In an effort to help me keep up with everything I post each week, here is my latest “Sunday Summary” of my posts from the week.

Mon, September 18: Digitally prepping for a trip
Here are some things that I’m doing to get my digital pieces in order before I head off on a couple of trips in the coming weeks.

Tue, September 19: Let’s do this again next week
There are some shows and podcasts that I’d love to see produced more often, but without the real work between shows the quality would likely suffer fast.

Wed, September 20: The signal and the message
When trying to remember something there are two basic parts to it, the signal and the message. Both are essential.

Thu, September 21: Technology changes the focus of our brain
As technology solves more things for us (like worrying about the valves in your car), it frees you up to handle new ideas and problems.

Fri, September 22: Readwise at the end
I have a number of tools that use every day when I have down time, and the Readwise “Daily Review” is now a big part of that list

Sat, September 23: Yes, AI will take some jobs
AI is undoubtedly going to take some jobs in the coming years, but it’s likely to create new ones as well. Here’s a bit about how I see it working out.

I hope you found some value in this. If you ever have questions, ideas, or disagreements regarding anything I write, please don’t hesitate to reach out.
