Hi friends,
This is the second vacation edition of my weekly newsletter. 

Favorite Blog
I learned almost everything about minimalism and essentialism from Leo Babauta, the author of the zen habits weblog. If you’re interested in simplifying your life read his blog or just take a look at his latest article: The Clean-as-You-Go Principle
What Do People Look At?
If you have ever wondered about eye-gaze, you will find this article super fascinating. The interesting startup Sticky does eye-tracking analysis for brands and the results are just surprising!

Career Advice For Young People
This is a career advice I always give young people. 
Always focus on several passions in your life and become very good at two or more things. The combination of these two things will make yourself rare. So combine two pretty goods until no-one else has your mix!

Incredible Species
Please watch this incredible footage of a desert locust swarm, captured for the BBC’s Planet Earth and narrated by Sir David Attenborough.
Their eggs can remain in the ground for twenty years. Considering that an adult Locust can eat its entire body weight everyday, it’s hardly surprising that a huge plague measuring 40 miles wide will devour everything its path.

Quote I Love

This is probably the hardest advice to follow. Do you always try to learn why the others might be right? Do you try to know more about things you don’t believe in before starting a debate? 
Have you ever tried?
