(っ•́。•́)♪♬ Nº92 A Weekend Well Spent Brings A Week Of Content 🌿 🏕

I skipped a week! Did you notice?

That used to freak me out but sometimes completely unplugging is simply the best way to go. It was nice! I was in Brabant north of Breda nearly in the Biesbosch for several days with my family in a mega small & super cozy cabin.

Highlights from the trip:

Highlights since I’ve been back:

Ideas for upcoming issues:

  • Should each month have a weekly theme? Will provide focus for each introduction + articles?
  • Scrap the three subject sections to include more variety in the content shared?
  • Featured content. Would facilitating a means to get your content featured be useful?

As always, thank you for reading!

with appreciation,

Jon

8 Year Anniversary at Obst & Gemüse — Pas Normal Studios — www.pasnormalstudios.com

You know this is a special place as soon as you cross the huge carved wooden door when you find the first bikes waiting on the patio or the first time you walk inside, to a clean and open space divided into two floors. Downstairs, the best cargo bikes; upstairs, a painstaking selection of performance products and dreamlike machines.

10 work skills for the postnormal era — workfutures.io

“First of all, let’s state explicitly that we’re talking about skills that are helpful for operating in the wildly changing world of work, and note that I make no distinction between the skills needed by management versus staff. That is an increasingly unhelpful distinction, as the skill set will make clearer, perhaps.”
