I appreciate the time you spend reading what I write. I’m still nervous every Saturday morning when I hit the “Publish” button. But, after 75 posts, I’ve come to love writing them.
Looking back, I was curious to see which posts are the most popular and how they compare to the ones I liked writing or thought were most practical.
I thought you might be curious, too.
The 5 posts you liked the most
Here are the top 5 posts in terms of views. “Working out loud” is the most popular by far with almost triple the views of any other post.
- “Working out loud”: Your personal content strategy
- When your audience says: “No time. No money. No thanks.”
- It’s about time: How changing a keystone habit at work might change everything
- Relationships and reputation in the enterprise: a course outline
- Why smart managers do stupid things
The 5 posts I most liked writing
Some posts are a joy to write. In some, I’m simply sharing stories or things I love. Others are cathartic essays, channeling a past frustration into a contribution that might help others.
- How’s work?
- When are the best years of your life?
- 10 gifts for that special someone (you)
- Hope in action: the story of the Makenaizou
- An idea for saving $10,000,000 + 10,000 lives
- 3 lessons from a forced career change
- The paradox of “they”
(Yes, I know there are 7, but I had difficulty choosing. :-))
The 5 most useful posts
At work, I find myself referring to certain posts – about life skills, commercial value, and tactics – over and over again. They’ve proven useful to people trying to change themselves or their firm.
- On presenting well
- Why you should write more (and the single best tip for doing so)
- The best approach to building relationships
- “Collective efficiency” – from possibilities to programs
- Driving enterprise change in a scalable way (Part 1 of 2)
I am in your debt. Writing for you has opened up new possibilities for me and new ways of thinking. I’m more intellectually curious than ever. More social. More committed to making a difference, starting by making work better – more effective and more fulfilling.
I bet you didn’t know your reading a blog could do all that.
