Dropbox Paper

Given that my companies Tattly and CreativeMornings run on Dropbox, I was excited to see that they launched a new collaborative tool called Paper. It enables teams to collaborate on different projects. It’s a virtual piece of paper where teams can write things down and that can also handle things like YouTube videos, Google docs, and images, all of which automatically appear embedded on the page when added. Interesting.

Thoughts on Divorce

“But what can happen over time is this: You wake up one day and realize that you have put yourself back together completely differently. That you are whole, finally, and strong – but you are now a different shape, a different size. This sort of change — the change that occurs when you sit inside your own pain — it’s revolutionary. When you let yourself die, there is suddenly one day: new life. You are Different. New. And no matter how hard you try, you simply cannot fit into your old life anymore. You are like a snake trying to fit into old, dead skin, or a butterfly trying to crawl back into the cocoon, or new wine trying to pour itself back into an old wineskin. This new you is equal parts undeniable and terrifying.”

Beautifully honest post on divorce, by Glennon Doyle Melton. The PS at the end resonated especially. Thanks for sharing, Elizabeth Gilbert.

Children’s Drawings Gone Jewelry

Tasarım Takarım (I Wear Design) turns children’s drawings into fine jewelry, translating the doodles into small pendants made of silver or gold. Totally doing this.

Positive Vision

“In order to carry a positive action we must develop here a positive vision.”
– Dalai Lama

There are currently so many people living with no sense of potential, zero positive vision. We must change that, but not with fueling their fears…

Bruce Lee Wall Decal

Bruce Lee Wall Decal

A lot of people don’t know that Bruce Lee was not just a martial arts and movie celebrity but also a deep philosopher. One of his favorite quotes Be Like Water is now available as a wall decal.

Also, if you’re into Bruce Lee and his story, you might enjoy the brand new Bruce Lee Podcast, hosted by no other than his daughter, Shannon Lee and my friend Sharon Lee.
