Pimp Your Work - Improving Your Work Day Efficiency

Best Blog Articles - November 26, 2020

by Scot Herrick on November 26th, 2006

We love to read as well as write here at PYW. Often, we write about what other people are saying and extend the conversation. Other times we just wish we wrote the article in the first place and can do nothing but provide great kudos to our fellow business bloggers.

We’re handing out kudos here.

Every week, I’ll try and give you a good selection of what I consider to be the best blog articles I’ve read during the week - and if you have seen others, please put them into the comments so they can be shared with other readers here at PYW.

So ease yourself back into the work week by checking out great ideas and writing from people I admire out here in the blogosphere.

Here are this week’s selections:

Joe Bruzzese writes about preconceived ideas and missed opportunities over at Thinking Forward. He shares his conversation with his daughter about not making an egg sandwich thinking there were no eggs. But there were and he then relates how he missed the eggs to how we miss opportunities. We’re out of eggs is an opportunity you won’t want to miss.

We’re gadget freaks here on Pimp Your Work. Marc Orchant over Office Evolution shares what’s in his bag of tricks. It’s a pretty good list! I want one of those Nokia 770 Internet Tablets

The Seattle Traveler shows a great shot of SeaTac airport’s new Pacific Marketplace. In the United States, the Thanksgiving holiday weekend is the busiest travel time of the year. If you have to be in an airport with a place to lounge around, the marketplace is a good place to be. I’ve spent my share of time there.

Are any of you participating in the “NowNow” beta from Amazon? Genuine Curiosity gives us a look at NowNow where you e-mail in your question to an address and get a response back. Real people research, real people answer.

Finally, the Career Intensity Blog offers up the quote of the week from James A. Froude: “You cannot dream yourself into a character; you must hammer and forge yourself one.”

Enjoy your week.

    I’ve spent way more than my share of time in the marketplace as well. It’s such a big improvement to what was there before, though, and it makes it as pleasant as hanging out in an airport can be.
