126: Inbox Non-Zero

How to become less addicted to notifications and badges. The thing is: they're designed to make us react. Every time we see there's a new message, we check it out.

123: So Good They Can’t Ignore You

Listen on YouTube Just follow your passion, right? … No. Unless you’re already highly skilled at something you’re passionate about, following your passion will only drive you to be miserable.
