Weekly round-up of must-read articles, videos, pictures and more on careers, marketing, small-biz and better-living from around the web this week:

  • First rule of career-planning…don’t do it! – Marc Andreesen had a very thought-provoking post about the notion of planning your career and taking risk. Interesting ideas, though, he is the first to tell you, they are not necessarily good advice for those looking to cultivate work-life balance.
  • Why you should never work for or with Assholes – Bestselling author of THe No Asshole Rule, Bob Sutton, has a great article on the potentially awful impact on an entire organization when a bad client is taken on.
  • On the potential upside of blending work and pleasure – NY Times writer (and my friend), Marci Alboher shares great insights on how to blend what you love into how you earn your living.
  • Is it a habit or a task? – Leo, over at Zen Habits, has a great post on handling tasks and habits to increase productivity and get more done.
  • A look at Anti-Marketing in the Music Industry – Maki put up a great post on the band Radiohead’s announcement that they will be releasing their new album on thir website on a donation basis and how this marketing and distribution model is about to make waves far beyond the music world.
  • How accurate are business plans? – Guy Kawasaki put up a fascinating expose that revealed the start-up projections and actual expenses from Redfin’s Glenn Kelman two years out. Very eye-opening for those in the planning stages.

    @ Maki – My pleasure, it was an amazing article and actually Anti-marketing has an interesting tie-in to the Karma Capitalism I mentioned in an earlier post. They both focus on acknowledging and building upon the value of the community that has supported you.
