Today, as part of my ongoing experimentation and learning of late where blogging is concerned, I was able to find out exactly which of my 132 posts thus far have been the most popular with you, the readers. The top two of all time were, surprisingly, two of the most recent. And there were plenty of other surprises on the list, as well. So I thought I’d share the list with you — I mean, who doesn’t like surprises?
Here they are, in classic TOP 10 order:
One of my favorite personal stories of a lifetime, adapted from the chapter “People vs. Problems” from The Best Advice So Far.
A unique approach to dealing with ongoing interpersonal tensions or conflict.
Much-needed personal assessment checklist for those of us who struggle with the urge to debate, argue or always be right.
Chapter 1 from The Best Advice So Far, posted before the book was even complete — the foundational premise to the entire book and blog.
Personal story of a memorable night with a friend, along with important reminders to make time for stillness amid the “crazy” of daily life.
A challenge to engage instead of isolate, based on observations on a plane ride where adults had it wrong and kids got it right.
It’s not just about avoiding saying negative things; it’s about adding positive words to the world and the people in it.
Tales of a car crash, drugs, and loss. You can’t always judge the effectiveness of your attempts to have a positive impact on people’s reactions in the moment.
A bit of a rant (which you all apparently resonated with!) on some things that bug me about self-important people, and a plea to remember what is important at the outset of new ventures.
An ugly personal account that proves I’m not perfect, along with some self-assessment on apology skills.
Do you have a personal favorite? I’d love to know! Leave a comment below.
