scribbles: Vol. 11 – March 12th, 2021

Good morning my fellow readers! Happy Friday and I wish you all a great weekend of relaxation and reflection, even if just for a small moment. I have seen many people reflecting this week as we are now one-year into the after-math of the pandemic. Oh, how time flys… In many ways, the last 12 months will surely be something we all carry with us the rest of our lives. I look forward to continuing to grow and learn from this experience and use those lessons to teach future generations how to be the best humans they can become.

For this issue, I have a wide variety of content to consume:

Read 📚

Last issue, I shared the fun Easter egg/puzzle that can be found on NASA’s Perseverance rover. Well, this week I discovered a website that lets you create your own secret message using the same parachute design! Brilliant. Save this for when you want a fun puzzle to give to someone.

Since I last published a piece I finished a book called, How to Take Smart Notes: One Simple Technique to Boost Writing, Learning and Thinking, by Sönke Ahrens. I am excited to talk about this book again soon as it helped fill so many of the cracks in my brain regarding note-taking and thinking. If you are at all interested in learning how to think more about the content you consume, than this book will undoubtedly help you on that journey. You will hear me talk about this book again, don’t worry.

I recently finished reading a piece by one of my favorite writers, Ryan Holiday. He focuses a lot on stoicism, which I find great solace in and connection to. This post was about daily practices and how they improve our life. He emphasizes in this article that daily practices are much more important than daily routines.

Watch 👀

Recently watched a short-film/documentary on YouTube called, Summer of Wonder. It immediately made me miss home and the mountains… It is an inspiring doc about two trail runners that both complete incredible feats in the trail running world.

See you in two weeks. Keep doing your part. We are so close.
