Why do blind people wear sunglasses? 

I thought of this question today and found some answers from google.

In short, they do it to protect their eyes and for aesthetic reasons


I started reading Austin Kleon's Show your Work and I like this excerpt a lot.  

"I like the tagline at dribbble.com: “What are you working on?” 

Stick to that question and you’ll be good. 

Don’t show your lunch or your latte, show your work."

Also this, 

"Sometimes, amateurs have more to teach us than experts. 

“It often happens that two schoolboys can solve difficulties in their work for one another better than the master can,” wrote author C. S. Lewis. 

“The fellow-pupil can help more than the master because he knows less. The difficulty we want him to explain is one he has recently met. The expert met it so long ago he has forgotten.""

How do we learn better or allow our fellow peers to learn better?


I also realized that though I love listening to podcasts (current favorite: Ali Abdaal's Not Overthinking), I cannot just be idle and listen to it. To be truly absorbed in it, I need to be doing something that requires a low cognitive load such as walking or during a commute. 


Another random and interesting thing I read off Austin Kleon's website is The Vampire Test

I've read about this before and never knew the term for it but it basically means using a test to find out whether to keep this person or thing in your life. 

#3 on Milton Glaser's 10 Rules for Life & Work,  

"To find out if someone is toxic, observe whether you are more or less energized after you meet them. 

If you are more tired then you have been poisoned. 

If you have more energy, you have been nourished."

That's all for today, see you tomorrow!
