That means I enjoy constructive criticism and polite suggestions. Personal attacks, insults and all-purpose nastiness will be removed especially if it is directed at other readers.
