Rob's Top Picks: Week 8

Rob’s Top Picks 🔝😎🤙🤩

I’ve scoured the universe for the coolest stories this week and hand picked the best ones to super-power your inbox! 

30 Minute Dinner Ride

This week I have a challenge for you….

Grab a friend or family member

And ride your bikes out to eat

Breakfast, lunch, dinner - doesn’t matter

I spent the weekend in Beijing with my college best friends

We’ve indulged ourselves with the incredible food here

But because we’ve been riding bikes everywhere, we have no guilt

And every meal has been full of new discoveries

So what are you waiting for?

This is your call to make your next dinner an adventure!

 

Wecrashed | Series

What happens when a genius sociopath lies his way to the top? 

PURE COMEDIC GOLD

I don’t want to spoil too much of this show

But the story is just too good to miss

I found myself both loving and hating the protagonist

And laughing all the way

Watch the trailer here 

 

Daily Journal Prompts

 

I’ve been trying out these daily journal prompts. 

They’re a quick way to get thoughts on paper and focus on what’s important. 

 

Save these prompts and try them out.

A few minutes on your notes app is plenty to set you up for success. 

 

If you’ve got any go-to journal prompts, I’d love to hear them. 

In the Morning:

3 things you’re grateful for

3 things that would make today great

3 affirmations

At Night:

3 things you can improve upon

3 things you did well

 

Unlimited New Music Hack

Have you ever fell in love with a song

You listened to it, then listened again and again

Then it was on the radio every 5 songs, in the club, everywhere

The next time you heard it you just skipped it - NEXT

I always hated that about music

That a song can go from giving you so much joy to contempt

But fret no more my 2 wheeled friend

Uncle Robbie’s got the ultimate music hack for you

You’ve gotta go international

The US represents 5% of the global population

And just a small percent of the music made globally

There is incredible music made all around the world

And we rarely get to experience any of it

If you can 5x or 10x the size of your music collection

The honeymoon phase of each song will last you THAT much longer!

So here’s what you do:

Go to spotify or your favorite music player

Search for Top 50 ______ 

Insert a random country, any country, the first one you think of

Ex: Top 50 Spain, Top 50 Iceland, Top 50 Korea

You’ll get the hottest songs in that country…

Just skip until you find something you like 

and change your country if you don’t

Admittedly top 50 stuff is very hit and miss -

So after you try that, try your favorite genres plus a random country

Ex: Indie Brazil, Party Israel, Hip Hop India

You’ll get a load of new music to suit your mood

Of course be sure to “like” the songs you enjoy

And if you’re on spotify, go to that song and press. “Go to song radio”

It will make a new playlist for you full of songs like that song

And your collection of fun new music grows…

I’ve been enjoying this 13hr playlist of fun brazilian music
