What I’m reading —
The 3 Ways Ego Will Derail Your Career Before It Really Begins by Ryan Holiday
A great reminder on the importance of keeping our egos in check whether you’re just starting out your career or firmly established in one. I particularly loved how Ryan highlights the importance of purpose over passion.
Documentary I’m enjoying —
Tony Robbins: I Am Not Your Guru on Netflix
I’d always been interested in learning more about Tony Robbins and now there’s a way to get a good look at his flagship program – Date With Destiny – through this new documentary. It’s deeply emotional and satisfying. I watched it again immediately after I finished it.

Productivity tip of the week —
Prioritize exercise to get better sleep
I used to consider exercise a “bonus” during the week. If I got around to it, great. If not, that’s okay because I’ll catch up later. Now, my mindset is different. Exercise is an essential part of my weekly planning as I need it to be able to sleep better and as a consequence be more productive during the week.
Product I’m loving —
If you’re still using plastic water bottles, it may be time to switch. I’ve used my S’well water bottle for about a year now and loved its design and portability. Not to mention you avoid the potential negative effects of BPA and BPAF which companies still use to produce plastic bottles.
