Rob's Top Picks: Week 9

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! 

My Octopus Teacher | Documentary
If you haven’t seen this yet, you’re missing out
Long story short:
Man sees octopus in the ocean
Then decides to return and film the same octopus every day for a year
Because… why not?
The resulting film is spectacular 
It had my girl and I on the edge of our seats
And I’ll never look at an octopus the same way…

Watch the trailer here

🍀 Good Luck | Short Read

It’s 11pm and I’m waiting endlessly for a delayed flight

This sucks I think… as I fidget aimlessly

Soon I’m downloading a spanish audiobook app (why not?)

And the first title catches my eye - 

La Buena Suerte (The Good Luck)

Minutes later I’m in a medieval fairy tale

Joining 2 knights in search for a magical 4 leaf clover

One is good, one is bad…

The story ends, my plane boards

But I’m not annoyed anymore

I’m bright eyed, motivated

And ready to create some good luck of my own…

So if you’d like more Good Luck in your life, 

I highly recommend this short ~2hr read

It’s a masterpiece in storytelling

Simple, profound and relevant for all ages

Check it out Here

And if you speak Spanish, 

The original Spanish version is Here

Walking Desk

It’s a walking speed treadmill you put under your work desk

Then you walk, while you work.

Sounds crazy right?

I thought they were so dumb when I first saw them 

How can you work while you’re walking? 

Why not just go outside? 

Well this week I’ve been staying with a friend in Beijing

And you guessed it - he’s got one under his standing desk

I woke up, hit the treadmill desk and before I knew it put 14000 steps in. 

That’s like 6 miles with no extra time spent!

Hell I loved it so much I’m getting one for home and one for the office

I don’t have a link for you on this one

There’s a bunch out there

Just google walking treadmill 

I recommend a folding one so you can stash it once you’ve got your steps in
