Simply Good Life - Introvert? | Icebreakers | Hotel Signs | Status of my Book

Hi friends, here is your weekly dose of “Simply Good Life", a newsletter that tries to make your day a little bit better and help you to grow personally and professionally. Enjoy!

Introverts
In Susan Cain’s book Quiet, I found a fantastic definition of introversion:
Introverts may have strong social skills and enjoy parties and business meetings, but after a while wish they were home in their pajamas. They prefer to devote their social energies to close friends, colleagues, and family. They listen more than they talk, think before they speak, and often feel as if they express themselves better in writing than in conversation. They tend to dislike conflict. Many have a horror of small talk, but enjoy deep discussions.
So, are you an extrovert or an introvert? I feel like I’m somewhere in the middle. I definitely often wish I were home and I love deep discussions.
Inspire Great Conversations
Last week, I sent you a list of some random question generators. One of the newsletter readers - Peter - sent me a link to an app he created that will generate random icebreaker questions. I love it! Thank you, Peter, for reaching out to me! By the way, as a minimalist and former UX person, I simply love the app description Peter!
Icebreaker
Resolve Relationship Conflict
You asked me for more content on relationships so here it comes. Tim Ferriss on how to resolve conflict in relationships. Simply great! (you’ll recognize a book there I wrote a lot about in my last newsletters :-) ).

Do Not Disturb Hotel Signs
This is just a bit of fun. Here’s a collection of thousands of Do Not Disturb hotel signs from all over the world.
Quote I Love
I love the quote below from the fantastic $2 book Reinvent Yourself by James Altucher:
Learning never stops. Many people die at 25 but are not put in the coffin until 75. The learning stopped for them early.
I love learning new things. According to this definition, I’m not dead yet!
Have a great weekend,
Adam
PS: After months of work, the ebook version of my first book is now online. It was even in several top 5 lists in some categories for a day. OMG! Now I’m working on the paperback and the English version of “Successful without a word”.
