Needles from the Haystack #16 – 02/2019
It’s already been a month into 2019.
Writing it out makes it feel kinda fast. How does it feel reading it?
This month, it’s all readables.
I read more when it’s cold outside. Plus there was a lot of good stuff!
I really dig the standard diagnostics approach by Tynan when not feeling to well with how and what I’m doing. It applies more often, than I would have thought. Give it a go, it won’t harm nor cost you.
Whenever we don’t feel at our best, we tend to come up with complex reasons for why that is.
But maybe the problem is much more basic.
Here’s a standard set of diagnostic to run through before you get into all those reasons you’re probably just making up in your own head.
You’ll be surprised how simply „complex“ problems can be solved this way.
Habitual complaining is a bad habit.
Like smoking. Only without fire.
And it’s not only bad for your lungs but for your overall quality of life. Here’s some nice perspective on that topic.
Awareness is key!
a) …is fun
b) …pays a lot
c) …is legal.
If you think a job with purpose is the secret ingredient you’re missing, this post has some interesting thoughts and suggestions for you.
This is a two – part post.
Part 1 is about Tynan’s general mindset about money and covers investing and spending.
Part 2 is specifically on spending money, which makes sense to get deeper into, as our spending is the thing we have most control over.
I really like Tynan’s approach towards money.
It might not be suited for everyone, but I got a lot out of it. Spending more in utility is a great thing to consider.
The job landscape is already changing. In case you haven’t noticed it yet, you will soon.
Your job could become obsolete.
Just because you think „No way!“ doesn’t mean, that it won’t happen. Jobs are a lot less complex at you look at them from 20.000 feet above instead from actually doing them!
Here’s a brief summary of what AI can already do and how you should prepare for the inevitable.
This is serious, if you’re younger than 40!
