7 Days. 7 Highlights.
As you roll into this weekend - here's a few stories you want to make sure to check out:
- Do you dabble in communications and marketing at all? If so, this infographic may be of help to you. It covers social media, websites, and emails. (Including the fact that 40% of people will leave your website if it takes longer than 3 seconds to load!) Check it out here.
- Here's a short blog post from Seth Godin on why coercion isn't true leadership.
- You may or may not have known that Mao Zedong banned golf in China in 1949 because it is a "sport for millionaires." With that as historical context, I'll give you one ironic guess as to what one Chinese elementary school now has as a mandatory activity.
- Stephen Curry is kind of a big deal in the NBA right now. And this story of how Nike lost him has plenty of life-lessons in it.
- Hanging out with your friends just make you less happy with life? It might be because you're extremely intelligent.
- This quote on the War on Drugs caught my eye this week: "We knew we couldn't make it illegal to be either against the war or black, but by getting the public to associate the hippies with marijuana and blacks with heroin, and then criminalizing both heavily, we could disrupt those communities." Read the context to this quote here.
- It took me about 4 months, but yesterday I completed the six-part podcast series on World War I by Dan Carlin. It's called Blueprint for Armageddon and it is a part of Dan's podcast Hardcore History. It's intense, but extremely educational. I can't believe how little I knew about the war. You can start listening to the first episode of Blueprint for Armageddon here.
I hope you have a great weekend! (oh, and don't forget to sign up for my email list here.)
Have a great time with family and friends this Easter.
