Ripples #793: Cultivating Seeds.
A splash of inspiration
from The Ripples Guy
4 August 2014


NO RIPPLES NEXT WEEK!
See below for the scoop.


PEBBLE:
I want to cultivate
the seed that was placed in me
until the last small twig has grown.
-Kathe Kollwitz, shared by Julie in Eugene, OR


BOULDER:
It's good to leave each day behind,
like flowing water,
free of sadness.
Yesterday is gone and its tale told.
Today new seeds are growing.
-Rumi


PONDER:
I am very excited to announce that some seeds we have been cultivating for a really long time have finally produced results, and in a few weeks it will be time to share the bounty: unleashing an refreshed website and newsletter!

The basic format will remain: Ripples will continue to arrive on Monday mornings via email containing a PEBBLE, a BOULDER, and a PONDER. You'll hopefully enjoy the new look and feel of the layout; in addition, we will be relying on Mailchimp for sending the emails out to help us ensure that everyone who wants Ripples receives them (several thousand of our subscribers have lost access to their weekly splashes because of spam filtering).

WE WILL SKIP RIPPLES NEXT MONDAY (August 11) but plan to be back the following week. I will post updates to our Facebook page so head over there if you don't see Ripples on August 18th:

In the meantime, take some time over the next two weeks to identify and celebrate any successes at work, school, and/or life that have sprouted from seeds of your own effort that have been cultivated over the past few months, years, or decades.
Peace,
Paul

Paul's Pick
READ:
Love is the Killer App: How to Win Business and Influence Friends
(Tim Sanders) This fast read is a unique cross between a practical business book and a self help guide. Tim encourages to think about “biz love” which he describes as “the act of intelligently and sensibly sharing your intangibles” which include your knowledge, your network, and your compassion. He has some really practical strategies, and makes networking feel less schmarmy and more organic.
