Link Karma – 15 July 2007

Link Karma is a section of The Positivity Blog where I list some good reading I´ve stumbled upon during the last few days (or weeks, depending on how much browsing and reading I do).

I hope you enjoy this batch of articles and find something helpful!

- Feeling Unfulfilled? 37 Tips to Enjoy Work More – A good list from Positivityblog-reader Rich McIver. My favourites among the tips are: 7. Stay away from Negative Ned, 13. Prioritize and 1. Think positively.

- What Buddha Did Not Teach – A table that clarifies the wrong (complicated) and right (simple) view of Buddha’s teachings. A very interesting read.

- Stumbleupon led me to two other nice summaries. One is of How to Win Friends and Influence People. It might be the most well-spent 14 minutes of your day.

- The other summary is of David Greene’s 48 Laws of Power, a sort of darkside alternative to How to Win Friends and Influence People. A fascinating book, with lot of great examples of the laws put to use by influential people throughout the last few thousand years.

- I´d also like to highlight two posts from Leo Babauta of zenhabits-fame and who seems to be everywhere these days. Since I like eating slowly I enjoyed 5 Powerful Reasons to Eat Slower. And since I like to improve my writing I´ve found great value in 7 Ways to Crank Out Articles. If you are a blogger/writer I highly recommend taking Leo´s advice in that article and downloading DarkRoom – or a variation of it – to improve your crankingpower.

    That’s some high quality link karma, Henrik. I really like the DarkRoom idea myself. It should really help to keep those distractions to a minimum.

    Robert Greene, the author of the 48 Laws of Power, also has an excellent blog at http://www.powerseductionandwar.com

    He doesn’t post often, but when he does he writes dense, provocative, intelligent articles on life and strategy. Check out the archives and you’ll see.

    Lyman: Thanks. DarkRoom is great when you just want to crank out a first draft of an article without feeling the need to check your email, RSS etc. 10 times while writing.

    Chris: Thank you for the tip, Chris. I read Greene´s blog for while about six months ago but then I just somehow forgot about it. Some interesting and provocative stuff there, as you say. Time to revisit.

    Firstly what an awesome name you have ” The positivity blog”

    Hi Henrik,

    I just thought I’d post a follow up comment… DarkRoom *does* rock! I try a lot of stuff, and reject a lot as well, but this one’s a keeper. Thanks again for pointing me to it.
