3 curated ideas for Consistent Productivity based on a common theme

Everyday, we will bring to you a related set of 3 actionable tips, ideas & advice (mostly from Twitter)! These are meant to expand your thinking, knowledge & empower you to be the best version of yourself. The links (people, tools & processes) are also meant to add value :)

Note - We do not include all tweets in a thread sometimes to avoid hitting email limits & readability. You can always access the whole thread by clicking on the 1st tweet. We append (….) in such cases.

Today's theme is: Uncomfortable Comforts

We often fool ourselves & look away from our biases - because it's comfortable (in the moment). But when it comes back to bite us - that's when it gets tough to swallow.

As Richard Feynman (from yesterday) liked to say : The first principle is that you must not fool yourself — and you are the easiest person to fool.”

Here is some bitter sweet food for thought 👉🏻

  1. Dickie (Founder, #Ship30for30) has this thread where he keeps adding his set of "inconvenient truths". PS : You might wanna take breaks when reading it :P

    (….)

  2. "Signaling" is the indirect message we broadcast. Srinivasan Balaji (@balajis) is a respected angel investor. He says it's better to signal "value" then to signal "virtue" or "status".

    Translated, it means it's better to give someone feedback or share learnings than doing a "humble brag" or posting a photo with your shiny new car.

  3. This thread is a blatant reminder of how brutal making right choices is. Things can not go our way and even backfire despite our best intentions.

    Do we really need the added burden or our biases & ignorance? You know the answer.

    (….)

We hope this prompts you out of your comfort zone in some small way and if not, we will do it soon enough ;)

Cheers and see you soon 💫
