Hi, It’s enthusiasm time again. Let me know what you think via twitter at @JamieSmartCom, on my Facebook page, or on my blog here.
1. A quote I’m resonating with this week
After the heartbreaking horrors in Manchester this week, I’m particularly resonating with this quote from Alexander Solzhenitsyn. It has me wondering about the areas in which I may have been prioritising ‘man-made dogma’ over my own spiritual condition. I’ll keep you posted.
“But that is the price a man pays for entrusting his God-given soul to human dogma.”
2. A fantastic exploration into the deceptive power of beliefs
I love it when people use simple tools (in this case, a hand-drawn cartoon) to make a powerful point. Check this out http://theoatmeal.com/comics/believe
3. This week’s glimpse of the future
This is amazing. The X-Prize foundation have just awarded first place in the Tricorder X-Prize to two teams for creating handheld devices that can diagnose 13 medical conditions as accurately as a leading medical team. The future is now! https://youtu.be/9Yj37PUN_VU
4. The best interview I’ve ever heard
I listen to a lot of interviews. I’ve heard a lot of great ones. This is the best interview I’ve ever heard (it turns out the interviewer, Joe Rogan, also considers it his best interview.) It’s with Jordan Peterson, the University of Toronto professor I’ve spoken about previously. There’s lots I disagree with him about, but this is thrilling stuff: https://itunes.apple.com/gb/podcast/the-joe-rogan-experience/id360084272?mt=2&i=1000385275262
5. This week’s 3 minute miracle
Many years ago, I played lead guitar in an unsigned band called “Honey” (among other things – we went through 4 or 5 names). The music was ‘noisy indie guitar-pop’. Anyway, my old buddy and former Honey bass player, Duncan Emmerson reminded me the other day of the wonderful song, Stop by the Mega City Four. This is the epitome of a 3-minute miracle, and I’m getting shivers up and down my spine as I listen to it now. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T1i6ocbNgiw&feature=youtu.be
That’s it for this week!
Thanks and big love,
