Feeling Meh?

Good news, TLDR, and content on both personal and business growth

July 4, 2022

Hi & Happy 4th of July to my American friends! πŸŽ†

I hope you’re having a great Monday, and if not - I feel you. With my recent trip, it feels like June was non-existent. Now it’s already July, it’s hot and everyone is already on or planning to go on their holidays. Don’t know if it’s just me, but being productive feels like a mission impossible these days.

Since an interesting article has the power to inspire, I invite you to dive into this week's selection together and try to find the right fit for your current mood πŸ€ž

⚑ Spotlight

Future Crunch

While some believe that the world is going crazy and everything’s going down the hill, the reality is much brighter. The world is a better place than it has ever been. We’re wealthier, healthier, and better informed than ever before. 🌱 At the same time, the information we consume lets us easily fall for the latest (and usually very negative) headlines and lose sight of the bigger picture.

πŸ‘©‍πŸ”¬ That's when Future Crunch steps in. FC is an Australian-based organization consisting of scientists, artists, technologists, and entrepreneurs who wish to provide people with positive news about change and progress. 

The Future Crunch newsletter provides a mental break from all the negativity in hopes of making people think more optimistically about the future.

From stories on a refugee camp where residents are using machines to turn plastic waste into furniture and the decline in COVID-19 deaths, to the improved inequality problem in America and the 40% decline in China’s air pollution.

Read an example issue and subscribe for the positive future outlook and good news you probably haven’t heard of!

☝️ Worth Reading

While doing research on Rob Henderson’s Newsletter I stumbled upon an issue discussing the concept of “Luxury Beliefs are Status Symbols”. The author gives an interesting take on expressing luxury beliefs instead of purchasing luxury goods to signal one’s status.

“…today, because material goods have become a noisier signal of one’s social position and economic resources, the affluent have decoupled social status from goods and re-attached it to beliefs.”

Read the issue on Luxury Beliefs and subscribe to Rob’s newsletter to explore the modern approach to social justice, culture, and habits of the social elite.
