Weekend Notes X Links Around the Web
Happy long weekend to you if that applies. I had assumed most countries acknowledge the Easter holidays and was a bit surprised to find out that the US does not - and it’s just a regular weekend over there. On my side, I’m in that space where I’ve almost lost track of days because not only do we acknowledge a long weekend in the UK, my office closed on Tuesday and so it’s been quite some good time off! I’ve been able to catch my breath and do a bit of house and life admin.
Also, did you watch Beyonce’s Homecoming on Netflix? I would love just about 0.5% of her work ethic. My fave takeaway was her opinion on rehearsing. She mentioned that people don’t like to rehearse because it makes you humble, it exposes your flaws and you have to study. And that is so spot on. Whether it’s a rehearsing for a presentation, job interview, practicing your writing or creative process, many people do not want to come across as learners. But the faster we embrace the learning process and the flaws that come with it - the better!
Here are a few links for you to catch up on.
