• The Nextness is onto something in Should you go your own way? when it proclaims, “One of the most common features in the blogosphere is the “How to. Ten tips to… 5 steps towards… The best advice I… How I got to where I am.” So true. It makes you wonder if the real reason we keep hanging on all these words of advice is because we don’t have the fearlessness to follow through with our own vision.

• Don’t expect your dreams to come true overnight. You’ve gotta put in the hard work first and get your hands dirty. That’s truly part of the adventure.

• Great insights on perfectionism and learning how to do nothing.

• Designers, what do you do when you send out a project estimate and a client no longer wants to hire you? I always say, stand your ground. You (and your work) are worth it!

• An unlikely pairing but way awesome: Bon Appétit interviews Rick Ross about food.

• A List Apart has just put together a Summer Reading Issue.

• Photographer Bonnie Tsang ate her way through Portland’s culinary hotspots and snapped her meals along the way. I still need to visit quite a few of these in my fair city!

• This article claims that it’s harder making friends as an adult. “As people approach midlife, the days of youthful exploration, when life felt like one big blind date, are fading. Schedules compress, priorities change and people often become pickier in what they want in their friends.” Agree?

• Learn how to say no like a boss.

• Pantone luggage?! Yes, it exists. Crossing my fingers it eventually arrives on U.S. shores!
