article i enjoyed
Make the Commitment You're Afraid to Make by Nat Eliason.
Nat references neophilia, a term for our enthusiasm for what is new or novel, in this article about commitment. He sees it as a distraction.
I've been thinking about the term since.
product i enjoyed
Things 3 by Cultured Code.
The best todo list app to implement the GTD system in. And the most delightful! I've switched productivity apps multiple times since starting as a PM, but now I'm ready to commit.
I'm committing to Things 3 (and the Apple Notes app for note taking lol) for 2024. Yay commitment!!
Props Mahesh for the rec.
book i enjoyed
Yes Man by Danny Wallace.
A memoir from a man who commits to saying yes to every question for some months. The book is so funny/entertaining and I quite recommend it.
Also IMO many people are just a month of yes away from the community and excitement they want in their lives.
I recommend the movie too! Jim Carrey is in it.
music i enjoyed
Layover by V of BTS.
This R&B album is exactly my taste and I appreciate how cohesive the entire album is 🤗
I've been walking around Williamsburg vibing to it
video i enjoyed
Here's Why Dessert is Gay by Flagrant.
Clip from a comedy podcast on why dessert is gay to order on a first date. I died laughing.
Props to my brother for the rec.
