Read This then That

Two interesting articles I read recently.

First this one from Daniel Pink.: How to Make a New Year's non-Resolution

I'll let you read the article because it's short and he explains it way better than I can.  The idea that stuck with me is to remind yourself that the action you do today is what you are going to do everyday.  It is funny that I read it on a day when I had a candy bar and that is one of the examples he gave.  Tonight I was late leaving school and then I had to go to the tailor to pick up my clothing.  I was on the edge of making an excuse about not walking, but then I decided to walk around the shopping center for a little while.  Because I didn't want to make an excuse the next day and the next day and the next day.  It was just a 10 minute stroll, but I'm so glad I did it.

Second is this post from Gizmodo on the new social networking app, Path: The Social Network That Stole Christmas.  It is not short but you should read it anyway.  The problem for me is that I have very few people that I consider true, intimate friends and even fewer of those are social media junkies like I am.  I live vicariously through other people on Twitter and I will always love Twitter for that, but I like the intimacy of Path.  I think it has great potential.
