  • “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)
