Life Tools: Personal development mini-site
Merlin Mann | Mar 28 2006
UK-based collection of "life tools" covering topics like time management, stress management, decision making, etc.
Similar to (the oft-linked and more exhaustive) "Mind Tools," there's several cool articles in here if you dig around a bit (along with the now-ubiquitous Capital Letter Nouns for you corner-office types). A few I particularly like are Force Field Analysis, Meditation and Changing Behaviour.
Nothing earth-shatteringly new, but I do think these sorts of extreme distillations can sometimes be useful in providing people a foothold toward improving their world. Just underneath the candy-colored shells of pop psychology and "personal development," you can often find some profound, reliable, and time-tested insights into what makes us tick.
Then, of course, there's "Mission Statements." If you're -- you know -- looking to state your mission.
