๐Ÿ“š 3 Good Articles for You

How to Do Great Work
by Paul Graham (44 mins)

  • "How to Do Great Work" encourages people to choose work that they have a natural aptitude and deep interest for, that offers scope to do exceptional work.
  • The guide advises learning enough about your chosen field to discover gaps in knowledge and then focusing on filling these gaps.
  • It emphasizes the importance of a strong work ethic but warns against overworking, and encourages embracing both incremental and exponential growth, discovery over creation, and maintaining optimism even in the face of criticism.

Why You Believe The Things You Do
by Morgan Housel (4 mins)

  • People often believe things that help them cope with their circumstances, irrespective of the factual truth.
  • Memories are selectively remembered and shape beliefs, favoring details that fit existing viewpoints and discarding contradictory ones.
  • Changing beliefs is rare due to emotional discomfort and the fear of damaging credibility, despite new contradicting evidence.

Clear Is Kind. Unclear Is Unkind.
by Brenรฉ Brown (3 mins)

  • Leaders need to be braver and cultivate courageous cultures to thrive in complex, rapidly changing environments.
  • Avoidance of difficult conversations, often due to a culture of being "nice," is a barrier to this; such avoidance can cause mistrust and performance decline.
  • The concept of "clear is kind, unclear is unkind" encourages direct, honest communication, and the term "rumble" denotes a commitment to vulnerability and active listening in tough conversations.
