Wisdom Alchemy Vol. 4

Here are some interesting things I crossed paths with this week.

Sahil Bloom shared 6 graphs on who we spend our life with over time. This is worthy of reflection.

I’ve eased into autumn with Miles Davis. And like autumn, I don’t think one could ever fully comprehend what he was up to with his craft. Listen here.

There is no more reason to adhere to any idea of cool. via John Mayer.

Stay calm.

Adios Summer. Things learned. Things seen. Things Enjoyed. And things worth sharing.

More and more of less and less. This has become my mantra for 2014 and I’ve read and gathered a ton of great data, information, random experiences, and insight as to how this mantra can help anyone in any period of their lives.

Check out these books.

Alton Lane.  Instead of 3 suits, buy one really great/perfect/made-to-fit suit. It’s fun too.

Moleskin Journal for Evernote. If you’re an Evernote user, you’ll love this. If you journal, you’ll love this. If you only do one of these, you’ll be doing the other by the time you’ve filled the pages. Hint: reflection is a great teacher.

The Daily Beast Cheat Sheet. Everything you need in national and global news. Just a couple minutes and your up-to-date with relevant and important information. Then go make your own news.

Miles Davis. Let us not forget what jazz does to our bones.

Seaside, Florida. Imagine a world without McDonalds or Starbucks. Welcome to Seaside. We think you’ll find some clarity here.

Godspeed in your pursuit of the music that creates meaning, purpose, and fulfillment and I hope to see you around.

After another negative news story in the background this evening, I turned the television off.

Off. Not muted or paused. Off.

Jazz has always felt appropriate as the moon swaps places with the sun, so I went with Miles Davis and shifted the mood. Eventually, the playlist led to a track called ‘Weirdo’. Something changed in that moment. The air became cleaner. Creativity fluttered. The food even tasted better.

Thank you clarity. Thank you Miles. And sweet Muse, please keep leading us away from our unnecessary and often blinding routines.
