Egg smuggling, Essentialism and a big week ahead!

Egg smuggling, Essentialism and a big week ahead!

On the Trail of the World's Most Daring Egg Smuggler
A story about international smuggling of a bizarre variety: falcon eggs. Not much more to say here, but this was a very entertaining read.
Greg McKeown — How to Master Essentialism
I’ve heard the book Essentialism mentioned in podcasts before, but I’d never heard from the author himself, Greg McKeown. The main message is simple, but it’s extraordinarily difficult: know what’s essential in life and be willing to say “no” to the non-essentials.
This episode is long, but grounding. You don’t NEED 2.5 hours to hear the message, but you could also have 25 hours and it still wouldn’t be enough. Prioritizing what is essential is one of those ever-present truths that is worth a frequent reminder.
Crazy week ahead…
On Tuesday, nine teenagers from Wilmington are launching a mentoring program in conjunction with two local middle schools. It’s hard to overstate how big of a deal this is. These teens have done everything. They designed the schedule, pitched the program, recruited the students, interviewed them, worked with teachers and much more.
On Wednesday, the Warehouse launch event is taking place at the Prestige Academy building. This event will be hosted by the same nine teens and they will introduce people like the governor, the mayor and the market president of Capital One. We’ve been working with these teens since November, and we can’t wait to see how they do this week!
On Thursday, Dual School is headed to the Education Reimagined Symposium in Washington DC! Me, Matt and two students are taking the Amtrak down for the day. The registration list is packed with guests from some of the top schools and foundations in the education industry.
Thanks for reading!
