7 Point Saturday 4/18/2020

Morning! Hope this finds you and a cup of coffee or favorite morning beverage really well. Here’s your 7 for this week.

  1. My awareness of what day it is has been scrambled for some time. All this staying at home and working from home is like a crazy Groundhog Day on repeat. It literally has me for a loop. Interesting piece in VICE on this concept: https://www.vice.com/en_us/article/m7qyev/time-is-meaningless-now?utm_source=pocket&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=pockethits
  2. Speaking of Groundhog Day it is a cult classic. Bill Murray is the main character who relives the day over and over again. Takes the first point above and makes it really interesting. I wanted to know more though about Bill. Super good dude and very wise. Being him? Interesante. Here’s to being: https://getpocket.com/explore/item/being-bill-murray
  3. Food expiration. My wife and I go back and forth on this one a lot. I say most of the time the date on the package is it’s shelf expiration or sell by date. She thinks it means, NO, don’t eat that its spoiled. So, with recent situations what they are, we’re asking this question a lot now. Here’s a great NYT piece that kind of lands the plane with their opinion: https://www.nytimes.com/article/expiration-dates-coronavirus.html?utm_source=pocket&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=pockethits
  4. I choose growth. Always have. It’s served me so well in my life. I describe myself as a ultra-learner. Especially in anything challenging I’ve been able to see it as growth, not an obstacle. Here’s a lot of the reason why I do and maybe you should choose growth more: https://blogs.scientificamerican.com/beautiful-minds/choose-growth/?utm_source=Heleo+Newsletters&utm_campaign=337984eb1b-EMAIL_CAMPAIGN_lift_2020_4_14&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_85eb2ca8d0-337984eb1b-216861537&mc_cid=337984eb1b&mc_eid=a3a9d2bd0b
  5. There are some cultures that exist that have no words or use numbers as part of their cultural language. So how do you describe two people or three people? Easy right, we’d hold out two or three fingers or like I am in this very sentence I’m spelling it out. But what if your culture didn’t use numbers as part of your language at all? Anumeric cultures don’t. Really interesting and only 5 minutes as a read: https://getpocket.com/explore/item/anumeric-people-what-happens-when-a-language-has-no-words-for-numbers
  6. Perfectionism. Have it, live it, or strive for it if you have have it, its hard to manage. Very hard. There can be downsides to it even. I have it and so does my wife. If you are one, you may want to skip this read or if you read it, just know it came from my head as a something I researched to be more self-aware of any dangers to being a perfectionist. Here’s the read and its a longer one at 14 minutes: https://getpocket.com/explore/item/the-dangerous-downsides-of-perfectionism
  7. I’m ending with this last read on food that should never be in the fridge. I’ve always thought some fruits should be in the fridge so they stay fresh longer. But, I was wrong. I learned some food kept in the fridge actually makes it expire quicker. This last one is a quickie at 2 minutes for a read, but like the expiration piece above was enlightening: https://getpocket.com/explore/item/from-ketchup-to-pineapples-the-food-that-should-never-be-kept-in-a-fridge

I hope you enjoy this week’s 7. Be safe, stay healthy, and love any randomness you’ve run into like I have in the comments below. Thanks for reading!
