1. First up: We couldn't find the perfect planner (to us that meant: compact/clean design/actually useful) so we made one ourselves. The Q Planner follows our ethos of taking things one quarter at a time...and also carving out space for gratitude, big goals, and - crucially - yourself, every single day. Get yours here.
2. There's also The Work Book - a sleek and streamlined collection of all our best assignments and worksheets from the Class of 2018. Buy the physical or digital versions over here.
3. "It's not a dirty word. I want to be rich!" Call Your Girlfriendpodcaster/digital strategist/influencer (her choice of job title, not ours) Aminatou Sow's Work Diary for The New York Times features some very inspiring day rates.
4. "In the past, being relaxed and not burdened with too much work was a sign of status. Now, being extremely busy shows you are important. If you are not insanely overburdened, then you are seen as a slacker." This article from The Guardian will make you reconsider'coasting' in your job (at least for these final few weeks of the year. Bet you're tired. We are).
5. Speaking of slowing down: Writer and essaying Pico Iyer makes a very compelling case for doing just that on Oprah's Super Soul Conversations. I'm off to read his new book The Art of Stillness(slowly).
Politics, comedy, and art become one in Black Mirror: Art As Social Satire at Saatchi Gallery which features work from 26 contemporary artists.
Charles White: A Retrospective at MoMA features four decades of powerful portraits of African-Americans.
On view at LACMA now, 3D: Double Vision is the first American exhibition to survey a full range of artworks, dating from 1838 to the present, produced in three dimensions.
