sunriseI’m a little late in posting today’s weekly roundup, because I just got back from an almost-2-mile walk with two of our dogs (and wondering whether handling a combined 115 lbs at the end of two leashes improves the quality of the walk…?).

So when I started combing through my Reader for good stuff to share with you, the very first post I read was perfect, and I borrowed its title for this post’s title as well.

1. Begin anywhere, by Valeria Maltoni.

Why: I’m a huge fan of Valeria’s and she is absolutely right. When you start something – anything, whether it’s a wellness program, or work with a new client, you have to begin somewhere. Anywhere.

2. 41 steps to significantly improve a blog in less than a month, by Brankica Underwood.

Why: talk about beginning anywhere!

3. If you wait for all the lights to turn green, you’ll never leave the house, by Mary Barber.

Why: you can tell by the title of the post, right?

4. Friday fun, by Jen Zingsheim.

Why: Jen is obsessed with writer confusion over homophones. However, she is apparently now moving on from tearing her hare hair out at seeing so many of them, to being impressed. Me, I suggest you “begin anywhere” with both a dictionary and a thesaurus.

5. A message for the overzealous entrepreneur, by John Falchetto.

Why: taking time off to recharge is important. John rides his mountain bike (and took a nasty tumble at the end of this particular ride, so I hope he heals quickly). Again… you can begin anywhere, it doesn’t have to be over a weekend, or in the evening, or whatever. Just do it.

6. A PR time capsule can take you back to the future, by Kevin Dugan.

Why: I love this line: “Think vs. just do.”

7. Cat scan. A {growtoon}, by Joey Strawn for {grow}.

Why: it’s hilarious! By the way, this is not what we mean by “begin anywhere.”

Have a good Sunday!
