All Very Relatable

Newsletters on personal development, life & getting most out of it

Aug 12, 2022

Hello there!

Missed me on Monday? That was actually intentional πŸ‘€

Last Monday I was on one of those productivity bursts (it doesn’t happen so often, so I leaned into it) and it kind of hit me - who wants to explore interesting newsletters on Monday? You’re starting a new week, planning your tasks, and trying to squeeze the most out of your fresh headspace. A newsletter full of creative writing might not be the thing that you look for on Mondays. But what about Fridays?

Nothing is definite yet, but I think we can try it on 😎

Moving to this week's selection - I don't know about you, but I love content that is relatable. It just hits differently. And this week it’s all about that personal content that you can relate to. Buckle up and start exploring! πŸš€

✨ Spotlight

Life Reimagined

First, I discovered Steph Smith, then I discovered Sh*t you don’t learn at school podcast, and with it - Calvin Rosser. He’s a co-host of the pod, marketer, writer, and in general, a very bright guy. I really enjoyed listening to their conversations, so I was pumped to learn he has a newsletter of his own! 

With the Life Reimagined newsletter, Calvin hopes to drive people to take action by changing their behavior and reframing their perspective on happy, healthy living. He tackles a range of topics he comes across and shares his thoughts, including what he’s researching and reading.

Expect thoughtfully chosen articles, book notes, ideas, and resources to help you maintain relationships, improve your financial situation, and better your mental health. You’ll explore relatable and practical writings on The Problem of Student Debt, Innovative Technology, and How to Get Out of a Rut When You’re Emotionally Drained.

Start with an article listing 40 Unconventional Pieces of Advice That Most People Ignore and subscribe for a little boost that will encourage you to cherish the little things and take one step at a time to a better life.

☝️ Worth Reading

Artur Lapinsch is a former war refugee & startup founder, marketing consultant, and climate tech researcher who occasionally invests. He started Delphi Zero out of frustration with the lack of awareness of the climate crisis. 

Wanting to play his part, he weighed in to educate the general public on how to fight the biggest challenge of our generation. By exploring opportunities, providing solutions, and creating community, he wishes to inspire people towards a net zero future.

I recommend reading the sci-fi short story the House of Day Zero to get inspired to take action.

Have the best week ✨
