Hello and happy new year,
1/ A book I’m reading
The Bed of Procrustes: Philosophical and Practical Aphorisms by Nassim Nicholas Taleb
2/ An illustration I enjoyed
We live in the age of infinite leverage. It allows you to increase your input-to-out ratio by a factor of 100x or 1,000x compared to non-leveraged workers. Capital, cooperation, productivity, and technology, are just some of the levers.
Artist: Andrew Yu
3/ A framework I saved
Clarity, energy, and stillness raises wisdom.
4/ A show I’m watching
Meditating is the act of temporarily pulling away from life’s distractions to examine the nature and impact of those distractions at a larger perspective.
This is probably one of the best executions of a mediation practice brought to TV. Watch 1 episode before going to bed.

6/ A quote I’m pondering
All negativity is caused by an accumulation of psychological time and denial of the present. Unease, anxiety, tension, stress, worry — all forms of fear—are caused by too much future, and not enough presence. Guilty, regret, resentment, grievances, sadness, bitterness, and all forms of non-forgiveness are caused by too much past, and not enough presence.
