Friday Links – 1/6

I’ve seen this around the internet (re: SwissMiss, Tim Ferriss, Cup of Jo), so thought I’d start doing the same. It’s a good way to organize, nonetheless.

  • Fad diets come and go (is it the Whole 30 now)? What if we just tried something more moderate, like being “healthy-ish” as Michael Pollen suggests here
  • We’ve all heard the advice of “be yourself,” but what if you’re natural instincts aren’t all good? I prefer this advice from Wait, but Why: Taming the Mammoth: Why You Should Stop Caring What Other People Think
  • There’s always nuggets of wisdom in Tim Ferriss’ podcast. I listened to 2 this week:
    • In this one w/ A.J. Jacobs, I found two things particularly interesting: 1) delusional optimism being key to success, 2) when dating, should we go for our opposites (re, if I’m 70% traditionally female traits, I should go for a guy that’s 70% male traits). A bit controversial, but interesting thought
    • And, in his 2016 learnings, I liked the tip of thinking about time when making any purchase – do you want to spend your time using it, maintaining it, etc? Personally, I don’t like anything that requires a lot of maintenance 😉
  • And, I just started using Audible for the first time this week (after much hesitation). I’m a fan – Listening to The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Mao at 1.1x speed right now
  • My parents and I binged on Black Mirror while I was home for the holidays. I highly recommend (and I rarely watch TV or movies) – interesting social commentary on society w/ a different format (i.e., each episode can stand alone, like a short story).
  • Mark Zuckerberg’s 2017 goal is to visit all 50 states. I prefer this approach to thought pieces like these
  • And, this made me laugh: A Selection of the 30 Most Disappoint Under 30 😉
