It’s so good that I am just going to summarize it and quote it a lot right here per my own goals, but you should read it for yourself.
You Don’t Need A Bunch of Money – But making money encourages personal growth and gives you freedom and peace of mind. And the personal growth keeps you away from bad jobs, bad bosses, and bad commutes.
You Don’t Need to “Find Your Passion” – Just be good at something. Passion comes from being good at something, not the other way around. Being good at decent job can get you autonomy, a sense of meaning, and a positive work environment.
If you want to love what you do, abandon the passion mindset (“what can the world offer me?”) and instead adopt the craftsman mindset (“what can I offer the world?”).
You Don’t Need Everyone to Like You – “The best way to get other people to like you is to learn how to like yourself.”
You Don’t Need (Or Even Want) to Be Famous – “What can you pursue if fame isn’t the answer? Pursue building a tribe instead.”
I think everybody should get rich and famous and do everything they ever dreamed of so they can see that it’s not the answer.
You Don’t Need Your Life to be a Movie – “You want a feeling of accomplishment, growth, and the pride that comes from following through with your goals.”
The secret of leadership is simple: Do what you believe in. Paint a picture of the future. Go there. People will follow.
Motion is an animation engine for gesturally-driven user interfaces, animations, and interactions on iOS, macOS, and tvOS.
I’ve been a little skeptical of open-source animation platforms since I had to toss out one app and then another as cocos2d morphed into cocosd2x and broke everything. Damn that x! But still, this looks cool. 👆
At the time, five months after the Declaration of Independence, the new American army had seen defeat after defeat and was 90% destroyed. Thus the gloomy atmosphere with a hint of sunshine in the background.
The painting was made by German-American painter Emanuel Leutze in 1850 with a goal of promoting democracy in Europe and fighting slavery in the United States. 🤩
The painting makes efforts to show all kinds of people from all over America literally in the same boat together. This includes a black man, a big statement back in 1850 during slavery. The paining was used for abolition fundraising.
The copy in NYC was the second one painted by Leutze. The first went to his native Germany and was destroyed by a British bombing raid during World War II — Britain’s final revenge on the American revolution. 😆
Here’s a little Christmas present of sorts for us iOS developers: a fresh new SwiftUI tutorial from Apple. The whole course takes about 4 hours and lets you build a niceeeee-looking scrum app from scratch. 🤩
