🎁 Valentin's Present - Range, don't want but want to want, yes theory iron man, motion


🎁 Valentin's Present

June 3 · Issue #40 · View online

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

Provoking Picture
I like to frame “problems” as puzzles or opportunities instead, but my friend Luigi sent me this pic and I thought this was a cool broad summary, Yuval Noah Harari style.
Juicy Book, with article and podcast
I had been waiting for the release of this book for a while (was released this week), and it did not disappoint.
I’m all about it (learning across many disciplines and dimensions).
If you want to get a taste of the key ideas in the book, this is a great article about them (framed as “how to make your kids successful”):
If you like podcasts, this was also a great interview with the author, on one of my favorite podcasts:
Breaker: Invest Like the Best - David Epstein – Wide or Deep? - [Invest Like the Best, EP.133]
Tempting Question
This one I’d love to hear your answers to — will do the social experiment again where I’ll compile the responses in a page (if you respond let me know if you would want to not be added or to be anonymous), and I’ll send the responses in next week’s newsletter:
Are there things you don’t want but want to want? What are they?
And are there things you want but don’t want to want?
Exquisite Short Film
My little brother Nico (who’s super into Youtube) sent me this Youtube channel Yes Theory a couple of months ago. Their message clicked with me, and it’s the first Youtube channel where I’ve been consistently watching their videos (they upload once a week). The one they uploaded today was about Matt doing an Iron Man — it was so inspirational that it made me cry (although I may have a low threshold for inspirational things making me cry).
The 12-Hour Race That Almost Killed Me...
Finger-licking Quote
“Since life is growth and motion, a fixed point of view kills anybody who has one.” ―Brooks Atkinson
Delicious Music
This week it’s mostly a music-in-Spanish edition.
Released 2 days ago:
Playa Grande by Sofi Tukker and Bomba Estéreo
Aleluya by Reik and Manuel Turizo.
Not released 2 days ago, but are good vibes and recent enough:
La Plata by Juanes and Lalo Ebratt.
Si te Atreves by Juan Magán and Don Omar.
As always, let me know if you have ideas on how I can make these presents better, and if you have great content, send it my way — I’m just a reply away.
Hope you have a great week this week,
