Hi all! This is hmx-weekly, a list of what I’m enjoying, pondering, or working on. If there is one thing this week, I’d like to point you to, it is the Seth Godin interview. There’s something about him I can’t quiet explain. Extraordinary mind. Enjoy.

Culture eats strategy for breakfast!
He also says Yoda was wrong when saying: Do, or do not. There is no try.
This is Neill Strauss challenging the reader to take 3 hours out of your day to take care of yourself. Instead of binge-watching Netflix and Hulu, spend 3 hours today creating, learning, and moving.
