#94 Sources & Inspirations
Taking you to the watering holes that powers Stay Curious
I was traveling this week - attending a wedding, visiting home and eating a lot of good food. That and a hectic work schedule kept me away from my usual reading. And so, there is not much to curate today.
I did not want to miss my Monday post rhythm, so I have taken liberty to do a different post today. This is a curation of sources that help me learn & in turn curate this newsletter. Skip it, if you like. I will be back with the usual posts from next Monday.
For Product Management
Lenny Rachitsky’s “Lenny's Newsletter” & podcast are top of the charts on Substack. And they deserve it. They surface new insights every time. Lenny selects good topics, has access to great guests and asks good questions.
John Cutler’s “The Beautiful Mess” is good for his frameworks, templates and practice advice. His pick of problem statements is spot on on most occasions.
Sidebar sends a daily mail with a curation of 5 links on all things design. It’s focused on web & mobile app design, but surfaces popular posts from other aspects of design as well.
For Data visualization
In their own words, The Pudding is a digital publication that
explains ideas debated in culture with visual essays makes data fun. If you’ve not checked them out, do so right away. They never fail to entertain (and educate) with their stories.
For Stories from India
Every week, FiftyTwo.in publishes an essay that dives deep into an aspect of India’s history, politics and culture. These are things from around us that mostly go unexplored. Good long reads for when you’re in the mood to explore.
For Little moments of joy
Now I Know shares an interesting story every weekday. It’s like a collection of fun & curious observations from real life. Most of them can go unnoticed, unless for folks like Dan Lewis who collect them, research into a beautiful post and share it through this newsletter. His posts are like fun trivia pages, but you will learn something new everyday.
For Thinking Better
Seth Godin may be known as a marketer, but his “Seth's Blog” is a great source on how to think better. He summarizes his observations in amazingly short posts and leaves a punch or two every time.
Shane Parrish’s “Farnam Street” is filled with actionable ideas in a wide variety of areas - from decision making to personal growth. He brings the experts in their field and extracts the best of their learning through his posts and podcasts.
That’s the end of the curation.
I noticed that my last week post had quite an unusually low open rate, so I was wondering if something went wrong there. If you’ve any inputs, do ping me at firstname.lastname@example.org or
If you missed it somehow, I am sharing it below for your reference.
Last but not the least, here’s something that I captured during my visit.
That’s all for this week, folks.
I hope I've earned the privilege of your time.
