Most RT'd quotes last week on @thecoachingblog

Each Thursday I share the most RT’d quote(s) from the blogs twitter account over the previous week.

There were lots of RT’s over the last week, yet no quote really charged into the lead as we sometimes see.

Last week the most RT’d tweet was a three-way tie between:

“People often say that motivation doesn’t last. Well, neither does bathing – that’s why we recommend it daily.”

(Zig Ziglar)

Tweeted on 18th Octber

“Greater happiness comes with simplicity than with complexity.”

(Buddha)

Tweeted on 19th October

and

“Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work.”

(Thomas Edison)

Tweeted on 19th October

Several quotes also tied for “second place” with the next highest amount of RT’s:

“Trust because you are willing to accept the risk, not because it’s safe or certain.”

(Anon)

Tweeted on 19th October

“Let no feeling of discouragement prey upon you, and in the end you are sure to succeed.”

(Abraham Lincoln)

Tweeted on 18th October)

“Things work out best for those who make the best of how things work out.”

(John Wooden)

Tweeted on 18th October

“In three words I can sum up everything I’ve learned about life: it goes on.”

(Robert Frost)

Tweeted on 15th October)

and

“In imagination, there’s no limitation.”

(Mark Victor Hansen)

Tweeted on 14th October

thank you

Many thanks to everyone who shared the quotes above and the other quotes from last week. I know that there are various aspects that can influence if a quote attracts your attention – if you saw the tweet, personal style, if it speaks to something happening in your life at that moment etc.

Which quote do you prefer?

(For those of you as geeky as I am and wondering what tool I’m using to measure individual RT’s this week I’ve been playing with www.twitonomy.com)

Blog posts for coaches from around the web – 19th October 2014

Category: blog postsJen Waller @ 6:30 am

The Bumper Edition!

share your posts

Regular readers will know that each week I post a recap of blog posts for coaches from around the web. As I was travelling last week, with only basic internet access, I “rolled over” last weeks posts to be included in a “bumper edition” today!

How do posts appear on this list?

The list is created using two different sources:

Source One

Each Monday on this blogs Facebook page I usually issue the following question and invitation:

“Have you written/seen a blog post in the past week that you’d think is of interest to coaches and that you’d like to share?”

Many of the posts shared on Facebook will then appear on this list.
Source Two
I personally add posts that have attracted my eye for one reason or another. Sometimes this will be because it fits with a request from a reader about what the want to read more about. Sometimes it’s a post that covers a topic I know from working with clients that coaches will find valuable and/or interesting. Then there are also the posts that just really resonate with me personally.

So let’s start this week’s list ….

Posts shared on our Facebook page:

A few posts also attracted my attention either personally or because of readers requests to read more on a particular subject…

Other posts for coaches from around the web:

Want your post included next week? If you have a post that you think will be of interest to coaches do take part in tomorrow’s Monday invite and leave the details on our Facebook page. Whilst it’s lovely for posts to be sent to me via twitter, the nature of a tweet means that it can easily be overlooked when this post is being compiled at a later time. Please leave links in one place, ie the thread on our Facebook page so they can be easily shared.
