Podcast episode I’m enjoying —

Instead of having a daily to-do list, it may be more effective to have a daily not to-do list. Check out the first recording in the link or Episode 9 in the Tim Ferriss Show in your podcast app.

A quote that’s inspiring me —

Choose not to be harmed — and you won’t feel harmed.

Don’t feel harmed — and you haven’t been.

— Marcus Aurelius

Product I’m loving —

golden pu’erh tea from DAVIDsTEA

The Chinese have been drinking pu’erh (pronounced pooair) for more than 1,700 years. It’s a type of black tea that is traditionally aged underground and known to have a variety of health benefits. It’s also a fantastic replacement for coffee lovers given its dark, earthy taste.
