Hi all! It’s Friday. Hence, here is your weekly dose of hmx-weekly, a list of what I’m enjoying, pondering, or working on. Enjoy.
TO IMPROVE FOCUS JUST EAT LIKE A DRONE PILOT
I’ve fallen for the coffee and sugar diet somehow in the last few weeks. This article is a good reminder to get the good stuff into our bodies. It also outlines, that we need some patience when changing diet – some effects need time.
I have a book recommendation for you. Rework. Change the Way You Work Forever. I like it for breaking with assumptions we make about work:
“What do you really learn from mistakes? You might learn what not to do again, but how valuable is that? You still don’t know what you should do next. […] Evolution doesn’t linger on past failures, it’s always building upon what worked. So should you.”
“If I took this away, would what I’m selling still exist?” […] Which part of your equation can’t be removed?”
“Don’t throw good time after bad work.”
Smile meditation by Tara Brach. Tara reminds us of how important a smile can be regarding the “relaxation of the nervous system”.

What if obesity is only a proxy? What if a part of the equation is missing?
