What I’m Reading – Week of December 8th

Below are some of the most intriguing, thought-provoking and actionable performance-related content pieces I read, watched or listened to this week.

(rainy Sunday hike catching up on podcast listens)

  • Obsession Is Natural

By Kobe Bryant


  • Mental Models (VERY LONG POST but I’m a huge fan of Shane and of FS)

“Mental models are how we understand the world. Not only do they shape what we think and how we understand but they shape the connections and opportunities that we see. Mental models are how we simplify complexity, why we consider some things more relevant than others, and how we reason.”


  • On Perfection

“Perfection dangles on a string as we run in place chasing after it on our respective treadmills. We’ve put perfection up a pedestal that none of us can ever reach.”


  • Do What You’re Doing

“Do what you’re doing” sounds trite. But it draws your attention to the self-defeating inner resistance that often underlies challenging tasks.
