The Simple Dollar Weekly Roundup: Back Pain Edition

On Sunday, I twisted my back stepping out of the shower, pulling a muscle.

By Tuesday, my back felt mostly better. I’m my son’s soccer team coach and the boy was so excited to play, I went out and jogged all over the field with him and his team during the game, even though I knew I should rest.

Tuesday night, that muscle popped again. Ouch. I’m back to where I was Sunday morning.

It could be a long week. Thank you, Advil.

What’s the point of popular? I agree with him in the sense that “Popular is almost never a measure of impact, or genius, or art. Popular rarely correlates with guts, hard work or a willingness to lead (and be willing to be wrong along the way).” His point isn’t that human relationships aren’t valuable, though. His point is that unaffiliated relationships aren’t valuable enough to worry about. Stop caring what other people think. (@ seth godin)
