💌 6 Things Thursday #33


This is Raad from Space Cult—a community where I share ideas to find the space between your thoughts.

1/ On getting better

Getting 1 percent better every day may appear to make no difference until you cross a critical threshold.

2/ A post I’m pondering

Most of your life is the journey, so enjoy that over the destination.


Prioritize the journey, rather than its end.

4/ A tweet that inspired

Clarke’s three laws:

  1. When an expert states that something is possible, he’s almost certainly right. When he states that something is impossible, he’s very probably wrong

  1. The only way of discovering the limits of the possible is to venture a little way past them into the impossible

  1. Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.

5/ A compilation I read

The bad news is you’re falling through the air, nothing to hang on to, no parachute. The good news is, there’s no ground. — Chögyam Trungpa
