What I’m Reading – The Week of Oct 20th

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

  • You Never Have Time, Only Intentions


Time shrinks and disappears, or arrives with new problems we hadn’t accounted for. It has done this out whole lives, and we never learn. Unlike time, you can deal with intentions without demanding more from them than they can deliver.

  • On the Importance of Figuring Out What Not To Do With Your Life


It’s often more difficult to discern what we’re born to do than what we’re born not to do. So rule out the impossible – then be open to the rest.”

  • Decision Making Is As Much Art As Science


It’s not enough to be different – you must also be correct.  The goal is not to make perfect decisions but rather to make better than average decisions and get better over time.

  • How Meditation Made Me Better At My Work
