My favorite finds from around the web:
• How to keep your iPhone from destroying your relationships. “My problem is with something very specific: how we live with devices that take our attention away from the people we are with, right now.”
• The surprising kind of hero our soul really needs. “It’s one thing to create a hero who is lovable, admirable, and dashing. What isn’t so easy is to create a layered character (especially a cartoon one) who is chronically embarrassed, rejected, and made to look like a fool and still have him come out as the hero.”
• The Norwegian secret to enjoying a long winter. “It turns out that in northern Norway, “people view winter as something to be enjoyed, not something to be endured.””
• I’m not dominating the world and you can, too. “It’s true that some business and productivity experts have crushed the competition and achieved GLOBAL DOMINATION, or whatever they want to call “work.” They have worked harder, faster, and smarter than the rest of us. I learned after a year of anxiety and misery that I needed boundaries, limits, and a more sustainable pace that means I won’t be the best in anything, ever.”

Two years ago: Sugar is the next nicotine.
Three years ago: When I realized my own house was making me cranky.
Have a great weekend!
