I’ve recently stumbled across some great writing that is essential reading:
- How to Do What You Love by Paul Graham.
“A parent who set an example of loving their work might help their kids more than an expensive house.”
- Ten Things I Have Learned by Milton Glaser.
“There is a test to determine whether someone is toxic or nourishing in your relationship with them. Here is the test: You have spent some time with this person, either you have a drink or go for dinner or you go to a ball game. It doesn’t matter very much but at the end of that time you observe whether you are more energised or less energised. Whether you are tired or whether you are exhilarated. If you are more tired then you have been poisoned. If you have more energy you have been nourished. The test is almost infallible and I suggest that you use it for the rest of your life.
I’m going to start posting links to this kind of stuff here.
