Dancing – the final performance was this month and it turned out pretty much as good as I could have hoped for. Happy and honored to have helped such a great organization as The South Bend Center for the Homeless and to have challenged myself by stepping out of my comfort zone
Going through quarter’s entries in my BestSelf journal – the goal is to see broader patterns over longer periods of time that I might otherwise miss in the moment, to relive good experiences, to learn from difficulties or failures and to see where the most productive and useful time is spent (amazing how much time is wasted on non-useful articles, meetings, books, etc. but I think that’s the price of admission to occasionally stumble upon the few gems which do have lasting impact).
Learning How to Learn – Coursera put together a great course on the different techniques to become a better learner, covering topics such as memory, chunking, how to deal with procrastination, how to study, improving productivity, test taking skills, etc. My Summary Notes
Tim Urban’s Wait But Why? is one of the few blog that I think is worth following and he just came out with a 130 page post about why Elon Musk started Neuralink. If you’re at all interested in biology, technology, AI and what the future holds when these converge, this post is worth reading in its entirety (quick interview with Elon describing the neural lace)
Seeing Theory – cool website which aims to make statistics more accessible through interactive visualizations
Dr. Tim Lomas has started a “positive lexicography project” which compiles words from all languages which have no direct corollary in the English language. I think absorbing these words can help one become more aware of one’s emotions and thereby better equipped to address and handle them. Full list of words by language, by theme and by alphabet
