Shoshin Weekly #5 by Amardeep Parmar

Hey everyone,

Welcome to my fifth 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. Dr. Chatterjee’s podcast interview with Daniel Lieberman was full of wow moments for me about the psychology behind laziness.

  2. Yesterday I wrote about Warren Buffett’s tests to determine integrity. I think it’s something we all struggle with and made sure to look at the nuance.

  3. Here are 28 of my favorite quotes :)

  4. 2020 put a dent in many people’s ambitions but Sean Kernan makes the great point that a mediocre life can be awesome.

  5. I loved The Beekeeper of Aleppo which humanizes people who have been reduced to numbers on the news.

  6. Mike Thompson drew my attention to Rodney Smith Jr., who has inspired mass volunteering across the USA from a simple act of kindness.

  7. If you fancy something totally left-field which will make you smile, check out the ecstasy in this traditional Panjabi dance.

Thank you for reading. Every week I’m going to dedicate this to someone and this week it’s to my colleague and friend Dan who has always been willing to listen when I need advice.

Have a wonderful day!
