I recommend Readwise

If you’re an avid reader like I am, I heartily recommend Readwise.io

Every day I read through 15 or more of the highlights (and associated notes) I’ve made from things I’ve read (books, articles, tweets). It’s a great way to retain the best information, reflect on lessons, and synthesize new ideas from different sources.

I also export my book highlights into my books pages (that’s where you will sometimes see a “exported notes and highlights” section on nonfiction). If I listened to the audiobook, I’ll hand jot some notes instead, but I opt in for seeing other peoples top highlights in Readwise for those books. Those stylized graphics I use for quotes? Also courtesy of Readwise!

For daily reviews, I’m #54 on the leaderboard and determined to get to the top.

🚲 to Chris’s 🍨🌮 for lunch. Best idea.

Hi Apple Watch 👋

Very nice to meet you. Really excited about all the cool exercise stuff we’re doing. One request though:

Could you maybe not give me stand up reminders when we are in sleep mode? kthxbye

I’m hearing more and more “Indunapliss”

Could we not?

Even better we could come up with a new city name?

🎶 Did You Know?

It’s not officially Autumn until you’ve listened to Opeth’s Blackwater Park straight through.

I think part of the joy of 🚲 is that it forces you to be mindful and present in the moment.

(Sadly this is because you are constantly aware of your surroundings to help ensure you don’t get murdert.)
