Running Towards Danger*




The best 13 minutes on leadership I've seen to date: *14:30 to 27:24.

Necessary SPOILERS: (1) Here's the best [graphic, not suitable for children] rebuttal of the idea that texts are 'too easy' (Sinek's words) to fully convey emotion.
(2) re Alpha--Omega: Safe to say free choice, moral comprehension*, theory of mind ---  progress,* wisdom*, justice*, retribution --- are all well suited to keeping all manner of dubiousness (hierarchical and otherwise) generally in check.

Btw / Note to Self: Exceptional minds -- from Newton to Darwin to Wozniak -- as a rule, are significantly less pompous than their peers.
( just fyi. )

(3)  Re "Work (stress) is killing us," here's a great related post:
The McGonogal Sisters: 'Make Stress Your Friend and Live Ten Years Longer' (!!)

And speaking of dubiousness (4), turns out the jury's still deadlocked on whether or not menstrual syncing is noise or signal. (See This American Life #630; Act 4: 'Period Drama'.)

Addendum:

And here's one of my all-time favourite talks on entrepreneurship, and the importance of not getting carried away with the perceptions of bystanders:



Elmira's own (💘) on Malcolm McClean* and the implementation of modern container shipping.

ps / *btw: McClean started his business in 1935 --- arguably at the peak of the worst, prolonged period of economic stagnation in modern history.
