Fridays @ Five: Five Things We Loved this Week
Every Friday, we send out an exclusive list of five unique or interesting things we’ve found (or explored) around the web during the week.
It may include books, gadgets, albums, articles, new hacks/tricks, and — of course — all sorts of weird stuff we dig up around the web. It’s often focused on Intuitive things and personal growth. Please feel free to spread the word with friends who would also enjoy.
Here’s some great stuff to check out over the coming weekend…
In this article for the Washington Post, Neil Howe discusses his book “The Fourth Turning” and how, almost 20 years later, his and Strauss’s ideas have affected modern culture. It was fascinating to read the predictions from Howe recontextualized in current political events. I don’t suggest reading the comments though.
Crash Course is an education channel created by brothers John and Hank Green. There are playlists on topics from anatomy to philosophy, and in my opinion, serve as a great, free resource for education. They just started a series covering mythology and the kinds of creation myths humans tell each other to make sense of our world. It’s fantastic. Go check it out.
I’ve talked pretty extensively about my love for Caitlin Doughty. She is the founder of the Order of the Good Death, the owner of an alternative funeral home, star of “Ask A Mortician” on Youtube, and author of one of my favorite books–Smoke Gets in Your Eyes. This fall, she will be adding on another book title to her list of accomplishments. In anticipation of her upcoming novel about death rituals around the world, Haute Macabre interviewed her about some of her favorite stories from her book.
I generally try to stay away from purchasable items in favor of information, but I found these prints that are a representation of global spiral dynamic memes….and they’re too cool. Look at them. Hang ‘em on your wall so your friends know you’re cool.
I know that typing a notable figure without formally profiling them means that any type you give them will never *really* be accurate. With that said, this article was a really interesting read for me (an Exploration driver) about how Perspectives and Effectiveness come into play for Elon Musk to accomplish a goal (in this case, preventing AI from taking over the world and destroying humanity.)
So there you have it. Of course these picks reflect some of my personal biases and interests – but having hung around the Personality Hacker community for a while now – and being personal growth focused – I’m pretty sure you will find at least one thing from the above list to be interesting.
Also – leave a comment or your thoughts below. Love to hear what you think.
