1 and 2. I listened to two Tim Ferriss podcasts this week. One was with Krista Tippett and the other with Pete Adeney aka Mr. Money Mustache. I learned a lot in both conversations. Tim is a natural interviewer and I appreciate his honesty.
3. Speaking of Tim Ferriss, check out his new book Tools of Titans. It’s a fat tome full of wisdom!
5. I’ve really been enjoying Party of One: The Loners’ Manifesto by Anneli Rufus.
“Yet here we are, not sad, not lonely, having the time of our lives amid their smear campaign. We are the ones who know how to entertain ourselves. How to learn without taking a class. How to contemplate and how to create. Loners, by virtue of being loners, of celebrating the state of standing alone, have an innate advantage when it comes to being brave — like pioneers, like mountain men, iconoclasts, rebels and sole survivors. Loners have an advantage when faced with the unknown, the never-done-before and the unprecedented. An advantage when it comes to being mindful like the Buddhists, spontaneous like the Taoists, crucibles of concentrated prayer like the desert saints, esoteric like the Kabbalists. Loners, by virtue of being loners, have at their fingertips the undiscovered, the unique, the rarefied. Innate advantages when it comes to imagination, concentration, inner discipline. A knack for invention, originality, for finding resources in what others would call vacuums. A knack for visions.”

“Anger is often what pain looks like when it shows itself in public.”
– Krista Tippett
“We are given a body to honor and strengthen through movement.
We are given a mind to forge strong. A soul to keep alive and free.
No machine should ever dictate and shrink you.
Let movement shape your body and mind.
Movement makes you strong, so your strength keeps you moving.
Don’t wait for a magic pill. Start moving and say to yourself,
If I don’t empower myself, who will?”
