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.
Multipliers: How the best leaders make everyone smarter: This is a short video trailer for the book Multipliers. I’m halfway through the book, and just can repeat the recommendation. As Simon Sinek says leadership is not a position, it is a decision. I’m pretty positive the habits shared in the book – like sharing the “screw up of the week”, to spur rapid learning, or pointing to native strengths of others – will make your life and the life of your fellows way easier, more fun, and more productive.
HOW TO MEMORIZE A TEXTBOOK
How to Memorize a Textbook by Anthony Metivier. Great article, and podcast on how to use memory palaces to memorize the “big points” of a textbook.
THE BIOMECHANICS OF ROWING
A beautiful deconstruction of the rowing movements. And this in case you want to play “rowling” – rowing meets curling – check out this video.
MOST IMPORTANT PART OF THE CREATIVE PROCESS
The Most Important Part of The Creative Process That Everyone Misses: A Draw-Down Period by Ryan Holiday. He elaborates on the importance of having a reflection period when you are meditating on the idea, vetting it, letting it sit and so forth.
ARTICLES I ENJOYED
- Why One University Requires All Freshmen To Take A Coding Course
- The Myth of Creative Inspiration
- What Your Toilet Paper Reveals About Your Personality (not so serious on this, but I’m a monster)
