No guts, no story. — Chris Brady

Decided to start with a super short, finger-licking quote today, in this section, because it shows in the email preview. So even if people don’t read the whole newsletter or even open it, their eyes might catch the quote in their flooded inboxes and get value just from a single stare.

Mouthwatering Concepts
Knowledge Compounds
A new book often makes you realize something essential about an old book. This is why knowledge compounds. Old stuff that was a 4 / 10 in value can become a 10 / 10, unlocked by another book in the future.
This is why picking “best” books is hard and maybe misguided. Usually it’s some combination of books that has a non-linear impact.
Expansion of this concept in this awesome Twitter thread.

Tempting Question
What is worth being certain about, even if there is a good chance you are wrong?
This question is just for you, but I’d also love to hear your thoughts/perspectives, so reply if you think about this.
answers on last week’s question of best advice from parents.
Juicy Books
I love audiobooks so I always recommend people to try out Audible (app). This book is especially well-suited for listening over reading, because it’s advice on life and love, read by the author, so you can feel the emotions.

The book (audiobook link) is a collection of the most heartbreaking and honest letters seeking help and the advice given. Strayed’s thought-out responses pull from her own life experiences dealing with her mother’s death, drug addiction, divorce, and now as a happily married wife and mother. They are beautiful written and incredibly moving. This book brings out empathy, laughter and at times, lots of tears. Tears dripped out of my eyes many times listening to the stories in this book. It’s awesome for putting things in perspective.
Re Human Lessons
I’ve been doing the Re Human project for three weeks now. Weekly lessons/recaps here: week 1, week 2, week 3. Daily posts here.

Delicious Music
Brain Smoothie is my most popular “concentration” playlist — it’s been battle-tested to work for midterm studying, essay writing, and last-minute coding project submissions.

Think Twice is an awesome chill Tropical House song that made it into both my Horchata and Caramel Nut Bar playlists.
