"You can’t connect the dots looking forward you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something: your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. Because believing that the dots will connect down the road will give you the confidence to follow your heart, even when it leads you off the well worn path."

— Steve Jobs. Stanford Commencement Address, 2005 (via bijan)

I’ve just started reading Essentialism by Greg McKeown. 
This image arrives early in the book and is reenforced throughout.
Our Energy, Time and Attention are limited resources. We can chose to spread them wide and shallow or go narrow and deep on a small number of things.
Essentialism is built around the latter.

Snap, continued.
Since that last post on Snapchat, I’ve actually been using it even more than ever. It also definitely feels like more of my friends are back on it too. Perhaps it was due to my post and our conversations that they’re back on and equally curious. Or perhaps it’s because I pay more attention to Stories now and therefore see more of them from others.
I was talking to a friend about capturing moments, either to share with friends or to share via Stories and I realized one more interesting thing about Snapchat:
It’s that Snapchat is more like actual human conversation than anything else. Messages are posted and then they go away, much like you talking to a friend in real life. You say something in the moment, it gets heard and then it disappears - the only residue is what’s in your friend’s memory.
Indeed, I have been using Snapchat so much now to capture so many moments throughout the day into Stories that I wish the iOS lockscreen would allow me to swap in a different app as the default camera swipe action.

Accessing different apps via the lockscreen is one reason I’m bullish on launchers.

I’ve always been fascinated by scoffing. It’s such a weird human reaction. It’s wanting to say something is stupid without directly saying it. Or sometimes without saying anything at all. The key is contempt. You simply cannot be bothered to even find the fucks to give.

We see this a lot in the…

So true.
