I woke up this morning to some great news:
The podcast has crossed 10,000 unique downloads. It was launched just over 2 months ago and has quickly become one of the top 2.5% podcasts in the entire world.
Thank you for your support.
Now let’s get into the treasure…
1. The world is getting better.
If you pay attention to the news, you’d think the world was ending.
But the truth is that the world is getting better.
This amazing graph shows…
- Child mortality
- Life expectancy
- Women’s education
- Basic water source
- Basic sanitation.
…all improved drastically worldwide in the past 120 years.
2. The most incredible story I’ve read this week.
I read this short story on Twitter and was absolutely blown away.
Three main points:
- Strangers are kind
- Share your story
- Be willing to ask for help
Don’t want to spoil it for you but it’s a quick read worth your time.
3. We found a minimoon.
For only the second time ever, scientists found a minimooon.
In many ways, we’re living in the future.
We can fly from one continent to the next.
We can talk to people who aren’t physically present with a few clicks.
We can order stuff online that arrives at our doorsteps within 24 hours.
But I highlight this new discovery to remind us that… while we simultaneously know a lot, we also know so little.
4. Upgrade your mental operating system
Both incredible, quick books that will upgrade your mental operating system.
Biggest insight from Hell Yeah or No: Derek Sivers is one of the clearest thinkers of our generation. That’s it.
Biggest insight from It Takes What It Takes: Your mind dictates your reality.
I will publish notes from these books on my website later this week.
