December 2021
We're too eager to bet on people who overestimate themselves—and too hesitant to invest in those who underestimate themselves.
 
It's easier to build up confidence than to tear down arrogance. The people with the most potential are the ones who know they have a lot to learn.
 
Despite all the ills of 2021 (and due to some of them), I did learn a lot. Here are the highlights:
1. My 4 favorite books of the year explored the psychology of thinking outside your brain, the false promise of time management, the science of having good fights, and the human capacity for wonder.
 
2. Your favorite read was my NYT article on languishing. Here’s a collection of resources that I curated on how we can escape the blahs, find flow, and move toward flourishing.
 
3. Your favorite podcast episodes: Wishing you the best for a better 2022.

In solidarity,
