Thank you Valarie Kaur, you are a gift to this world.

Yancey Strickler: A Framework for Your Ultimate Self

Loving this talk by former Kickstarter CEO Yancey Strickler. With a simple four-square grid Yancey shifted his entire perspective on decision-making, his sense of self, and his relationship to the world. His concept of “Bentoism”, inspired by the Japanese bento box, is a way of framing your choices with an eye to the future, beyond your own self-interest, and with consideration for your community and the next generation. I’ll definitely be applying this to my life. Grateful.

This Morning Walk

My dear friend Libby started walking every morning over eight years ago. This radically simple daily practice has changed her life. It is form of protest, of healing, of creating, and of returning. You can catch glimpses of her adventures here.

I love this woman.

Obama Speaking Out Against Call-Out Culture

“‘The way of me making change is to be as judgmental as possible about other people‘ — that’s not activism. That’s not bringing about change. If all you’re doing is casting stones, you’re probably not going to get that far.”

“Dadvice”

As someone who was raised by a super nerdy computer dad, I appreciate this YouTube channel: Dad, how do I? A dad teaching things like how to unclog a bathtub, hang a shelf, change a tire etc.
