🧠 Proof of Learning 07: Kevin Hart & Jeff Bezos
By Jamie Sutton • Issue #7 • View online
Hello. I’m still alive.
Random discovery of the week: /r/HaircareScience. The basic haircare guide is full of nerdy details about what’s good for your hair and what’s not. I’m not particularly concerned about the health of my hair, but I do love nerdy details.
Here’s what I’ve thought about this past week:

💭 On my mind
  • 😎 “Everybody’s too fucking cool”. What happened when somebody tried to stop Kevin Hart from meeting Jeff Bezos at a private Super Bowl party? Spoiler: Kevin didn’t listen.
  • 🚗 Autopilot is inevitable. Take advantage. As creatures of habit, we can’t turn our autopilot off. Instead we can use autopilot to our advantage by ensuring it’s leading us in the direction of our desired destination. Every now and then it will need some re-calibrating. Here’s how I view life through the lens of autopilot.
  • 🧐 Taking breaks from happiness. Why do we feel that we need to take breaks from things that bring us happiness? If something makes us happy, and it’s healthy, why stop? I blame our inner non-doer.
  • 🕵️‍♂️ Spies have learned to eavesdrop by watching a light bulb’s vibrations. Using this method, research shows spies are able to discern the contents of conversations or even recognize a piece of music. From hundreds of feet away. Excuse me?
  • 😂 “No touch” karate master gets debunked. This video is the perfect mix of awkward and hilarious. It blows my mind that these people manage to get so many followers who flail around and act as if their leader truly has superpowers.
📚 Book of the week
  • Reading now: Rewriting the Rules by Meg Barker. A first principles-like look at our expectations around relationships. This book has explained several of the ideas around emotions and relationships I’ve touched on this month in my writing—seriously, it’s weird. I’m hesitant to recommend any book I haven’t finished yet, but if these short posts resonate with you (Show your cards, and Categorizing your relationships) then definitely give this book a shot. I can’t remember which post, but I believe I found this book through David MacIver (Twitter).
👋 See you next Tuesday!
Thanks for reading. Here’s a quote I’ve been thinking about this week, from a Nassim Taleb tweet:

How you did in this pandemic, as a country, a village, a business, a group, or an individual, whether emotionally, economically, or morally, is an indication of how robust you are and how fit you will be for the next decades.
Did you enjoy this issue?

Bite-sized ideas for curious minds, every Tuesday.
