I must say, it’s been a very busy month. After the release of my “Unlimited Drive”, every other obligation in my life came stampeding back. Despite my lack of free time, I have a lot of interesting blog posts that are in-process and will be released in a week or so, so look forward to that. In the meanwhile, I want to provide you some links to some of the best content on the web. The three categories today are success, change, and healthy living. Enjoy!

My recent focus has shifted towards the relationship between career, lifestyle, happiness, and mastery. They are all strongly interconnected in ways that I was previously unaware of. The articles below will give you a sense of what I mean.
Considering my growing interest in increasing productivity, it’s only natural that the subject would end up in another edition of “Best of the Web.” The article on time management really hit home with me and it is something I will adopt starting immediately.
Note: Concerning the article on personal branding, I don’t completely agree with the author that your resume is worthless. When you network correctly, your resume is an excellent tool for someone to pass your name along to higher-ups along with his/her personal recommendation. It is crucial to keep your resume in tip top shape.
