Inspiring article from people who are on the trenches.

My job and hobbies require me to use mostly my mind, not my body. However, no matter how much I change my routines I keep starting my days with exercise. Why? The days I don't do that my mind becomes much more lazy and I find it harder to get important things done.
Powering through an extraordinarily grueling workout or competition has as much to do with mental toughness as it does strength and athleticism. So, how do the toughest competitors do it? We found out!

Stop planning, be more mindful and deploy or die.

“Remember before the internet?” asks Joi Ito. “Remember when people used to try to predict the future?” In this engaging talk, the head of the MIT Media Lab skips the future predictions and instead shares a new approach to creating in the moment: building quickly and improving constantly, without waiting for permission or for proof that you have the right idea.

#plato   #philosophy  

"Everyone pretty much likes beautiful things but Plato was the first to ask why do we like them? He found a fascinating reason: beautiful objects are whispering important truths to us about the good life. We find things beautiful when we sense qualities in them that we need but are constantly missing in our lives: gentleness; harmony; balance; peace; (and) strength. Beautiful objects therefore have a really important function: they help to educate our souls."

This is how gravity really works. I can imagine Galileo's expression if he could watch this.

Artists Jeroen Koolhaas and Dre Urhahn create community art by painting entire neighborhoods, and involving those who live there — from the favelas of Rio to the streets of North Philadelphia. What's made their projects succeed? In this funny and inspiring talk, the artists explain their art-first approach — and the importance of a neighborhood barbecue.
