I like to start my day with a little cup of coffee — espresso. It makes my day better, wakes me up and fills me with energy.

And while I sit there, enjoying the taste of the roasted coffee beans, I tend to read/listen to something that widens my knowledge. So I decided to write something especially for occasions like this.

Think of this quick article as a small espresso shot for your brain.

Here are the three things I want to share with you every week:

1. Something I am currently reading

My relentless quest to turn my life into a game by Luke Mac

Luke talks about how we came up with the idea to improve his life by using principles from video games. In a quick, 10-min article Luke guides you through his process of creating a game out of his life.

I've been fascinated by using principles of videos games in my own life, and this article was a huge inspiration.
Read Luke's article on Medium.com

2. Quote or thought that stuck with me

“Achieving life happiness is all about learning to be happy on a routine weekday.” — Tim Urban

Being full of joy and happiness on the amazing days filled with success, or on a vacation is easy. Being happy for life comes from the ability to enjoy even the average, routine weekday.

Don't live for the weekends, don't live for the “I just sold a huge client” days, don't live for the “I am in Bali, drinking coconut water from a coconut while lying in a net on a beach” days.

Live for all the other days as well, there will certainly be more of them.

3. Interesting app/product/service I am using


Unsplash is definitely on my list of all-time favorite apps ever. And I am not exaggerating.

This website is basically a huge database of free-to-use, high-quality photographs. I even used it for this article's cover photo. One of the handiest tools for any content creator out there.

Check it out on Unsplash.com

That’s it for today. See you next week!
