My Top 5 Podcasts of the Week

My Top 5 Podcasts of the WeekIn addition to reading books and blog posts, one of my favorite ways to get smarter is listening to podcasts. I will normally listen to podcasts while out for walks or while commuting to and from work. My listening tastes keep changing based on my needs. Presently, a number of the podcasts I listen to focus on productivity, social media, and some are for fun. While most of the podcasts are great, there are some podcast episodes that really resonate with me. I want to share those with you.

My Favorites of the Week

Darren Rowse, an extremely successful blogger, takes a look at the new year and also talks about goals. However, he puts a twist on his challenge to listeners. Rather than create a goal that focuses on self-development, he wants us to develop goals that will help others become more successful. I really appreciated this sentiment. As I look around, far too many people are only concerned with themselves not realizing that helping others will also help advance their life objectives.

The 2017 Ultimate Pinterest Planner

Kate and Amanda discuss their Ultimate Pinterest Planner. What I found to be interesting was how they created a product that very easily kept their clients and fellow pinners on track. I will not only use their product for my pinning, but I will also take their concept and adapt it for the JCC faculty.

From everything I have been reading, you will continue to see an increase in the use of video across social media platforms.
