📚 3 Good Articles for You
We Misunderstand Anxiety and Miss Out on Its
by Dacher Keltner, Kira M. Newman
Anxiety is telling us that we care about the future
and want it to turn out a certain way. In fact,
feeling anxious actually releases dopamine, which
motivates us to pursue rewards and take action to
bring about the future we want. What anxiety
does is it’s saying you have this uncertain future,
and it’s telling you that you care about the future
because you can’t ignore it and you need to
investigate. The first principle is anxiety is
information. Listen to it.
a better thinking-writing
by Linus (8min)
Writing is the
creative by-product of your learning and
thinking process. A tool for better
thinking is necessarily a tool for better
writing, and a tool that helps you write better
necessarily also aids in thinking. Our
brains are good at thinking moment to moment,
but not over time, especially across days and
weeks, and months. Writing helps us think better
because it allows us to think across time.
by David Perell (7min)
Full-time authors, for example, don’t actually type
for 40 hours per week because they’d have little to
say if they did. Instead, they spend most of their
time collecting experiences. By the time they sit
down to write, they’ve already experienced what they
plan to write about, even if they aren’t entirely
sure about what they’re going to say. When they
succeed, their stories are well-compressed.
Compression can conjure the essence of an
experience, but never the real thing.

👀 What we're
really hot these days
Did you already listen to podcast.ai in
which Joe Rogan
interviews Steve Jobs but
it's entirely generated
by AI? They say that they
trained AI by using Steve
Jobs's data from his
biography and all recordings
of him on the web. It
is very fascinating because
if we can gather the
person's data enough, we
could regenerate the person
with AI 🤯
As we mentioned in previous
newsletters, now there are
many services that allow us
to generate images from a
simple prompt. DALL-E
from OpenAI, Stable Difusion
Midjourney, to name a few.
Also, some AI content
creation services such as
jasper.ai help us write
2,000-word article by
just putting the title and
keywords. Some ask "Is AI
think with Glasp and AI we could
somehow help us think,
learn, and create something
better! If we can capture the
sparked ideas and thoughts from
our brain, we could
understand ourselves better and
it could help other people too.
