A BRIEF PAUSE
Hope everyone’s having a happy Labor Day — or, if that doesn’t mean anything to you because you’re outside the U.S. (or just not into Labor Day), then just a happy day!
To get to the point: I have to put TAoN on a brief pause, maybe three weeks, give or take, while I take care of some other obligations.
Those of you who are paid subscribers: Don’t worry, this pause freezes all billing/subscription cycles, until I resume publication. More here.
I know this might be a bit of a bummer — especially for all the new subscribers who just signed up over the past week or two! So maybe check out some past TAoN guest prompts I’ve written about? In no particular order:
Ingrid Fetell Lee on collecting joy
Larry Smith on six-word introspection
Tom Vanderbilt on how to get a new perspective
Anne Kadet on appreciating random people
Jude Stewart on noticing smell
Michael Pederson on walking a route you usually drive
Ximena Vengoechea on listening to your listening
Ron Lieber on reading walls
Wesley Verhoeve on second looks
McKinley Valentine on levels of attention
Miranda Mellis on lucid napping
Mason Currey on monitoring everyday thought
Josh Glenn on meaningful color
Rebekah Modrak on the power of humility
That should keep you busy: It’s an impressive array of totally free inspiration and insight! So enjoy, and I’ll be back before you know it.
Thanks for the patience and understanding.
OKAY THAT’S IT!
As always, I value your feedback (suggestions, critiques, positive reinforcement, constructive insults, etc.), as well as your tips or stories or personal noticing rituals, things we need a word for, and of course your icebreakers: firstname.lastname@example.org. Or use the comments. —> Or just click the heart symbol. That always makes my day.
And thanks for reading …
