Adrian’s Monday Starter : 11

What I’m reading: Eat Real Food by David Gillespie — I’ve read this book and now re-reading pages I need to remember. Essential if you want to find out if margarine is indeed ok to eat or not.

What I’m watching:  When We Rise. — This is epic. Watch it with someone you love.

What I’m listening to: Tell Me Something I Don’t Know by the author of Freakonomics, Stephen Dubner. —Fascinating and equally important stuff I don’t know.

A quote I’m pondering: “There is only one corner of the universe you can be certain of improving, and that’s your own self.” — Aldous Huxley

What I’m reading: I know I shared this last week but I am still reading this and returning to sections that I find really useful. I particularly like the tools around exercise. Gosh, now I’m quite sore but thoroughly enlightened! Tools of Titans, the tactics, routines, and habits of billionaires, icons, and world-class performers by Tim Ferriss. Yes, read it.

What I’m watching: How Great Leaders Inspire Action by Simon Sinek. Probably one of the best Ted Talks I’ve seen. I’ve watched it about 15 times over the last couple of years.

What I’m listening to: No Hollywood for the Visual-Effects Industry on Freakonomics Radio. This podcast is always fascinating to listen to during long drives in the car no matter what the topic is.

Go see: Silence the movie. This film runs for almost 3 hours and can be quite laborious at times. But it’s a deeply thoughtful and revealing look at spirituality/religion and human nature. Fantastic performance by Andrew Garfield. You do forget that he is Spiderman/Peter Parker. :-)


I love food. I wish I was a better cook. I think I can be. I’m good at following recipes.  And I do have a couple of dishes that I can cook well. I just need to add more to my repertoire.

What I’m reading: Tools of Titans, the tactics, routines, and habits of billionaires, icons, and world-class performers by Tim Ferriss. — Fascinating. Mind boggling. Useful.

What I’m watching: Do Schools Kill Creativity? on Ted Talks. — I’m watching this for the nth time. So profound. It’s been viewed over 40 million times.

What I’m listening to: “Is the American Dream Really Dead?” by Freakonomics Radio.

Go see: Perfetti Sconosciuti “Perfect Strangers” — Enjoyably good. It’s impossible to remain indifferent.
