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:
This week I'm laying down the FUNK... check out this one from Soul Brother Number One: James Brown - The Boss. This song was also on the fabulous soundtrack from one of my all time favorite movies Lock, Stock, and Two Smoking Barrels.
Quote I love:
“Make mistakes of ambition and not mistakes of sloth.”
Mistakes of ambition:
-failing on a big goal
-creating something nobody wants
Mistakes of sloth:
-not attempting a big goal
-consuming instead of creating
Mistakes of ambition teach. Mistakes of sloth comfort.
This one was courtesy of James Clear.
Something I came across on Instagram that hit home:
Be the doer guys!
Useful upcoming event:
For any of you in either Colorado or the mountain west, next Monday September 16th I'm speaking on a panel called 'Corporate Detox' as part of Denver Startup Week. We'll be discussing the journey from employee to entrepreneur. Denver Startup Week has tons of great programming, so definitely worth your time. *If you live outside of Denver, Tech Stars does Startup Weeks all over the world so I recommend trying to make it to your next local event.
Great Adventure Website:
Somehow I came across this guys website, Adventure Alan. The guy is a pretty hard core backpacker, and his trip reports are insanely detailed (plus he goes to some amazing locations). He also does gear reviews and a whole bunch of other stuff.
One extra tidbit that just came through:
Some friends at Protect Our Winters and a few past and future guests on the podcast made the news today while in Washington, DC this week fighting the good fight on climate change, you can find the article here.
Alright that's it for this week, thanks for reading.
Have a wonderful weekend, all!
