Good Monday 👋
This week, I let my curiosity guide me. I started off by searching for a trustworthy source of information to feed my latest interest in longevity. Amazed how much more fun it is to research something that scratches your own itch, I moved on to looking for other sources of inspiration. What I end up founding were two writers who both curate to spark creativity.
I wondered, does aimless curiosity lead to creativity? Or is it the other way around?
In today's issue, you’ll get to know an MD/Athlete who explores the science of longevity, writers who want to spark your curiosity, and an ambitious entrepreneur who grew his newsletter into a multi-million dollar media company.
Can you guess the newsletters?
Peter Attia Newsletter
Recently I have been reading more and more about longevity. Consequently, the name Peter Attia has been popping up quite frequently. Hearing a lot of praise from Tim Ferris, a man who lives to experiment with his body, I decided to dig in.
Dr. Peter Attia is a physician focusing on the applied science of longevity. His career in medicine, as a scientist and experience as an ultra-endurance athlete, lends him a unique perspective. During the deep-dives on his podcast, Dr. Attia interviews experts to offer some insight to help optimize performance and health. And while he blogs, he explores the limitations of science, human behavior, and other more simple concepts like…fasting or ketosis! 🥑
Dr. Peter Attia produces a lot of content so if you want to keep up, you will need to subscribe to the newsletter. It takes a form of a ‘summary’ and includes an intro to a recent article, an overview of a podcast episode as well as links to related content.
Whether you’re a die-hard fan of longevity, looking for the correct rapamycin dosage, or someone just interested in leading a healthier life - you will find what you looking for. Peter Attia translates the science of longevity into something more digestible for everyone. 💪

Austin Kleon is the author of multiple NYT bestselling books on creativity. He blogs every day and curates a list of 10 things he finds interesting every week.
Being a writer who draws, the author sparks your curiosity by visually narrating different tips and tricks. Think of a technique on how to make a map of your mind or exercises to help you feel thankful. In addition to these creative bursts, you will find links to articles on how a book is made, music recommendations, original reviews of moby dick and so much more art-related content.
A serial entrepreneur Sam Parr is the founder of the Hustle and a co-host of the My First Million podcast. The story goes like this - he wanted to meet smart people who could help him start a business. In order to get them interested, Sam needed something more, something to draw their attention. So he created a newsletter. Long story short - the event (HustleCon) turned out to be pretty popular and “the emails took a life of their own”.
The Hustle is a daily newsletter written for innovators of every industry. Every issue consists of a highlight on The Big Idea, where the team zooms in and out on a relevant issue, snippets on what’s going on in the world (and the web), and some bonus material like the Stat/Tweet of The Day or a Free Resource (like sales email template).
Jocelyn K. Glei launched the newsletter to compliment her writing career. Specializing in creative work in the age of distraction, Jocelyn K. Glei is used to searching for signal in this crazy world.
Once a month the author sends out a curated email to help you find meaning in your daily life and work. Whether it’s on burnout, friendship, communities, or prescribed perfectionism, the newsletter is always full of impactful content pieces to read or listen to.
