The Smarter You Become, the Less You Speak (Keanu Reeves Edition)

With Keanu Reeves as an example, this post explores the power of being purposefully quiet.

👉 Be Aware of the Quiet Ones like Keanu Reeves — They Are the Ones That Actually Make You Think

Quiet people make you think.
Thinking brings clarity.
Thinking can lead to change.

I actually didn’t know Keanu had this side to him. But it is helpful to be reminded by a Hollywood star of all people that being quite and thoughtful is a good thing.

Being quiet: brings people closer, breeds curiosity, interrupts the pattern, and allows time for reflection.

Not bad, Keanu. Maybe he is the cooler, calmer alter-ego to Russell Brand?

Unofficial Sandwiches

I love the idea and name of this project.

Apple demonstrated how to build an app with SwiftUI by doing a detailed walk-through a Sandwiches app.

👉 Introduction to SwiftUI

But they didn’t give you the code! I guess that’s because they want you to write it yourself. 🤷🏻‍♂️

Still, here is a working unofficial version of the Sandwiches app developed to help you along.

Fun Xcode Search Tip

Here’s a great tip for anyone using Xcode: when you’re going through a list of search results, you can just delete the items you’re not interesting in. 🤯 It’s so weirdly simple and obvious but surprising.

Favorite Austin Hotel Pools

There’s just something about a hotel pool. 🤩 Here are some wet and sunny spots to enjoy around Austin. This picture is of the Austin Motel pool, but many more are listed in the post.

Stonehenge II

Okay, they built a new Stonehenge near San Antonio. It’s just like the real Stonehenge, but hotter and closer. 🤷🏻‍♂️

This is brilliant and stupid at the same time. But mostly brilliant.

I think we can all agree that some Spinal Tap is called for here.

In ancient times, hundreds of years before the dawn of history
Lived a strange race of people, the Druids
No one knows who they were or what they were doing
But their legacy remains
Hewn into the living rock, of Stonehenge
