Caught my eye

1… Adam Grant – how to stop languishing and find flow

I’ve started watching the news in the morning, and Adam Grant was on the Today show discussing his Ted Talk. One of the reasons I wanted to start a blog was because I felt blah in my personal goal space. When I watched this Ted Talk, I realized “languishing” was the perfect way to describe how I felt. Definitely take the 16 minutes and watch this. Sometimes putting a word to how you feel will help motivate you to improve.

2… Pretty Notebooks

I think these popped up as an Instagram ad and quickly sucked me in. All I know is I love opening a fresh new notebook and these look amazing. I’m placing my order tonight and a few people may be getting them for gifts. New Year’s gifts are a thing right?

3… 529s

This didn’t so much as catch my eye but it is something I’m thoroughly researching right now. It’s important to save money for my son but there are so many different options. I live in Tennessee, so there is not any tax benefit to opening a 529, but if you live in a state with state taxes, definitely look into it. Either way, it is a good investment option to make sure your offspring can afford higher education.

4… Goodreads Giveaways

Okay, I have become obsessed with entering Goodreads giveaways. I actually won one of the books I entered for and am so excited to read it! The whole premise is that publishers give away copies of their books with the expectation that you will review the book on Goodreads. Even if you don’t win any of the books, it is a great way to see what is coming out soon and maybe find a new book to dive into.
