There is a lot of content that I consume each week on topics such as design, web strategy, SEO, and productivity. Some of it is posted to my various social media channels such as LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook and Google+. A few of those posts stand out more than the others. Here are some of last weeks favorites.

I hate how I write. If I get rushed I can barely read it, it’s like a chimp wrote with a crayon. I partially blame it on being left-handed. I realized when I took calligraphy that pushing a pen, as left-handers do, as opposed to pulling a pen, as right-handers do, makes for a messy letter. That said, I do prefer to take notes with a pen and paper over my iPad or laptop. Because of this, the story “Why Productive People Take Better Notes” stood out this past week.

If you are looking for a new job, new clients or just connect with people in your field then you really should be on LinkedIn. You should also be using it to it’s fullest. Here is some good advice in an infographic format on “Mastering LinkedIn – 33 LinkedIn Tips for Businesses.”

Who doesn’t love a story that starts out “Smarter in 7 Minutes: Ultimate Business Wisdom from 3 Decades of Bestselling Books.” I have found business books to be a great resource but its tough to pick one up when you have a good novel sitting right next to it. Who has the time? I do have 7 minutes.
