Shoshin Weekly #1 by Amardeep Parmar

Hey everyone,

Welcome to my first newsletter! I’ll be sharing 7 things I hope will add value to your life this week. It’ll be a mix of my own work and the people inspiring me:

  1. For those unfamiliar with my work, here’s the post I’m proudest of about why we should give ourselves time rather than be patient.

  2. My friend Mike Thompson had terrible confidence having grown up with a stutter but turned it all around. He dissects 4 ways to improve your communication without saying a word.

  3. I’m a regular person and definitely suffer from imposter syndrome. I take comfort that out of context most advice is often wrong but it can still be useful to trigger ideas or inspiration.

  4. Brian Pennie is truly inspiring. He overcame a heroin addiction to become a neuroscientist Ph.D. Here are 12 things he did to make his brain 10 years younger.

  5. One book I loved this week was No Self, No Problem by Chris Niebauer about the link between neuroscience and zen philosophy.

  6. Danny Forest has committed to learning 3 new skills every month for the past few years. He’s released a course about all the learning tricks he discovered.

  7. Finally, here’s a wildcard, a mix I like listening to for a mellow evening. It’s partly in Panjabi but I don’t understand much either. Just enjoy the smoothness of the sound.

Thank you for reading. Every week I’m going to dedicate this to someone and this week it’s my sister Anisha Parmar who reads all my drafts with her eagle eyes.

Have a wonderful day!
