Sunday’s best #1

The world (aka Internet) is full of listicles and curated newsletters, so why not join the fun? I decided to post a bunch of content on various topics each Sunday, for you to enjoy, share, digest or ignore 🙂

Here it goes:

  • Farnam Street Blog has a great read on creativity boosting and Warren Berger’s process of questioning systems, disrupting familiar ways of thinking and finding new “whys”
  • Do you know why reading evolved along with eating metaphors? From digesting to devouring, here’s an interesting bit.

If you like it, don’t be shy and share away. You never know who you might be helping on the way.
