5 Share Friday 13 Sept 2019

It’s back! After a break for a couple of weeks 5 Share Friday is back in your life. Guaranteed to come with more goodness than a goji berry and more excitement than a bungee jump off a bridge in New Zealand*

*actually more hope than a guarantee 

Quote I’m pondering – “In my whole life, I have known no wise people (over a broad subject matter area) who didn’t read all the time — none. Zero.” — Charlie Munger, Warren Buffett’s longtime business partner.

The quickest path to happiness – In my quest to identify what makes us happy, I’ve found Amy Blaschka has nailed some great questions to ask ourselves. It’s primarily about perspective and you can read it in full here at Forbes.

New favourite appNoisli enables me to mix and match my own soundtrack for productivity or relaxing. It’s a noise generator with sounds like rain, thunderstorms, wind, waves, birds and more. I’m finding it’s helping create an environment where I can focus no matter what’s going on around me. It also works offline so no internet required. Try it and see! (Free sounds via the website, small fee for the app)

Book I’m reading – My wife gifted me a book a few weeks ago. She randomly found it and instantly knew I’d want to read it. What’s it about? Well the title of the book says it all and I’ll say this, if you like Sonic the hedgehog and the Beatles this is definitely for you: Sonic the Hedgehog and The Beatles: A Comparative Analysis of the Games and Music

I hope you have a fantastic weekend doing the things you enjoy with the people you love.
