I’m out pounding the pavement again this morning for my second half-marathon this spring.  And guess what.  It’s supposed to rain again.  Boo!  But while I’m out losing a toenail and getting hypothermia, I hope you’re somewhere cozy and dry, and enjoying these great reads!

    Thank you Amanda,
    Your link to Rick Ackerly led me to his post
    ‘How to Get Children to Behave? Be a Leader’
    and the TED talk in it ‘Itay Talgam: Lead like the great conductors’
    Such a refreshing insight on parenting/leadership.

  3. So chuffed to be included in your weekly link list. I always pop over to see what gems you have discovered and I am never disappointed! :)
