          Zat Rana, who has the blog “Design Luck” and writes for Medium as well, is one of the most thoughtful writers in a vastly over-crowded internet world. Today’s post is a thoughtful and relevant essay on the importance and power of the imagination in our lives. If you read only one essay this weekend, make it this one!

          The weekend is a good time to reflect on what we see as success in our lives–something that changes as we grow in new directions. Today’s essay by Zat Rana reminds us that success comes not from a sudden miracle but through the continuing every-day incremental work we do.

Don’t set goals for yourself—instead, create systems that make it easy for you to succeed — Quartz

***Personal Development Series: Personal Systems***

           I really like this essay–setting up personal systems for shaping our lives is so much more effective than setting goals and making “resolutions.” Since I am in the middle of a move, I find it especially helpful. You may or may not find the specific approach helpful–what is important is the fundamental idea of a personal system rather than a list of goals. Check it out!

          “Success” has many meanings–and no meaning at all. Chasing success can be the worst possible thing for us to do in the longer term. This very thoughtful essay by Zat Rana on Medium offers reflections that can benefit us all.

          For decades there has been too much emphasis on specialization, not enough on the “endless curiosity” needed for true success. To consider this as a necessary either/or is to misunderstand all the important contributions to civilization. If you would live a meaningful life, combining depth and breadth is the key. Today’s post offers a useful meditation for a quiet walk in the woods.
