A quote I’m pondering on: “What we fear doing most is usually what we most need to do.” — Tim Ferriss

Go see: Brad’s Status — The self-pity is a tad absurd and exhausting but I did enjoy this movie particularly because it makes me reflect on my own life and fatherhood. The kid is awesome. I want my son to turn out like him!

What I’m listening to: Why doesn’t everyone get the flu vaccine by Freakonomics Radio

A quote I’m pondering on: “If we live in a world where information drives what we do, the information we get becomes the most important thing. The person who chooses that information has power.” — Seth Godin

Go see: The Ornithologist — I found this film completely baffling. Deeply cerebral, intriguing and absolutely strange. It’s surely not for everyone but everyone should still see it.

What I’m reading : What’s the problem with feminism? by Mark Manson

What I’m listening to: All About Bugs: TMSIDK

What I’m watching: The Good Place on Netflix — This show is easy to watch. A little bit on the fluffy side. But I’m constantly intrigued about how they want to navigate what “good” and “bad” mean in the world. And I don’t think they’ve worked it out yet. I am a tad annoyed by the portrayal of the Filipino character. He appears immature and stupid throughout the show.

A quote I’m pondering on: “A leader is best when people barely know he exists, when his work is done, his aim fulfilled, they will say: we did it ourselves.” — Lao Tzu

Go see: Battle of the Sexes — Great performances all around. Relevant viewing for an Australian audience too.

A quote I’m pondering on: ”When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be.” — Lao Tzu

Go see: School Life — A wonderful reminder that teachers are indeed the only heroes we need in our everyday lives. This documentary is charming and touching with some beautifully-captured moments.

What I’m reading : What’s the Point of Self-Improvement Anyway? by Mark Manson

What I’m listening to: The Demonization of Gluten by Freakonomics Radio — This is good!

What I’m watching: Star Trek Discovery on Netflix — Omigosh I didn’t think I’d be hooked on this show. I’m not a Star Trek fan at all but this is really good viewing. We watched 3 episodes in a row and had to stop because my 11 year old son had to go to bed! 

A quote I’m pondering on: “You can become successful at something without having much particular talent at it. But you can never become successful at anything without taking action. Ever.” — Mark Manson
