In an effort to help me keep up with everything I post each week, here is my latest “Sunday Summary” of my posts from the week.
Mon, November 6: You need to envy the entire life
It’s easy to envy pieces of someone else’s life; the victory they had or their carefully-curated Instagram life. If you want to envy them, though, you should look at the complete picture first (and then it’s often much less envy-worthy).
Tue, November 7: The State of Louisiana Literacy Test
Even when Black Americans had the right to vote, there are shady roadblocks set up for them to prevent them from voting, such as this test. Can you pass it?
Wed, November 8: Do your own research?
Is doing your own research the best way to go? Is it even really possible?
Thu, November 9: Reaching a goal is the penalty you receive for setting one
Goal setting is generally a good thing, but in this video Emmanuel Acho makes a solid argument that we should give up goal setting and focus in different ways instead.
Fri, November 10: Problems need to be discovered
Having the answers to problems is a great thing, but the ability to find the right problems can be even better.
Sat, November 11: Arriving early shows respect
If you can be early for your next meeting, that shows respect to those you’re meeting with. That also explains why many people often run late.
I hope you found some value in this. If you ever have questions, ideas, or disagreements regarding anything I write, please don’t hesitate to reach out.
