On Self-Help, Synergy & Struggle
Jory Des Jardins can teach us all a thing or two about personal development and living a life of ease. Not that she claims to have her act (not to mention her life in general) totally together. On her Pause blog she writes fascinating, and often lengthy, essays about her struggles with and opinions on self-employment, happiness, business, current affairs and gender issues.She's an excellent, playful writer with a distinctive voice. For a great example of what I'm talking about, check out her Rule of Synergy blog post. In it she makes some profound points about self-help, struggle and how we all choose to live our lives. Read it and you just might reevaluate your place in the world -- while enjoying a lively read at the same time.
