Here's your weekly dose of 5 Wisdom Nuggets, a list of what I'm enjoying and finding interesting or useful.
Song of the week:
The Velvet Underground - Oh! Sweet Nuthin'. I mean this song is silky bliss. I recommend sitting back, turning it up, and preferably having a beer in your hand and/or a great view to look at.
Quote I love:
"Great spirits have always encountered violent opposition from mediocre minds.
The mediocre mind is incapable of understanding the man who refuses to bow blindly to conventional prejudices and chooses instead to express his opinions courageously and honestly." - Albert Einstein
Couple of entertaining videos:
Friend and podcast guest Alex Honnold hilariously dissects some Hollywood's rock climbing scenes, in a way that is in true Alex fashion 😆Here's a couple more recent videos, one of Alex answering climbing questions from Twitter and one talking about things he can't live without (hint: the ultimate minimalist).
One of my favorite all-time articles:
What happens when you take full responsibility for your life - by Benjamin Hardy.
Podcast nugget of the week:
Tomorrow I'm interviewing the Executive Director of Protect Our Winters (POW), Mario Molina. POW started by professional snowboarder Jeremy Jones and is one of the leading climate change activist organizations out there. They do amazing work and I'm super pumped for the conversation!
So I have a request: What questions do you have for him? Anything at all, let's hear his answers to your climate change questions. Shoot me an email with your thoughts by tomorrow, August 30, 2019 at 10am MT.
Alright that's it for this week, thanks for reading.
Have a wonderful weekend, all!
