This week’s newsletter covers the two big topics: time and money. How do we choose to spend them? What do we choose to spend them on? Are we making the right decisions, and whether or not we are, how do we tell? This week’s reads explore everything from how a question has the power to get your friends and family to put their devices down and why silence is among the creative’s best friends. Then there’s whether we put our money (and our time) where our mouth is on diversity, equity and inclusion. Finally, there’s a visual breakdown of the vast pool of cognitive biases in to four main categories.

"In the last few years, and with greater intensity in the last 12 months, people started paying for online content. They are doing so at an accelerating pace, and on a dependable, recurring schedule, often through subscriptions. And they’re paying for everything." (Image)
Thinking is hard.
