    April 18, 2022

    “I recently had an epiphany.

    It wasn’t in the shower. It wasn’t while meditating under a tree. It was while sitting in the bathroom.

    As I held the toilet paper in my hand, I realized that it was single-ply. Clearly, I had long ago decided to save money by cutting this corner. “We are not in a position to indulge in such excesses!” I imagine I might have thought, shifting my shopping gaze from comfy double-ply Charmin to a war-ration house brand of single-ply…” Where Are You Still Using Single-Ply?

  • The Tail End by Tim Urban

    April 15, 2022

    “It turns out that when I graduated from high school, I had already used up 93% of my in-person parent time. I’m now enjoying the last 5% of that time. We’re in the tail end.

    It’s a similar story with my two sisters. After living in a house with them for 10 and 13 years respectively, I now live across the country from both of them and spend maybe 15 days with each of them a year. Hopefully, that leaves us with about 15% of our total hangout time left.

    The same often goes for old friends. In high school, I sat around playing hearts with the same four guys about five days a week. In four years, we probably racked up 700 group hangouts. Now, scattered around the country with totally different lives and schedules, the five of us are in the same room at the same time probably 10 days each decade. The group is in its final 7%.

    So what do we do with this information?…” The Tail End Introduction

    Throughout the day, you spend 10 minutes of your life on each block, until you eventually run out of blocks and it’s time to go to sleep.

    Imagine these blocks laid out on a grid. What if you had to label each one with a purpose?…” – 100 Blocks a Day Introduction

  • 99 Additional Bits of Unsolicited Advice by Kevin Kelly

    April 13, 2022

    “• That thing that made you weird as a kid could make you great as an adult — if you don’t lose it.

    • If you have any doubt at all about being able to carry a load in one trip, do yourself a huge favor and make two trips.

    • What you get by achieving your goals is not as important as what you become by achieving your goals. At your funeral people will not recall what you did; they will only remember how you made them feel.

    • Recipe for success: under-promise and over-deliver.

    • It’s not an apology if it comes with an excuse. It is not a compliment if it comes with a request.

    • Jesus, Superman, and Mother Teresa never made art. Only imperfect beings can make art because art begins in what is broken…” – 99 Additional Bits of Unsolicited Advice Introduction

  • 68 Bits of Unsolicited Advice by Kevin Kelley

    April 12, 2022

    “It’s my birthday. I’m 68. I feel like pulling up a rocking chair and dispensing advice to the young ‘uns. Here are 68 pithy bits of unsolicited advice which I offer as my birthday present to all of you. (For my 69th birthday I made another batch.)

    • Learn how to learn from those you disagree with, or even offend you. See if you can find the truth in what they believe.

    • Being enthusiastic is worth 25 IQ points.

    • Always demand a deadline. A deadline weeds out the extraneous and the ordinary. It prevents you from trying to make it perfect, so you have to make it different. Different is better.

    • Don’t be afraid to ask a question that may sound stupid because 99% of the time everyone else is thinking of the same question and is too embarrassed to ask it.

    • Being able to listen well is a superpower. While listening to someone you love keep asking them “Is there more?”, until there is no more…” – 68 Bits of Unsolicited Advice Introduction
