🎧 1. Podcast Episode I Loved – Cal Newport on The Tim Ferriss Show
My favorite podcast episode of 2022 (so far).
It features two authors on my top 5 productivity books list:

Cal Newport, author of Digital Minimalism.
Talking for two hours and eleven minutes.

I talk a lot about spending money to buy time.
It starts with the story of a man making $750,000 a year, who still goes shopping at the grocery store.

Now that is a problem.

✈️ 4. The One Thing I Never Step On An Airplane Without – Foot Rubz Foot Massage Ball
This tiny $10 massage ball is the truth.
It uses acupressure to relax muscles, reduce tension, and increase circulation.
It’s especially helpful for long cross-country flights.
If this thing isn’t in my bag when we travel, I’m not a happy camper.
