Shoshin Weekly #2 by Amardeep Parmar

Hey everyone,

Welcome to my second newsletter, thank you to everyone who shared with their friends last week! Here are 7 things I think will add value to your life this week:

  1. I was #1 trending on Medium this week with this story about the only four books Bill Gates has rated 5 stars. My personal favorite on the list is “Enlightenment Now!”

  2. As a throwback, this is one of my first pieces about different Japanese mindsets to help you live intentionally.

  3. Niklas Goeke is one of my favorite writers and I loved this thought-provoking piece on what really matters to him.

  4. I had the pleasure of catching up with my friend Todd Brison last week who is on form with his creativity advice as always. If you’re in a rut, his book might inspire you.

  5. Try “A Man Called Ove”, it’s a heartwarming story of an old man who discovers new reasons to keep loving life.

  6. If you fancy listening to a podcast, try Guy Raz’s interview with the Headspace founders. One of them, Andy Puddicombe, was a monk for 10 years and gave up all his possessions!

  7. Check out the calm aura of Master Shi Heng Yi in his 5 Hindrances To Self-Mastery TED Talk.

Thank you for reading. Every week I’m going to dedicate this to someone and this week it’s Zita Fontaine, author of “A Box Full Of Darkness”, who helped me out a lot when I started. Her chosen charity is UNICEF.

Have a wonderful day!
