This Week's Reading List 📚

5-Hour Rule: If you’re not spending 5 hours per week learning, you’re being irresponsible by Michael Simmons (17min)
Knowledge is the new money. While goods are becoming demonetized, knowledge is becoming increasingly valuable. Unlike money, you won't lose knowledge by sharing. Instead, you will gain more from the process. In the web3.0 era, the exploding number of assets in the world gives more people the chance to profit from their unique knowledge. Furthermore, the rewards for learning will increase exponentially.

The Criticality Of Timing by Scott Belsky (4mins)
"One of the most important lessons I have learned over the years is waiting for process to unfold. Achieving a vision without breaking the system requires periods of generating buy-in, exhaustive testing, and allowing time to pass for ideas to sink in and folks to get on board." Forecasts for the future (a good exercise for everyone) should be grounded with a deep and accurate understanding of present day problems and humanity at the moment.

The impact of the Pink Elephant Paradox on our emotions and decisions by Dr. Hannah England (7mins)
Trying to suppress a thought “has paradoxical effects as a self-control strategy,” and can lead to obsession or preoccupation despite an individual’s best efforts to ignore the thought. This psychological process whereby our deliberate attempts to suppress certain thoughts make them more likely to surface has been named “ironic process theory” by scientists. Thinking of positive solutions helps you to make any appropriate adjustments or improvements.
