Great things (Seth Godin): I spent a large part of my life admiring great things and great works. Astonished by the contributions of civil rights leaders, engineers, scientists and politicians of great note who have allowed humanity soar, I don't see myself in their company because my life has largely been striving to secure a good job, a good education and a future for my family. It hasn't been outward, like the greats. But I like Seth Godin's anthem here - make great things, whatever that means for you, make it great.
Stone fruit blender cake (My Name is Yeh): Molly Yeh just makes excellent food and this is a great way to jig your frozen summer fruits into a delightful dessert. I bet you could get away with eyeballing all of the measurements in this recipe too, which is the best.
One free paragraph to replace thousands of books and a billion dollar self-help industry (Leo Babuta): It's quite simple really.
I sometimes wash my legs (Jezebel): But isn't it just a trickle down effect from the rest of the shower? I stand firmly in support of Gretchen, as do 29% of people who took the poll Jezebel is very scientifically running.
Have a lovely week.
