Shoshin Weekly #6 by Amardeep Parmar

Hey everyone,

Welcome to my sixth 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’ve got an issue with a quote by Confucius where you always seek people above you so I make the case for being the smartest person in the room more often.

  2. Dr. Vivek Murthy, the former Surgeon General for Obama, has some fascinating insights into how to combat the loneliness pandemic in Dr. Chatterjee’s podcast.

  3. We’ve all seen the tension in America post-election and hopefully rational though will win. I recommend A Righteous Mind: Why Good People Are Divided By Religion And Politics.

  4. I know it’s a source of stress for people that they haven’t been able to achieve their goals in 2020. Stephen Moore shows why a slow build career isn’t something to be ashamed of.

  5. My friend Jake Daghe writes about the importance of holding the canvas for others to let them shine.

  6. On one of my travels, I met someone who was a political refugee and their story left a lasting impression on me.

  7. Yesterday was Diwali so a belated congratulations. Here’s the UK Prime Minister’s message to the public, mainly notable for how weirdly he pronounces the names of Indian snacks!

Thank you for reading. Every week I’m going to dedicate this to someone and this week it’s to my Dad who has always been an inspiration and idol to me.

Have a wonderful day!
