Every few months there are a couple of new presentations/documents/manifestos on Change This. Typically I read or at least browse one out of three or so.
A good one this month is 25 Ways to Distinguish Yourself . A thing I'll try and watch a bit is number 13: plan by outcomes. Don't just do activities, but work towards outcomes. "I've been busy all week" doesn't count to much if you cannot really remember what you've accomplished. Make sure you've got intermediate goals.
There's an accompagnying blog with a nice post about ROII, Return On Interaction Investment. What's the return someone gets from investing time in reading your blog? From reading your mailinglist messages? From asking you a question? Make the ROII big and you win!
