David B. Bohl presents Sometimes Slowing Down Takes Work posted at Slow Down Fast Today!, saying, "For those who have come to understand that the rat race is not all it has been cracked up to be, and have finally made the decision to slow down and get some enjoyment out of life, there also comes with it the realization that certain planning needs to take place in order to be able to realize your goals of greater happiness and fulfilment."

Shamelle presents 12 Words and Phrases That Automatically Kill Your Self Image posted at Enhance Life, saying, "The problem is none of us say these words intentionally. Some people don’t even notice they are even doing it (if my mother hadn’t pointed out, I would either). It has become a habit."

It's an honor to get top-billing in this carnival! I hope my article inspires many to transmogrify their workspace into something functional instead of draining. Thanks again!

Thanks for your contribution from the Byteful Blog, your article was timely as I've just made some changes to my own office. Now when I turn off the light at night I look around and think "what a nice space to work in" which definitely helps in heading over there after the school run in the mornings instead of being lured by the kettle and some "essential reading".

Using the word transmogrify led me to reading your article. Thanks for that.!!!

Also, thanks for including my article on communication in your list. I've a few more to read as well, they are great top picks!

Ananga, I'm glad it was timely! Some times things just work out swimmingly.

Mike, Calvin and Hobbes fan are we? That word worked too well within the context for me not to use it. :D
