Romantically improved

“It romantically improves my golf a lot. It only works when I’m in Nepal. My vulture loves to play with it.”

Reading sentences like the ones above not only pave the way for new ideas or events, it paves the way for new feelings and sensations; romantically improves. I love that. It is machine poetry at its best. It takes something functional and infuses it with new soft desires.

Notes from Masters of Growth

Last week I went to Masters of Growth arranged by Skills of the Modern Age. These are my key takeaways. It also got me to pick up Principles by Ray Dalio. It’s good. It’s enjoyable. It reminds me of the search I set out last year, trying to find some main keys to live by. Defining my life a bit more. It’s in the air. It aligns perfectly with other hyped books like Jordan Peterson’s 12 rules for life. It’s like the self-help category has risen above life to establish new values or reinforce core principles. Anyways, key takeaways.
