"Long-term, if you’re really trying to get the most out of people, you got to build people up not tear them down. And I think that’s something that I learned about not just myself but other people. That you’re really trying to get inside someone’s heart and soul and bind them to what it is you together are trying to accomplish."- On NPR’s TED Radio Hour, four-star general Stanley McChrystal considers the intricacies and essential humanity of great leadership. David Foster Wallace captured this best when he wrote, “A leader’s real ‘authority’ is a power you voluntarily give him, and you grant him this authority not with resentment or resignation but happily.” (via explore-blog)
Love the sound of this!
I won’t be heading to burning man this year. There is no way around all the tasks and projects I have currently moving forward. And it’s just right. Building and sustaining my dreams are of top priority.
I will say though, after attending this party last year, and loving the energy and all the burners running and walking around the GSR, I am really stoked to get to dj at this party. Wether it’s a pool party or during the night. I’m thrilled beyond belief!
I’m wishing for a hot little make out partner to sit on my lap again like last year too! Bouncing kittens on my lap is becoming a favorite past time of mine.
If you are going to burning man, I would highly recommend that you book your rooms and attend this party afterwards Three days of non stop action. Seriously amazing time. Check the fresh bakin website. They offer special codes for room discounts for burners.
I would love to see your smiling faces!

I LOVE wearing a pair of boots out! Hard work earned. These still have plenty of miles on them. Come on out and grab a drank or two. It’s Friday yo. Pull your faces out of your computers! 😜🍷🍺🍸#reno #stjamesinfirmary
“Also notable, and on the agitprop front, is Molly Crabapple’s “Portraits of myself and Lola Montes with things said about us by our contemporaries.” This outsize painted wood cutout has faces from pulp-fiction illustrations covered with enough written comments to prove that little has changed from the 19th century to the 21st in terms of the verbal abuse often heaped upon nonconforming women.”

Welcome to the second installment of our government transparency report, where we explain in (hopefully not boring) detail the government requests we receive for account information, and how we respond to those requests.
How many requests? From January to June 2014, we provided information—either user data or blog content—for 84% of the requests made, covering 199 blog URLs. This represents approximately 0.00010% of all blogs on Tumblr. Not a huge number, but this is about full disclosure, no matter what the scale.
Also in this report: some emerging trends in the data, and some information about our improved user notice policy. Plus: a few additional gems to keep you fully educated about when the government is requesting your information, and what we’re doing to defend your rights.
We take the privacy of your information seriously, as you know, and we’ll be auditing ourselves twice a year from here on out. Look for our next report in early 2015.
"- Over on 99U, I shared some thoughts on how to live with presence in the age of productivity. (via explore-blog)
Do you think it’s a question of how much you balance that drive to achieve with being present and enjoying the moment?
You know, it’s funny because I frequently get emails from young people starting out and asking, “How do I make a successful website or start my own thing?” And, very often, it’s tied to some measure of success that’s audience-based or reach-based. “How do you build up to seven million readers a month or two million Facebook fans?” But the work is not how to get that size of an audience or those numbers. That’s just the byproduct of what Lewis Hyde calls “creative labor,” which is really our inner drive. The real work is how not to hang your self-worth, your sense of success and merits, the fullness of your heart, and the stability of your soul on those numbers—on that constant positive reinforcement and external validation. That’s the only real work, and the irony is that the more “successful” you get, by either by your own standards or external standards, the harder it is to decouple all of those inner values from your work. I think we often confuse the doing for the being."
"At last she looked up at him. Her eyes were full of tears, and her look unbearably naked. Such looks we have all once or twice in our lives received and shared; they are those in which worlds melt, pasts dissolve, moments when we know, in the resolution of profoundest need, that the rock of ages can never be anything else but love, here, now, in these two hands’ joining, in this blind silence in which one head comes to rest beneath the other."- John Fowles, The French Lieutenant’s Woman (via thatkindofwoman)
"Furthermore, warm, sustaining relationships become especially important during those periods when we are our least lovable. People bursting with good will and abundance of mental health are charming company; their need for ego-boosting, however, is minimal. People sinking into self-pity and depression are dreary, but they can’t get out of it by themselves. So every now and then, just sit there and listen, listen, listen. You’re paying your membership dues in the human race."- Barbara Walters on the Art of Conversation, How to Talk to Bores, and What Truman Capote Teaches Us About Being Interesting | Brain Pickings
