After the events in D.C. this week (and the events throughout 2020), I've taken the time to think about what the hell is happening.

After all the finger-pointing, we need to finally look in the mirror and do some self-reflection.

What I've been reading 👇
In this Op-Ed, @BenSasse put it best: "It’s time for civic self-reflection ... There are no easy answers, but one thing is certain: We have to become better consumers of information. Our media habits are driving this country to the edge of suicide."…
I wrote about this for @ProfileRead last week: While most of us are willing to invest in our health, we often neglect our "content diet," which refers to the type of information we choose to feed our brains on a daily basis.

Spending time with family for the holidays?

Here are 10 thought-provoking questions guaranteed to spark an interesting dinner conversation.

1) In something he calls the “theory of maximum taste,” columnist David Brooks says that each person’s mind is defined by its upper limit — the best content that it habitually consumes and is capable of consuming.

How did you improve your "content diet" this year?
2) Malcolm Gladwell says there are 3 three things we need for work to be satisfying: 1) autonomy, 2) complexity, and 3) a connection between effort & reward.

He adds, “Hard work is a prison sentence only if it does not have meaning.”

Do you feel this way about your work today?

Dwayne '@TheRock' Johnson has become one of the most popular and well-liked people on the planet.

When Johnson started in Hollywood, his ambitions were extraordinary — and his incredible capacity for work has made them a reality.

Here's how he did it 👇👇👇
Johnson is the highest-paid actor in the world, making more than $20 million per movie, thanks to a string of box office hits.

His films have grossed over $10.5 billion worldwide, which makes him one of the highest-grossing movie stars of all time.
The reason? His charisma and drive for greatness.

Johnson tests well in what the film industry refers to as "all four quadrants:" old men, young men, old women, and young women.

In other words, the people who don't like The Rock are few and far between.

This week, I unlocked 5 premium Dossiers for the @ProfileRead's 2020 Year in Review.

Check them out below 👇
Spotify's Daniel Ek is not your typical CEO. He likes to go on long walks that help him sharpen his thinking. He looks to Beyoncé for ideas on the creative process. He refuses to schedule more than three meetings per day.…
Legendary investor Charlie Munger believes that the avoidance of stupidity is more important than the pursuit of excellence. “You have a moral duty to make yourself as un-ignorant and un-stupid as you can,” he says.…

Meet Daniel Ek (@eldsjal), the Swedish no-nonsense founder who built Spotify into a creative empire.

Here's how he did it:

In 2006, he was asking himself this seemingly impossible question: "What is better than free?"

At the time, online music piracy was thriving in Sweden.

The country had one of the fastest internet speeds in the world, which allowed people to download music in seconds.
The second that Ek tried Napster, he was hooked. The world's music was suddenly at his fingertips — for free.

Napster eventually got shut down, but Ek knew that it would be impossible to put the genie back in the bottle.

Something needed to exist that could be legal AND free.

Here's why lowering your bar for victory can make you happier, according to astronaut Chris Hadfield (@Cmdr_Hadfield)

👇 👇 👇
Hadfield was an astronaut for 21 years, but he only spent 6 months in space.

You have to find a way to maintain a sense of purpose for a long period of time. How?
“I don’t wait until the end to feel successful,” Hadfield says. “I don’t say, ‘The only time I’m going to be happy is when I walk on the moon. If you wait until you walk on the moon, it still won’t be fun because it won’t turn out the way you envisioned.”
