Weekly Mixtape

Morgan Housel: Never Saw It Coming “The biggest news, the biggest risks, the most consequential events, are always what you don’t see coming.

Dr. Joy Lere: Time Out “Time is slippery. How many minutes did you spend doomsday scrolling or looking at inconsequential things on your phone this week? Chances are a lot. Don’t fold in on yourself with feelings of guilt or frustration. Interrogate your heart. Get curious about why you choose to spend your time how you do. Be ruthlessly honest with yourself.

Khe Hy: Bike-Shedding –When Trivial Tasks Ruin Your Day “6 months later, they haven’t hit publish once. The trivial details are too seductive and give the false sense of progress. But they’re literally still at Square 1 (and out a couple thousand dollars).

Jared Dillian: We Are All Here To Feel A Little Stress “Because when you go through pain, and you deal with it like an adult, and you face it head-on, and you emerge—victorious or not, you grow. You grow as a person. You grow mentally, emotionally, psychologically, and spiritually.
