Beat the Blues – Week #44 Round-up
Here is a round-up of some of the most interesting content I came across in Week #44 of the year.
What I am currently reading:-
Farnam Street is one of the most popular blogs out there when it comes to learning and improving our thinking – The Great Mental Models is a project undertaken by Shane Parrish to create a series of books around mental models, a useful thinking tool pioneered by Charlie Munger.
The first volume gives an overview of some of the most important general thinking concepts to be familiar with when making decisions while the subsequent books will focus on individual subjects like Physics, Chemistry, and Biology, etc.
What I am listening to:-
Matthew McConaughey is one of the smartest individuals in Hollywood who always seems to know just how to say the right things at the right time.
This epic conversation with Joe gives a peek into his thinking, teen years, and life in Texas, and 60 seconds into the podcast, you can already see how he is a true gentleman.
TL;DR: Episode is alright, alright, alright.
A Tweet I am sharing:-
Aviral Bhatnagar on Twitter: “When I wrote my first Quora answer, I got two upvotes. Thrilled by that, since 2013 views of what I have written: LinkedIn: 120 million Quora: 30 million Twitter: 10 million AJVC: 3 million I am in awe of the power of compounding, consistency and content.”
A Quote I am pondering:-
“I’ve missed more than 9,000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. Twenty-six times I’ve been trusted to take the game-winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life.”
