The latest things I've dug into including books, quotes, songs, gadgets and other things I've found interesting.

Happy Tuesday, all!
This week has a familial and interpersonal theme 🙌

Quote I’ve been pondering- If you think you are enlightened, go spend a week with your family.-Ram Dass 🤔
How To Be Friends With Your Family- an article from yours truly. Often the best writing is to one’s self and this is no different. 👫
It’s Not About The Nail- <2 minutes and a great video about the trap of listening versus “fixing,” and funny as hell. Paradoxically, often the best way to “fix” is by listening. 🛠
Recommendations- I have used this medium to recommend a number of things. I have stopped using some of the recommendations myself and wanted to be transparent about that in order to feel more in integrity. None of this is intentional duping. Rather, my tastes and preferences have changed. As a result, going forward I intend to use products or services for 3 months before recommending them (Lindy). For example, I was a big fan of Superhuman at first but their mobile app isn’t as good as I’d like, and I killed the service after a few months. I’ll be launching a website soon, stay tuned, 😉 and intend to make a page explicitly about things I have gotten wrong or ways I have changed my mind. This is both to demonstrate evolution of thought and be proactive about owning mistakes or errors in judgment to avoid “gotcha” situations. I wish more people would do this and showing is better than telling and I’m happy to serve as an N of 1.
Lindy Effect for those curious- The Lindy effect is a theory that the future life expectancy of some non-perishable things like a technology or an idea is proportional to their current age, so that every additional period of survival implies a longer remaining life expectancy.[1] Where the Lindy effect applies, mortality rate decreases with time. ⌛️

Be well,
