Can I get an “amen” for Sunday! Another fine day in the Pacific NW. The apocalypse, funk, and egos, “What is the theme of today’s Sunday Roast?” Enjoy!

Curious Stories from the Week
😨I’m a sucker for a dystopian story. I just hope I’m not a sucker in a dystopian story. New series on Netflix had me captivated and binging - 1983 [Series Trailer] - an alternate history of Poland today, under the boot of an autocratic military government. Dark and delicious, worth a watch! [Link on Netflix]
☢️While we are on the topic of the apocalypse; “I am a leftist, anarchist prepper, and while we differ politically, I have to admit, the extreme preppers you see on TV are not completely out of their minds.” Secret Life of a Leftist Doomsday Prepper [Narratively]
🌵I met a guy named Rock once, bought a jar of ‘shine, then I realized he was the Mayor of this here town called Ballarat. Ballarat, California; not really off the beaten path, there wasn’t much of a path to begin with. The Mayor of Ballarat [The Atlantic] *My photo at the end is of a truck belonging to one of the Manson Family, - photographed in Ballarat - we weren’t far from the Barker Ranch after all.
🎵 Funk in the unusual of places. ⬇️

Book Notes
Ego Free Leadership: Ending the Unconscious Habits that Hijack You Business. (and raising children, talking to people, being near people, being a good human…the list goes on and on.)
Hands down, one of the most impactful books I’ve ever read on leadership; if not the most impactful book I’ve read in 2018 on being a better human.
Quote I’m Pondering
“Yes, I am imperfect and vulnerable and sometimes afraid, but that doesn’t change the truth that I am brave, and worthy of love and belonging.“ ~ Brene Brown Dare to Lead

What’s with the name, Sunday Roast and Stories Mindfully Curated? Sunday is a good day to do a weekly review. A time to take stock in the past week and get ready for the next. Which is always done with a fine coffee beverage, hence the Roast part. Through the week I share articles and stories that mattered in the long-run, not bits that are of pop culture or political. My goal is always to seek information that is as unbiased as possible, interesting, or enriching. In other words, Mindfully Curated for you.
Did you enjoy this issue?
