Hi there,
I've been busy publishing a blog post each day, 500 words or less, as stated last week. Eight days in and it's been a blast. It's allowing and forcing me to be more vulnerable in my writing than ever before.

Here's a quick preview of each post from this week. Read anything that stands out, and let me know if there's anything that resonates good or bad. If you're interested in following along daily, follow this Twitter thread where I post my latest additions.
 
How To Summarize a Book

In late 2018, trying to remember what I just read is what led me to transform how I handle information and knowledge (and, inevitably, led to this newsletter).

This week Tiago Forte published The Ultimate Guide to Summarizing Books: How to Distill Ideas to Accelerate Your Learning.

Worth a read, it might just you the edge you need over your competition. If you find that worthwhile, it pairs nicely with my guide on how I manage knowledge with my Second Brain.
 
GRVAT Update

I'm running virtually across Tennessee in the Great Virtual Race Across Tennessee 1000k (GRVAT). 634 miles (5 miles/day) between May 1 until August 31st. For the push to the finish, I'm tracking it on a big, visible whiteboard right next to my computer screen.

I had a few rough days last week but gained some ground over the weekend. 70 miles in for the month, the finish line is starting to get closer as my body is showing signs of getting stronger.

Quote of the Week

"Writing, just like all else, is a muscle that can be flexed and built up into a habitual process that eventually flows. Because at its core, writing is simple: it’s a method of sharing your thoughts.

- Steph Smith, Writing is Thinking: Learning to Write With Confidence
Until next week, stay safe, sane, and intentional.

Scott
