🎁 Valentin's Present

February 18 · Issue #25 · View online
The best content I've ever found, sent in digestible weekly gifts. Mouthwatering concepts, tempting questions, juicy books, delicious songs, exquisite short films, and other surprises.

For years, I’ve been attracted to the idea of “reading one book every day”.
How much would I learn? Is it sustainable?
Would I have to stop doing everything else?
Seemed like a time-consuming challenge.
Sounded cool, but was it worth it?
I hadn’t tried it because committing to “one book a day” is an arbitrary constraint.
What I care about when reading a book is learning and enjoying, not whether I finish it in a day.
Even so, I thought it would be a fun experiment to read one book every day, for a week.
Here’s an article with what I learned, the books I read, and what I thought about the experiment!

Mouthwatering Article
This written talk was supposed to be given to high-school students. I read it in high-school and I’ve realized it has been one of the most influential pieces of writing on my thinking. Really good for anyone — not just high-schools students!
Tempting Question
If you’re currently facing a hard decision, how can you create a third option? 
Exquisite Short Film
All conditions are perfect conditions - ski the world:

That’s an amazing 4mins and 28 seconds, and I like the behind-the-scenes 4mins and 13 seconds even more:
