Weekly newsletter helping people navigate in this disoriented world, make progress and become more rational.
Hello online friends,
I’m Ivaylo Durmonski and this is the 8th edition of Unstuck, a weekly newsletter designed to help people navigate in this disoriented world, make progress and become more rational. By sharing the lessons I learn from the books I read (and other interesting things), I want to help more people find direction in this directionless world.
The highlight of this week’s email is internet rabbit holes. Because, you know, we’re all (hopefully) stuck in our homes and we’re looking for things to do. And the go-to place when you can’t go outside and meet people is roaming the depths of the internet.
Yep, if a couple of weeks ago your spouse was constantly nagging you about spending too much time glued on your phone, she’s now right next to you doing the same thing. Looking for ways to entertain herself because she’s tired of watching your sorry ass wearing the same pajamas for two weeks in a roll.
Sadly, this activity, when not contained in some way, has the ability to destroy your already fragile attention span. The more time you spend mindlessly hopping from one internet rabbit hole to another, the more your ability to concentrate suffers.
And since I’m worried about your well-being, I wrote a 2000 words article about this. Share it with your friends if you think they have the same problem as you do. Who am I kidding – they surely have the same problem. So, just send them the damn article. There are also pictures inside.
But before this, let’s see the book summary of the week:
Quiet by Susan Cain: You think that there’s only a place in this world for extroverts? That’s not the case. In the book Quiet, Susan Cain explains how introverts can take advantage of their silence and win the day. If you are a loner yourself, you’ll surely like this book.
Thin Slices of Anxiety: A short illustrated guide that will help you break out of worry and feel a lot better in your own skin.
Thank you for making it to the end!
Hope you’re all healthy and safely reading this from the comfort of your homes!
