Today is a very special edition. You are now 20,000 readers receiving Maker Mind each week in your inbox!
I didn't really have a plan when I launched the newsletter last year, and I'm incredibly grateful for this wonderful community of curious minds. Thank you for the thoughtful questions, for your energy, and for inspiring me to keep on exploring the human mind together.
Personal growth was really the driving reason for the creation of Maker Mind. And one of the most effective ways to grow as a person is to develop adjacent skills. This week, we'll talk about what these are, why they matter, and how you can acquire them.
We'll also talk about growth at a more conceptual level, looking at the quiet revolution of networked thinking, and how new tools for thought may expand our collective intelligence.
Finally, there's no good thinking without debugging our cognitive biases! So we'll have a look at a fairly common one: the negativity bias. (that's the one causing you to still remember vividly that one time you embarrassed yourself in front of your schoolmates)
Enjoy the read, and hit reply if you have any questions, feedback, or want to say hello!
p.s. last chance to fill the feedback form before I close it next week! And thank you Sara so much for this lovely comment :)
