🎁 Valentin's Present

April 8 · Issue #32 · View online

The best content I've ever found. Mouthwatering concepts, tempting questions, juicy books, delicious songs, exquisite short films, and other surprises.

Took me way longer than I expected to make this, but here it is: a short overview (5mins) of how I use Notion to be more creative, make better decisions, compound knowledge, be more intentional, happier, more fulfilled, and a couple other things.
How to use Notion to be more creative (5mins)
Had a lot of fun making the video, but wow, I now respect Youtubers a lot β€” making videos is a lot of work. My little brother Nico (10 years old) who’s been making videos for almost 4 years now was a big inspiration for this. Link to his channel.
I share links to templates in the description of the video ^. Let me know what you think β€” if you prefer videos over written things, how to make it better, questions, or simply what you’re thinking right now.
Mouthwatering Concepts
Awesome in-text experience about enlightenment / awakening:
If you want to know why it is called awakening, remember a time that you woke up in a dream.
There was a shift in the quality of perception right before and right after the realization. Imagine that happening in waking life.
A taste of this can be given in the quality of the following experience: become aware that you are observing glowing glyphs on a screen. Now notice the body posture of the whole organism reading the screen. The various muscular tensions, the feeling of the tongue and eyelids blinking, the rise and fall of respiration. There is a small shift in perception. Take the directionality of the difference between now and a few moments ago when you were unconscious of these things, and extend that vector out past your current horizon of experience. That is why.

Tempting Question
If you could change 1 thing about your life, what would it be?
Finger-licking Quote
β€œThe power of the unaided mind is highly overrated… The real powers come from devising external aids that enhance cognitive abilities.” β€” Donald Norman
(I think it’s underrated but still better if enhanced via tools)
Delicious Music
Khalid just released a new Album (2 days ago): Free Spirit. Noteworthy new song: Outta my Head (with John Mayer). In my Kale playlist.
Hope you have a good week,
