Friday links and cover art

9781101620298_WhattheMostS_ES_300I am racing to finish up before 5 p.m., so here are a few quick links:

Forbes looks at 14 Things Successful People Do on Weekends.

Haley Mlotek writes on Confessions of a Self-Help Addict for Hazlitt, Random House of Canada’s ‘zine.

I’m speaking to the Connecticut Society of Professional Journalists at the Fairfield library (on Old Post Road) on Saturday at 2 p.m. If you’re in the neighborhood, it’s free and open to the public.

I’m excited about Sheryl Sandberg’s soon-to-be-released book, Lean In. Look for more on that soon.

Over at CBS MoneyWatch, I wrote about The most important hour you’ll spend today. I also wrote that No, it isn’t faster to do it yourself. I finished up the week with a tale of How to run a company (in your spare time) on parent social network weeSpring.

Finally, check out the What the Most Successful People Do at Work cover, which is the art accompanying this post. The ebook (the last in the trilogy) will be out in April.

    Changing the topic, I want to make sure you saw the recent news that Yahoo! is requiring all of its employees to work from an office, starting in June. I note that you often extol the virtues of working from home, and I agree that it can often work in many circumstances. However, not all work places are receptive such arrangements. I recently tried to formalize such an arrangement for one day per week(with the support of those I worked with on a day-to-day basis) and was resoundly denied. It doesn’t make much sense considering I work with people globally (i.e., I don’t see them) and often don’t see my own colleagues in the office.

      @WG – I know, I saw this. Very disappointed in Mayer. Too bad that the youngest female Fortune 500 CEO turns out to have a mindset of 1955.
