January flew by as quickly as the entire year os 2018. Below are interesting reads of the week as I try to orient myself to a new year, 2019.
1. To succeed in the future, a college degree is a must while living close to a city according to economists.
2. What a comforting yet sad essay about women’s presence and representation as we get old. Noteworthy quotes below.
We all suffer, but not all of us grow. Those of us who grow do so by developing our moral imaginations and expanding our carrying capacities for pain and bliss. In fact, this pendulum between joy and despair is what makes old age catalytic for spiritual and emotional growth.
Our happiness is built by attitude and intention. Attitude is not everything, but it’s almost everything.
3. A good reminder to engage in deep work, something I’m consciously trying to do more of both at work and at home.
4.Mrs. Maisel’s been MIA during second season and this article tries to explain potential reasons — either way, it’s a bit disconcerting.
5. Didn’t know about the Grolier Club but want to go visit, if possible!
6. A modern San serif twist to acupuncture is yet another example of the old getting an update with fresh set of eyes and openness. Or is this another example of cultural appropriation?
7. Interesting list of questions to refer when I interview or host a panel.
