better next week

This week was a blur. I was pushing projects to a logical hand-off so we can leave for our ski vacation next week with a clear conscience. Done! Well, done-ish.  

In between draft finals and final drafts, here what I was reading and loving this week.  Enjoy and have a great weekend!

Office housework, what?! Don't you love it when someone assembles a couple of words into a phrase that perfectly captures the issue?  That's what Adam Grant and Sheryl Sandberg did for me in this piece in the New York Times.

I'll stop what I'm doing for writing tips anytime, anywhere. Isla McKetta's article on the Moz Blog is just awesome--  bookmark-worthy for reading again and again. I'll admit that it gives me heart palpitations, though.  There is so much to think about and incorporate at once that I decided to pick one or two things for each big report/deliverable and start there. The next one, I'll pick two more and so on. In the meantime, I'll keep my favorite editor on speed dial (hey, remember when that was a thing?!)

Ok, I'm a big, sappy nerd.  I watched this twice in a row. Maybe because the National Park Service is my favorite client, maybe because I got engaged in a national park nine years ago this weekend, or maybe because I've sworn off chocolate (temporarily) and it's making me emotional. Whatever the reason, this video is just so sweet.
