Pulse
Hello and welcome to this week’s Pulse — the weekly techie/businessy newsletter from @perspectiveix. I’m your host, Behrouz, and I’d like to thank you for being here.
I’d also thank you for taking a look at this as well. I think you’ll find it interesting.
Now, let’s enjoy a Pulse together, shall we? Socially distant, of course.

The fact that we exist at all is pretty amazing. It’s a crazy universe out there.
And yet we forget that far too often. We forget to be amazed.
This is because we’re too busy running around doing the normal stuff- dropping kids off at school, keeping up with the Joneses, mowing the lawn, making sales calls, making small talk at cocktail parties,… I mean Zoom.
That’s no bad thing, either. Life has lots of moving parts. Lots of balls to juggle.
The trick, of course, is to find a happy medium. No, you don’t need to drop out, flee to India and go live in an ashram with a guru.
Nor do you need to be a pleasure-seeking, materialist obsessive like the characters in American Psycho.
What you do need, however, is gratitude.
The first step in understanding the universe is understanding that it doesn’t have to be here.

🐦 TWEETS of the WEEK

Boredom is only there when you think there is something more interesting, more purposeful, more meaningful that you can do than what you’re doing.

If you need a degree to do it, it’s not going to make you wealthy.

I saw a job post the other day. 👔

It required 4+ years of experience in FastAPI. 🤦

I couldn't apply as I only have 1.5+ years of experience since I created that thing. 😅

Maybe it's time to re-evaluate that "years of experience = skill level". ♻
