πŸ“š This Week's Reading List

Seeing vs. readingby Ralph Ammer (3min)
An ancient feud rages at the very core of your creative endeavor: The rational logical you and its fuzzy intuitive rival are in constant dispute. Many bigger and smaller dramas in our creative process can be ascribed to conflicts between those two different mindsets.

Expression is Compressionby David Perell (7min)
Experiences become shareable creations the way tree sap becomes maple syrup. It takes 50 gallons of sap to make one gallon of syrup. So whenever I feel like I don’t have enough ideas to create something meaningful, I go collect more experiences and spend time processing them by writing and talking to friends. If a story can’t get to the point, it will lose the audience’s attention. The process of gathering ideas and distilling them into a smaller, more compressed form is the essence of creative excellence.

Knowledge gardening is recursive by Gordon Brander (2min)
Knowledge gardening is one kind of system for generating self-organizing ideas. As a kind of self-organizing system, it can’t happen without some kind of feedback loop. Capture, Organize, Synthesize β€” one kind of creative feedback loop. But the feedback loops of most note-taking apps are broken, or non-existent. Over time, little recursive acts of watering and weeding accumulate. Useful knowledge grows from the ground up.
