Saturday Snippets (June 26)

Go Outside Your ‘tribe’

I’m not a fan of labels. But that’s probably a whole different blog post in itself. Labels don’t often fit. They can cause misunderstanding where it doesn’t exists. But labels also create the potential danger that we only gather around likeminded people and create a hive mind, in the negative sense. This is usually calledContinue reading “Go Outside Your ‘tribe’”

Listen To Various Voices

The last few weeks and months have been a very interesting time to be alive. It’s been a very strange time with people on two sides of an issue slinging mud at each other.

Endorsements, do we really need them?

Over the years of my current reading pattern I’ve realised my approach to books has changed. One of those changes is the role that endorsements play. At the beginning I would first look at who endorses a book before I’d decide to read it. Now I only ever read the endorsements after I’ve finished theContinue reading “Endorsements, do we really need them?”
