Start your Monday off right:
- Have you ever imagined what the world's great theaters look like standing at the back the stage looking into seats? Klaus Frahm answered the question. I love how different those theaters seem from their non-public view.
- The fascinating story of the Lucky Iron Fish is halving anemia cases in Cambodia. An elegantly simple solution with a profound impact on the lives of countless people.
- Do you collect Answers or Questions? An absolutely brilliant web comic
- Climbing mountains interests me in that "I would love to do it (aka complete it) but would be terrified to actually do it" kind of way. Free climbing (aka climbing without any safety gear) is beyond crazy to me. Jon Glassberg beautiful documents Emily Harrington's ascent up El Capitan.
"DON’T WASTE YOURSELF IN REJECTION, NOR BARK AGAINST THE BAD, BUT CHANT THE BEAUTY OF THE GOOD."
Ralph Waldo Emerson
With the pace of life seemingly quicken with each passing year, more time and effort is spent on achieving a state of balance between work and life. An interesting video raises the question of whether our brains are actually not designed for balance.
During Misfit Conference this year, I had the absolute pleasure of meeting John Sweeney. He is preaching the power of kindness to create tremendous change in people's lives. His TEDX talk, "Why Kindness Matters" and "How Kindness Became Our Forbidden Pleasure" by Maria Popova (aka Brain Pickings) pair beautifully together.
