I’ve really been pushing myself to read more in the past month. As work and other projects have gotten more time consuming I definitely let my bookshelf start to get dusty.
I was hoping my first post this month wouldn’t come after such a long, tough and divisive week. But I don’t think we’ve ever needed to sit down together and share some coffee, links and laughs more.
This week was a good one. I set a few goals to do some things more consistently that I’d let slip from my routine lately. Bringing lunch to work instead of buying out. Cutting takeout in general in an effort to be a little more mindful about my savings.
Adulting, it never ends.
I first found The Atlantic’s piece on #FirstSevenJobs when reading Meg’s overview of her own first seven. It didn’t take long for me to do a deep dive into the hashtag on Twitter. I mean seriously deep.
Because it’s interesting to me how non-linear so many of our paths are, and I think we often overlook this. No one recalls that the CEO of the hottest new startup once bussed tables at a local pub or that the powerful boss demanding the boardroom used to refold sweaters at GAP. It fascinates me.
Success and career are no straight shot, friends.
