weekly tidbits – mosquito

What I’m watching/reading/listening to:

Emergence. It’s been a while since I’ve enjoyed a network show so much. The dialog actually feels natural, and the characters are all…so…likeable. And for such a potentially grand-conspiracy type show, it’s surprisingly low key.

What I learned this week:
The scarcity trap. I actually learned something really new. And it made me look at my life in a different way. Well worth spending half an hour out of your life to listen to this podcast.

What I enjoyed this week:
Such a great summary of some of the “harsh truths” in life that will make you a better person.
I especially like the Nascar analogy: Anything Worthwhile Will Take More Work Than You Think

We’ve all heard it a gazillion times: it takes 10,000 hours to be an expert at something. But that’s incorrect. It’s actually worse…
It takes 10,000 hours of “deliberate practice” to become an expert. You’ve spent 10,000 hours driving and you’re not ready for NASCAR. “Deliberate practice” means you need to spend 10,000 hours focusing on your weaknesses and pushing yourself to your limit to improve them. That’s hard. Really hard.”
