meanwhile, elsewhere

Friday’s online finds: Cozy up and dig in.

  • “You can’t stop the waves, but you can learn to surf” (swissmiss)
  • The shift away from private vehicles will happen faster than we think. (NYT)
  • Everybody Loves Samin (Bon Appetit)
  • The concept is simple: Intensive activity followed by high-quality rest and recovery. Most of the growth actually comes during the recovery process. However, the only way to truly recover is by actually pushing yourself to exhaustion during the workout. The same concept applies to work. The best work happens in short intensive spurts. But this must be “Deep Work,” with no distractions, just like an intensive workout is non-stop. Interestingly, your best work — which for most people is thinking — will actually happen while you’re away from your work, “recovering.” (Medium)
  • Homework: How to write an “About Me” (99U)
  • A 100-Podcast Syllabus. Here are the ones worth listening to. (Vulture)

  • Just because y’all love fanny packs (design milk)
  • What’s Wrong With This Diorama? You Can Read All About It (NYT)

  • I should have added “find a new career” to my forty before forty bucket list… this is depressing: Over the hill at 40? Could be, if you work in advertising (CBC)

Have a great weekend!
