I would write a new post, but I am still making do on the childcare front. It is naptime and I have a long list of things that must happen before I hear “ma-ma” over the monitor. At least my 3 big kids had school today (if two hours delayed for the boys). All told, I had a grand total of 1 hour and 20 minutes with just one child before we had to get the 4-year-old. We went to the grocery store. Go us. Too bad the place looked like something out of the Soviet rationing era.
Anyway, here are a few links to recent stories:
Mark Zuckerberg, Parent-in-Chief. Over at Fortune, I am writing about how the Facebook CEO is changing the conversation on working parenthood.
I also write about Deep Work, the new book from Cal Newport. Is it possible to focus on your work and ditch the distractions in the corporate world?
Here is my piece on How To Invest $1000 In Yourself in 2016.
At Fast Company, I am writing about How To Combine Networking And Playdates.
I am also writing about taking your kid on a business trip. If you go for it, stay for a Saturday and find a hotel with a pool. Not all business hotels have them, and if they do, the pool might be attached to a high end spa that does not welcome children. Total fail.
