Weekly Link Roundup: LinkedIn & Executive Branding Links from Around the Web, August 5th

linkedin helpSometimes you just have to throw up your arms and give up. It’s true! Giving up is not the mark of a loser. It was last December when I had an amazing epiphany that changed my life. You see, I am an inveterate journaler and every year I write down my New Year’s Resolutions and then the next year I check to see how well I did.

Going through a decade’s worth of journal entries detailing my New Year’s Resolutions, I noticed that for the last 10 years I had a repeated resolution that I consistently failed at… BIG TIME. It was keeping my house clean.

No matter how hard I tried, I just couldn’t do it.

Now don’t get me wrong, my house wasn’t disgusting but it wasn’t as neat as I desired. Rather than accept this failure on my part, I decided it was time to give up and accept that I can’t do it on my own. ON MY OWN were the operative words. I gave up and hired a cleaning woman. That was one of the best decisions I ever made. Not only do I have a clean house but I am also helping a woman in her own small business by being a paying customer. It’s awesome. And it all happened because I GAVE UP!

And so you are probably thinking, “Uh, yeah, interesting story Donna but what does this have to do with LinkedIn, Executive Branding or even your weekly Monday Morning Link Roundup post?

When I started The Monday Morning Link Roundup blog series, my intention was I’d post all the links I curated on Twitter and LinkedIn throughout the week on Monday morning. It’s currently 10:00AM on Tuesday and I am only now getting around to this blog entry. So I’ve decided to give up and rename it WEEKLY LINK ROUNDUP. This way, I am right on time!

Have you ever been in a situation when giving up was the best thing to do? How about sharing it with us in the comments of this blog post?

Side note: I have another blog entry brewing– all about my time spent at the National Speaker’s Association Annual Conference. Keep your eye’s peeled!

Every day I post helpful LinkedIn tips and links to interesting articles about LinkedIn, job search, executive branding and self improvement on Twitter and LinkedIn. Each Monday I post a roundup of all those great tips and links.

If you don’t already… FOLLOW ME on Twitter!

So here it is, a list of all the links I’ve curated over the last week. Enjoy!
