Sources of Insight is 10 Months Old

  • Comments 0

My other little blog is growing up so fast ... Sources of insight is 10 months old.   I originally started it to improve my blogging skills as well as to put more focus on personal development.  I mentor a lot at work, so I used Sources of Insight as a channel to share patterns and practices for improving effectiveness.  I named it Sources of Insight because I draw from books, people, and quotes, as well as other sources (such as movies.)  It also reflects a lot of my learning on the job and experience from the school of hard knocks.  I try to keep the tone less technical so more people can enjoy it, while still providing deep insights.

I've learned a lot along the way.  The biggest lesson I've learned is that working on a blog is working on your life.  It's like getting up to bat and each post is a chance to hit the ball out of the park, or maybe get a single or double, or maybe just strike out.  There's a definite ebb and flow to it, just like life.  I think that's what I like about it.

If you stop by Sources of Insight, be sure to say, "hi."  Tell me what you like, don't like or want more of.  The key goal on Sources of Insight is to share the best patterns and practices for personal development.   If you don't know where to start, I recommend starting with the About, then You 2.0, and then Living Your Process.   If you need a boost of motivation, cherry pick your favorites from my list of Motivation Quotes.   If you want to fill your quiver with some of the best techniques for getting results, then be sure to read Rituals for Results.   It's a fast tour of some sure-fire ways to improve your results.
