🧠As humans, our brains are extremely good at viewing the world through lenses or mental models. Without this ability, the flood of information would exhaust us. Is it possible our natural world sorting view is doing us wrong? Learn about 24 cognitive biases that warp our perception of reality. [Visual Capitalist]
👓While we are on the topic of mental models, if some are harmful and we are clueless we use them; are there any we can use them to make life better? The answer is “yes,” ask two of the greatest business and investing minds of our time, Warren Buffet and Charlie Munger. Seeking Wisdom; From Darwin to Munger [Amazon]
📺I just found the most delightful TV series, maybe you’ve heard of it? The Marvelous Mrs Maisel? Thanks go to my friend Dan for the recommendation. The series was on my list for a while, and now I’m kicking myself for not watching it sooner. If you are a psychologist, you will love the strong characters. If you are into period stories, this will blow you away. If you like great performances, look no further! This is some of the best TV writing I’ve ever seen!
🤐Learn how to have a better conversation with Celeste Headlee. ⬇️ *Thank you Ron for the video!

Book Notes
Unfortunately, nothing great of note in books this week that hasn’t already been reported…List of “Books Read in 2018” is coming in the next issue, as well as the “5 Books That Changed My Year & Life.”
Quote I’m Pondering
Integrity is choosing courage over comfort; it’s choosing what’s right over what’s fun, fast, or easy; and it’s practicing your values not just professing them. 
~ 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?
