Happy Weekend, Friends!
Here are this week’s precious gems 💎:
🧠 Choice of Attention
‘Choice of attention - to pay attention to this and ignore that - is to the inner life what choice of action is to the outer. In both cases man is resposible for his choice and must accept the consequences. As Ortega y Gasset said “Tell me to what you pay attention, and I will tell you who you are.”’ - W. H. Auden

✉️ Letters to a Young Poet
A beautiful, very short collection of letters written by poet Rainer Maria Rilke to a young, aspiring poet.
“What goes on in your innermost being is worth all your love, this is what you must work on however you can and not waste too much time and too much energy on clarifying your attitude to other people.” - Rainer Maria Rilke, Letters to a Young Poet

🤓 Kevin Kelly's 103 Bits of Advice
On the occasion of his 70th birthday, Kevin Kelly, founder and editor of Wired published 103 bits of advice he wished he had known. Here are some of my favorites:
When you forgive others, they may not notice, but you will heal. Forgiveness is not something we do for others; it is a gift to ourselves.
Efficiency is highly overrated; Goofing off is highly underrated. Regularly scheduled sabbaths, sabbaticals, vacations, breaks, aimless walks and time off are essential for top performance of any kind. The best work ethic requires a good rest ethic.
• Life lessons will be presented to you in the order they are needed. Everything you need to master the lesson is within you. Once you have truly learned a lesson, you will be presented with the next one. If you are alive, that means you still have lessons to learn.
• The consistency of your endeavors (exercise, companionship, work) is more important than the quantity. Nothing beats small things done every day, which is way more important than what you do occasionally.
• Don’t wait for the storm to pass; dance in the rain.
