🆕 Personal Updates
Greetings from Portugal 🇵🇹
I’m currently writing this from my parents in a pretty remote part of the country. It’s been a great opportunity to experience a new environment and break my routine and mental pattern. In fact, it’s the first time i’ve been abroad since the pandemic and it’s reminded me there is a whole lotta world out there.
I haven’t travelled myself in a long time, this might be the longest in fact. It’s an odd but an enlightening experience and gives you time to think and break your routine and try new things. To that effect, I was confident I would manage to get a lot of personal work done on this trip, however, in reality I hardly managed to do a thing. Perhaps this is exactly what I needed 🧘‍♂️
Anyway, I hope you enjoy this issue. My content consumption has perhaps been shaken up with this trip, for better or worse, you decide. 
Right, let’s get to it - time for this months roundup 👇

🐦 Tweet of the month
This tweet is a thread by David Perell - creator of the Write of Passage. David shares 1o laws of the internet. Here are 3 paraphrased favs of mine. Check the rest out.
  • Building an audience before you launch lets you validate ideas before launch and cultivate a group of passionate early adopters who can give you feedback
  • The Paradox of Abundance: The average quality of information is getting worse and worse. But the best stuff is getting better and better
  • The Paradox of Specificity: Focus isn’t as constraining as it seems. The more specific your focus, the more opportunities you’ll create for yourself.
⚡️ Flashback
This month I’m going to leave you with this nostalgic 90’s movie night Airbnb. This one-of-a-kind Airbnb located in Bend, Oregon is the last Blockbuster standing and you actually stay in it for the night. Imagine sitting in bed eating popcorn in a retro themed space and getting to select from thousands of movies with no risk of late fees! The dream.
That’s it for this month!
