My monthly newsletter covers the books I have read over the course of the month, the challenges I undertook as well as some other interesting articles, blog posts, interviews, tools, hacks, etc. 

 

Books

Teacher’s Reference Guides

  • On Complexity – I spent a couple months reading deliberately on complexity and its many off-shoots and applications. After summarizing the books I read and wrangling with the concepts for some time, I have attempted to make a distilled “teacher’s reference guide” or cheat sheet which (hopefully) describes the key terms and ideas in a clear, concise and applicable manner. I have found htis topic to have widely universal appeal and applicability and hope you find it as helpful and interesting as I have! If you’ve found it helpful in any way, please share it and I’d love to hear any feedback, questions, suggestions and so forth.


Monthly Challenges

  • Gymnastics Strength Training is a new mainstay into my morning routine. Great mobility, flexibility and strength results in just 10-15 minutes per day
  • Mini trampoline – got the inspiration after watching Tony Robbin’s new documentary on Netflix. Jumping for 10 minutes per day is supposed to have great circulatory and digestive benefits – no idea if that’s true but at the very least, it’s fun…
  • Three-day fast – third time I’ve done this now and it keeps surprising me how easy it is. Had a bit of a headache the first day but the second and third days I felt sharp although I missed the “process” of cooking and eating with close friends. I used ketoforce this time around (3 cap fulls in the morning with juice from half a lemon) which is supposed to help you get into ketosis faster. I didn’t notice a huge difference in how I felt compared to the last couple fasts but will keep it up.
