You know, that great idea for your next article, tweet or present for a friend you thought of the other day and then forgot about it? How many times has it happened to you? If you’re lucky, it comes back to you, but usually not in the right moment. This article is exactly about that and how to overcome it - by note-taking. Read it here

A short and simple blog post by Austin Kleon. He’s a writer who draws (as you can see from the photos) and he recently shared some pictures of his completed diary full of sketches and drawings. It’s kind of pleasing to look at. I hope I can look at my bullet journal
the same way some day.
This is a TED
article about writing emails. I like it because it’s concise, doesn’t “sell” nonsense and is actually useful. I didn’t know there was such a thing as manners to writing emails.
This is not a typical article about detailed steps to set you up for success. Instead, it offers an alternative perspective (or strategy), one that’s accessible to everyone. Instead of being the best in the world at something, be in the top 10% in the world at more things. Connected in one way or another, you become the best in the world at the collection of those things.
As it might be evident from some of my latest tweets
and newsletter issues
, I’m so impressed by Richard Branson’s
style of thinking and doing things. I’m especially fond of the the “screw it let’s do it” approach and the aim to be different even if you’re not always right. But he’s also dyslexic (surprisingly, maybe). He recently wrote a blog post about imagination and dyslexia
and how it will have a valuable contribution in the future.
