This Is The Most Fun Way To Make Your Life Awesome
by Eric Barker (9 min)
Humor can have profound effects on our lives, from improving relationships to boosting creativity and signaling intelligence. It can also help us cope with stress and reduce pain. Good humor often has a perspective and points out what's wrong or inconsistent with the world. Always consider the context and audience when making jokes, as inappropriate humor can have negative effects.

People Make Time for What They Want β€” Rightfully So
by Nir Eyal (3 min)
People make time for what they want, and it's important to be mindful of who and what we give our time to. We must be careful to pick quality relationships over quantity, and ensure that the values of the people in our life don't conflict with our own. It's essential to make time only for people who enable us to pursue traction. It's our right to make time for what we want.

Many wisdoms
by Avram Alpert (14 min)
Wisdom is not only about what we share as humans, but also being able to work through our differences reasonably. Wisdom requires travel, as truths that are not known in one place may be known in another. Difference does not lead to relativism, but to a quest to share knowledge. Being wise means using our understanding of the natural and social worlds to develop the human institutions that can lift us up.
