Stay up late. Share manly stories. And in the morning…

For those that don’t get it… Think Shrek (2001).  Donkey (voice by Eddie Murphy) to Shrek:

“We can stay up late, swapping manly stories, and in the morning, I’m making waffles!

And for those of you who missed it, here’s a short clip of the actual scene (classic!): [Read more…]

So, tell me. What’s on your mind?

GOOD SUNNY WEDNESDAY MORNING!!!!

The photo is a sand dune in Sossusvlei, Namib Desert in Namibia.  The climbers are trying to catch the sunrise from the summit which rises 400 feet from the ground.  Would love to be climbing this dune on Hump Day.

Here’s my selection of the most inspiring posts and moments of the week:

My Rachel was looking for research for a summer internship project to answer the question: “Are Leaders Born or Made.”  The first person that came to mind to help was Susan Barrett Kelley @ Great Moments.  Prior to jumping on this blogging train in 4Q11, I had never spoke to or met Susan but had come to admire her blog posts.  And, yet I didn’t hesitate to drop her an email asking for help.  (Love these blogging connections.  Powerful.)  Within several hours of my request, Susan had replied and the opening line in her email was: “Oh, this question is like handing a microphone to Charlie Sheen and asking if he has anything to say…”  She proceeded to offer links to research papers, web sites and her own point of view on the subject.  My reaction: Inspired.  How I managed to get wired to fantastic human beings on this ride…

Mimi @ Waiting for the Karma Truck in a return visit to inspiration row with her post titled: Post This: “The Post-It notes had one of three messages – “You’re Terrific”, “Smile” or “Have A Wonderful Day”… I started at the gym, surreptitiously placing notes on the handle of an exercise bike, on the mirror in the locker room and on the windshields of two cars in the parking lot. Honestly? I felt both tremendously silly (and I do silly very well) and sneaky (I don’t do that as well) . Onto a quick meeting, where I left one Post-It on the panel of the receptionist’s desk and again on a windshield. At Starbucks I put one on the cash register (there was no one behind me in line – the place was empty for a change), left one on the sugar/cream counter and in the ladies’ room…Talk about stepping outside one’s comfort zone…(Finish reading this awesome post at this link.)
