Elsewhere: Week of April 5, 2021
Elsewhere is a series of interesting things I came across during the week, published every Sunday.
- According to this study, it turns out that you're more likely to feel passion for your work if you believe that pssion comes from pursuing important, rather than enjoyable, work.
- ”'Your best self' is a mirage that capitalism created to make you feel inadequate, so that you buy more stuff. Forget about it. Hang up the phone. Let's work with this self, the one that's right here, right now. […] Let's let go of all that striving, and plant the seeds for something new. What will you nourish and grow in the coming year, and how will you share your essence?” — excellent closing remarks from Jocelyn K. Glei's latest (final?) episode of the Hurry Slowly podcast.
- Breathe in through your heart, breathe out through your heart feels more focused as a breathing exercise. (H/T Pratik)
- Diverse teams can build products with significantly less shit-face.
- This Twitter thread is triggering my need for symmetry, but it's also pretty hilarious.
