I’ve got some delightful enthusiasms for you this week. Enjoy! Jx
1. A quote I’m resonating with
This one comes from Brad Blanton, author of the book Radical Honesty. While I’m very dubious about the value of his methods, this quote is a valuable companion for me.
“Yesterday’s truth is today’s bullshit. Even yesterday’s liberating insight is today’s jail of stale explanation.”
2. A masterclass I’m excited about
I’m excited about an online masterclass I’m doing today (Thursday) called “The 5 Paradoxical Clues To The Work You’re Here To Do”, and here’s why…
I’ve found that countless people have the sense that there’s something they’re “here to do”; a calling or vocation that they’re passionate about and feel fulfilled by. But far fewer people have a clear sense of what that is, and are taking practical steps to making their calling a reality.
Instead, people say things like, “I’d do what I love, if only I knew what it was” and “I’d do what I love, if only I knew how to do it.” But when you “answer the call” and start moving forward (even if you’re not sure what your calling is), you discover that it’s simpler than you may have been led to believe. Here are the details:
I look forward to connecting with you there!
3. This week’s glimpse of the future
Here’s one of the many cool areas where science, connectivity and play connect. Over a quarter of a million gamers have collaborated virtually to create a detailed map of the human brain, using the game Eyewire. Here’s an article about it: https://singularityhub.com/2018/05/30/neuroscientists-discover-six-new-cell-types-thanks-to-a-quarter-million-gamers/#sm.0016578fl12mjco0t5s2hdbiqit5j
4. Some extraordinary artwork
I’m not going to even describe this. Just watch the video (it’s less than 2 minutes and it’s truly breathtaking) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZrUm5d_1fsk
5. This week’s 3 minute miracle
Not usually my cup of tea, but I heard this while playing pool in a bar in New York’s Greenwich Village. This is Radioactive by ‘Imagine Dragons’, and it works best played loud on big speakers https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4U8C_XuE7wc
That’s it for this week!
