Happy MLK Day!
As today is a holiday, I’m going to make a point of getting outside. I’m not sure yet if that means hiking, climbing, motorcycle ride or something else, but it always makes me feel alive. Enjoy your week!
Something about productivity
Four Thousand Weeks: Time Management for Mortals is a book I haven’t read, and I’m not sure I will read it. I came upon an interactive article, however, which is a lengthy but good read and goes over ten practical, easy-to-use ideas and tools that align with my readings of philosophy and Buddhism.
Something about ideation
Sometimes you have fantastic ideas in your head and you want to be able to convey them to others. In How to draw ideas, the author shows a nice step-by-step process on how to get your idea from your head into something that makes sense.
I think this is practical in many walks of life. At my first startup in the bay, Sketchdeck, we were asked to draw pretty much everything we did before we made it. I still use this practice in product management efforts at Google.
Something from last year
As promised, I wrote my 2022 Reading List, which lists every book I read and ranks them from most-to-least enjoyed.
"The real art of conversation is not only to say the right thing at the right place but to leave unsaid the wrong thing at the tempting moment."

As always, let me know if you have any questions or comments. Also, I’m trying to increase the number of members of this newsletter this year — if there’s anyone you think might enjoy them, please forward it!
