Mouthwatering Concepts
The Vacation Dilemma โ€“ Is the Ideal Life Lived or Just Remembered?
โ€œAssuming a vacation was equally enjoyable in every moment, then a two week vacation should be twice as good as a one week vacation. After all, there are twice as many moments of experiencing happiness.โ€
โ€œHowever, from the standpoint of memory, a two-week vacation is barely better than a one-week vacation. This is because there are no new memories added in this time, so all the similar moments of happiness are simply forgotten.โ€
Here we have the conflict. Say youโ€™re about to decide your next vacation plans, which youโ€™re reasonably confident will be satisfying.ย 
Should you go for one week or two?
More exploration of this question in this great short article.
The Tempting Question created is then:

Are you living life or just planning your biography?
Exquisite Short Film
One of the most classic (and most hilarious) Pixar short films:
Only 3 minutes.
Exquisite Full Films
Watched Green Book this weekend. Loved it โ€” reminded me of The Intouchables, one of my top 3 favorite movies of all time.
One lesson I took from Green Book was the importance of relationships and family. Dr. Shirley became a โ€˜geniusโ€™ piano artist, but he neglected family and relationships, and it seemed he missed that. This time it was art, but more often itโ€™s careers (although piano was his career). My mom visited me this weekend and we watched this movie together :). Great reminder to enjoy every moment.
Melt-in-your Mouth Podcast
Naval Ravikant just started a podcast. He has one of my favorite Twitter accounts, so Iโ€™m glad heโ€™s doing a podcast now:
Breaker: Naval - Seek Wealth, Not Money or Status
Delicious Music
Chet Faker, who hadnโ€™t released anything since 2014, released a new song this week! Sanity. In my Carrot playlist.
