Taking a break🙄

Wisdom Letter #87

Hello dear reader👋

How is it going?

It’s crazy here in India.

Covid is rampaging through the country, we are hearing of people all around us getting infected and dying from the virus.

Amidst the chaos, we have decided to take a break for a few weeks.

We won’t be writing a lot of new stuff during this period. Will mostly be sending some recommendations every week.


📺 Soul

To lift our spirits up a bit, we watched the movie Soul recently. It’s a nice warm cozy film. Brilliant storytelling and visuals from Disney. Watch if you haven’t.

I’d say, watch it even if you have already watched it.

Times like these, need movies like these. Stream it on Disney.

Watch the trailer on Youtube.

📗 On The Shortness of Life

This is a thin 100-page book from the ancient philosopher Seneca. We get around to this book at least once every year.

It just helps get some perspective on life. In uncertain times like these, life can seem unreasonably short.

But as the subtitle of the book says — Life is long if you know how to use it.

📝 Lifestyle First Business

Are you an entrepreneur? Or want to become one?

Entrepreneurship has this taboo surrounding it, that once you get into it you must sacrifice your peace of mind and life with it.

Well, that’s not true.

A few weeks back we wrote some notes from Daniel Vassallo’s podcast appearance on the Indie Hackers podcast.

He is the guy who quit a $500K job from Amazon to do his own thing. His mantra is this👇

“I want to work on my own terms, doing the things that intrinsically motivate me.”

That pretty much sums up our approach to solopreneurship as well. Ultimately we only want to do things that intrinsically motivate us. (This newsletter is one of them 😀)

Thank You for reading🙏

Will be back next week with a few more recommendations.

In the meantime, if you find some interesting blogs, articles, books, movies we should be consuming, send them through.

Anything that helps make more sense of these crazy times is welcome.

See you then, next week.

bye,

Ayush & Aditi
