Software Engineering, Project Management, and Effectiveness
Sources of Insight is ready for action. It's my blog focused on proven practices for personal effectiveness for work and life. I started it a while back to help you sharpen your skills and to grow your personal capabilities.
The big idea is to help people "stand on the shoulders of giants", drawing from great books, great people, and great quotes.
The big change is the user experience. I upgraded the theme to a modern and responsive design, so now you should be able to read it more easily, even from your phone. The other big change is that it's easier to explore the knowledge base more easily. With the new menu, I got the chance to better surface key topics for you, such as Emotional Intelligence, Personal Effectiveness, Leadership, Personal Development, and Productivity. It's also easier to dive right into the articles or browse by key topics. It's also easier to explore key resources like Checklists or How Tos.
Great Books, Great People, and Great Quotes are also front and center. With Great Books, you can easily browse the best business books, the best leadership books, or the best time management books. With Great People, you can browse lessons learned from Tony Robbins, John Wooden, Stephen Covey, and more. With Great Quotes, you can browse timeless wisdom from folks like Confucius, Buddha, Gandhi, and more.
It’s life wisdom at your fingertips.
Sources of Insight is meant to be a "Garden of Greatness" where you can find specific tools and techniques to help you get the edge in work and life. It also features guest posts from best-selling authors and experts from around the world, who share what they do best.
It’s a work in progress. Your feedback is always welcome to help shape it to something more useful, relevant, insightful, and actionable. I’ll be focusing on sharing a lot more principles, patterns, and practices for key topics in the near future.
The simplest way to get the updates from Sources of Insight is to subscribe -- either subscribe by RSS or subscribe by email.
I’ll add more social features in the future, meanwhile, I’m still exploring the best ways to create an effective platform that’s simple and scales. It’s up to 210,000 monthly readers now, so I’m trying to focus on slow growth, with a strong platform.
While the overall site is focused on personal effectiveness, and especially topics like emotional intelligence, personal development, leadership, and productivity, be sure to let me know if there are scenarios or topics, you’d like me to address.
Looks great JD, great change!
Your blog is one of the jewels of my internet :)

@ Ricardo -- Thank you!
