On Sundays I like to catch up on lots of things. Chief among them?
1. This includes blog comments, my Twitter feed, and any messages on Facebook and Linkedin I’ve been ignoring all week.-E-mails 1
2. Seriously, I sleep a lot on Sundays. There is nothing quite like waking up, seeing that your alarm clock says 12:30 pm, then saying to yourself; “Yeah… this is okay today.” I will never give this up.-Sleep2
Beyond all of the above, however, I also look forward to each Sunday as a tremendous opportunity to catch up on all of the wonderful HR articles I’ve bookmarked over the preceding week (but never got a chance to read).
…I write about HR Monday through Friday (and share videos about it on Saturday), so I’m thinking that going forward on Sundays I’ll spotlight some of the more interesting reads of the day (that will no doubt set the tone for what I write about over the course of the rest of the week).
Maybe this will work, or maybe it won’t. As always, please share your thoughts in the comments below:
