When Tuesday Feels Like Monday

I’m back at work today after a week off, which makes today feel like a Monday even though it’s not. I’m feeling a bit unorganized with my life, like there’s a handful of things I want to do, but I can’t seem to get to them because of the clutter. Hopefully I can successfully sift through everything in these next couple of weeks and come out on the other side with some clear priorities and motivation to keep things moving. In the meantime, here’s a few things of interest…

+ Agent Rachelle Gardner just helped one of her authors sign her first two-book deal, and had her share some of the things she’s learned. I liked this one: “I didn’t know how much power sales reps had. (Seems like they pretty much rule the roost these days.)” because, from what I was told, it was a sales rep who had the final say in a potential book deal with my last proposal, and it was that sales rep who ultimately killed the deal. (and in the end, i think it will turn out to be a good thing)

+ Donald Miller is endorsing The Mentoring Project.

+ Author Jim Palmer writes often about the process of “shedding religion” in search of spiritual truth. Though I feel like I’m in a different place than he is on my spiritual journey, I enjoyed his thoughts here.

+ i put up a couple pictures from our weekend in MA on the family blog. They’re here if you’re interested
