The End Of Wall StreetI read a great book abstract at Getabstract on The End of Wall Street. Although it seems obvious - selling houses to people with no credit, no assets, no jobs was a recipe for disaster. I wonder if the American dream of home ownership for all and the government encouragement by mortgage deductability is sustainable.
There is an interesting blog post emailed to me by a friend on Michael Hyatt's Blog on using batching for time management. I have previously blogged about the Pomodoro Time Management system and use that technique myself almost daily. The blog post reinforces the "why" of using that system.
This ties into a great HBR article emailed from another friend on "This Space intentionally left Blank". The gist of it is - creativity, productivity and success happens if there is some space left in the schedule.
