Another week come & gone! Time flies when you’re having fun, eh? I’ve had a great week & for no particular reason. I am excited to report that a good (graphic designer) friend of mine has offered to help me create a new logo for the site! I am stoked. Once I have the logo, I will put the finishing touches on the new site design and will be headed over to Evolution’s new domain. It is an exciting & scary thought. I’ve put a lot of heart into this blog so far. I hope & believe that the changes are going to help take things to the next level.

That said, let’s get on to this week’s Carousel. Wow, there was a ton of great stuff floating around the Web this week. Here are my favorites. Enjoy!

1. 5 Ways of Using Limits to Get More Enjoyment Out of Your Life Today: This is certainly an area that I am working on & need to continue working on, setting limits. Here are some great tips to get you into better habits.

2. How to Live a Fulfilled, Joyful, Creative Life: Now how is that for an awesome title? Let me know if you think the post lives up to its name. I took a lot away from it.

3. 5 Uncluttering Things You Can Do in Your Office Right Now: My desk is a mess about 75% of the time; but after reading (and implementing these 5 really simple steps) it’s looking rather lovely.

4. The Most Important Success Tip: Stop Lying Down with Dogs, Already: Oh yes, this one is a must-read. Have you ever questioned why you surround yourself with the people you surround yourself with? Have you ever wanted to improve the situation some? This post will tell you how to do it and how to do it without being a jerk.

5. How to Solve 90% of Life’s Problems: Oh, I love, love, love this article! Absolutely simple, but absolutely true.

6. The Ultimate How to Get Lean Guide: This is a great article from Zen Habits. It is so different than any of the fitness articles I’ve previously read. It is geared toward losing those last 10-15 “stubborn” pounds and is packed full of extremely useful tips.

7. I’ve Just Been So Busy Lately: The excuse we’ve all heard (and used) too many times.. and why it’s a load of BS.

“Here’s a reality check: because we’re all busy, no one really cares about how busy someone else is. One way or another, we all make time for what’s important to us.”

8. Living Without Money in London: About a woman living in London without money, really interesting topic and article. I just love to read about vagabonds, the ultimate in minimalism.

9. The Yay Scale!: Oh this is too cute & wonderful! You’ve got to see it for yourself. (Thanks, Leeann!)

10. How to Enjoy Your Forgotten Superpowers: There are lots of good things about this article, but my favorite has to be this quote:

“You are just a naked animal, plus stuff.”

11. Steve Jobs: How to Live Before You Die: Required thinking for the human race.


Have a wonderful weekend! Remember to make the best out of every single moment as it passes. Life is yours for the taking.

    This week really did go by fast. Maybe it was due to it being slightly more busy than the last week.
    You have a great list of links here. I really related with Carlos' post on how to solve 90% of your problems.
    Thanks Dee!

    If you need any more help than unclutterer can provide straightening out your workspace, I'd be happy to help.
