Saturday Roundup – Holiday Edition

Merry Christmas.

Or, Happy Saturday, as the case may be.

T0day, we are herding all of my nieces, nephews, brothers, sisters-in-law, and parents into my house for a second Christmas dinner and gift exchange.   It’s the first holiday we’ve hosted.  It should be interesting.

On a side note, we’ve gotten so much snow, I’ve almost lost my grill, sitting on my deck.   Another 2-3 inches, and my patio table will be just a white mound of cold.

Here is a great story about waking up the Christmas spirit.    That’s spirit, not spirits.  We’re not discussing booze.

Think you can retire on a million bucks?  Think you can get to a million bucks?

I’ve recently realized that I’ve spent more time on the hiring side of the interview table than the out-of-work side.    I’m nowhere close to 500 hires, though.

Oooh!  Shopping for money!  That’s something I’m going to look into.   Nothing like turning habits into cash.

This is some serious travel hacking.   15 flight, 16 cities, 9 countries, 35000 miles for $400.

This is where I review the posts I wrote one year ago.

The secret to fearless change?  Just get started.  Everything else will follow.

I also wrote a post about one of my core values.  Without integrity, what can you really have?

Finally, a post on how distractions will kill your productivity.

Get More Out of Live Real, Now

There are so many ways you can read and interact with this site.

You can subscribe by RSS and get the posts in your favorite news reader.  I prefer Google Reader.

You can subscribe by email and get, not only the posts delivered to your inbox, but occasional giveaways and tidbits not available elsewhere.

You can ‘Like’ LRN on Facebook.   Facebook gets more use than Google.  It can’t hurt to see what you want where you want.

You can follow LRN on Twitter.   This comes with some nearly-instant interaction.

You can send me an email, telling me what you liked, what you didn’t like, or what you’d like to see more(or less) of.   I promise to reply to any email that isn’t purely spam.

That’s all for today.   Have a great weekend!
