Weekly Brew 010

Wait, it’s already been ten mutha-fuckin weeks since I’ve started the Weekly Brew series of posts!? Did I miss something or is time just going poooft right under my nose?

Before I plunge into this weeks brew, I would sincerely like to thank you for reading, supporting and sharing my content. I have spoken to many of you via email or direct messaging. That, in my opinion, is what makes creating weekly content above and beyond my university work, worth it. I love hearing your stories and thoughts.

Each week, I get a variety of messages ranging from questions about coffee, to something about mindfulness, and even diet related stuff (even though I’ve steered away from that). I thrive off variety. I thrive off of feedback. So please, don’t be afraid to question something or disagree — I want to see what you are interested in or not so interested in.

Book I’m Reading

The Power Of Habit by Charles Duhigg


Habits are everything. You are the sum of your habits. The problem is: most of our habits as filthy, earth-dwelling humans, is that they are destructive, make us fat and take our money.

I’m a quarter of the way through this bad boy. But, honestly, I have the just of whats being said. I Will probably just download a summary and move on. It’s great, don’t get me wrong — but it’s filled with too many case studies for me.

There is another book on habits, which is more recent, called Atomic Habits, which looks more intriguing. Various individuals I follow on Instagram that I admire have recommended it. If you have read it, please let me know.

Podcast I’m Enjoying

Tim Ferriss Interviews Neil Gaiman

I became a fan of Neil Gaiman, not by reading his brilliant fiction masterpieces — but rather, listening to that iconic commencement speech he gave.

His voice is a combination of Fergie and Jesus.

Tim, it’s about time you had this legend on the podcast. Give it a listen and let me know what you think — I fucking loved it!

Quote I’m Contemplating

Whoever you are! motion and reflection are especially for you, The divine ship sails the divine sea for you. Whoever you are! you are he or she for whom the earth is solid or liquid, You are he or she for whom the sun and moon hang in the sky, For none more than you are the present and the past, For none more than you is immortality.

As always, please comment on what you enjoyed below. Any questions or, if you are in need of someone to speak to, I’m here…email me hello@joshsnyman.com :)

Have a blessed day and weekend ahead.
