  • 22 Killer Personal Development Resources You’re Missing Out On – You’ve got the personal development itch once again.

    You know the feeling.  Maybe you want to be more productive, finally tackle that goal of yours, or start waking up earlier.

    So you go to Google or your favorite personal development blogs. Maybe if you still haven’t found what you’re looking for you try searching for a Youtube video or ask your Facebook friends if they know of any good sites.

    And that’s it.  You’ve exhausted your resources and don’t know where else to look.

    Sometimes you find what you need, but you still have a sense that there’s got to be more.  That you don’t know – what you don’t know.

    And that’s where you get stuck.  Wanting more, but just not knowing where to find it.

    Today I hope to change that by sharing with you 22 of the killer personal development resources you’re missing out on.

  • Maple Cream Tart – an article from Food52 – I'm sure you don't need another Thanksgiving dessert recipe to add to your list, and yet I must contribute just one more. This one, this maple cream tart, will go toe to toe with your pumpkin pie, and put any other dessert on the canvas.

    It's the Tom Wolfe of tarts, nattily dressed in a single color. Its maple cream is gently sweet and as serene as its dune palette. The tart has a press-in crust (ideal for the holidays when counter space is at a premium) and a filling that can be whisked together in 2 minutes.

    Make it the day before. Chill it in the fridge. Embrace its serenity.
