Conscious Culture 52: Information Diet
Dec 09, 2021 5:55 am
Welcome to Conscious Culture, a weekly newsletter full of interesting reads for curious, intelligent people who want to sharpen their minds
It's been one year since I started this newsletter.
I'm grateful to you for allowing me to send you information every week. Austin Kleon said, "You are a mashup of what you let into your life."
My goal with Conscious Culture is to be your filter system and only send you information that is interesting, meaningful, creative, and intellectually stimulating. That being said, please me know how I can improve as a curator and send you information that will help you grow.
This week's newsletter explores ideas on:
- How to go on an information diet
- Performing well under pressure
- Being successful
- Feeling progress
- How introverts can increase their energy
Feel free to hit reply and let me know what you think.
"While it’s important to stay informed, too much information can become confusing, anxiety-inducing, and plain counter-productive. The same way you try to eat healthy to improve your physical health, going on an information diet is a way to control what you consume to take care of your mental health."
"Ditch the tough talk, it won’t help. Instead cultivate your mental flexibility so you can handle whatever comes your way"
"You don't want to be in a career where people who have been doing it for two years can be as effective as people who have been doing it for twenty—your rate of learning should always be high."
"If you want to feel progress, you have to track it. Most of us make advances small and large every single day, but we fail to notice them."
"As an introvert, learning how to recharge, protect, and increase your energy is vital to taking care of yourself. Learn how!"
Tools and Resources
"A browser extension that shows you how long you worked before you make a purchase. Reprogram your purchasing habits, live consciously and help the environment."
"ParseHub is a free web scraping tool. Turn any site into a spreadsheet or API. As easy as clicking on the data you want to extract."
"Learn digital art with instant feedback"
"Create your own AI-powered artwork."
