Back in the Saddle Again

Returning to The Routine.

Back in the Saddle Again

Hello friends,

Alright, I’ve fallen off the wagon and it’s time to get back on. Between building a new company, personal travel, and the requisite annual sickness, my focus has been unsurprisingly shoddy. But, after a long delay in writing, I’m settling back into the groove.

I know my last newsletter teased that I would have a big update coming soon, and I expect to deliver on that promise. But, like most things in life, the situation is evolving slower than expected and the timing isn’t exactly right.

So for now, let’s stick to the weekly reading and product list. I hope you find it insightful!

Product Recommendation

PLYST – Create smart playlists for your Spotify library by Josh Pigfor

I’ve always found Spotify’s playlists to be a letdown. And not the “I’m not mad, I’m just disappointed” kind of let down. For me, it’s the Santa Claus doesn’t exist sort of disappointment.

PLYST isn’t bringing the magic of Santa Claus back, but it’s decreasing my daily disappointment with Spotify playlists.
