Thought Stack: Mental Models and Book Shorts


May 26, 2017

I usually call these mini episodes Thought-Full Thursdays, but I’m changing them to Pattern Breakers.

The purpose of these shorts is to allow you a few moments to ponder and reflect on a few questions that relate to the week’s Actionable Book Short, and hopefully get you thinking in new ways and enhance your typical daily patterns …

That brings us to this week’s Pattern Breaker on A Short History of Nearly Everything by Bill Bryson.

First question: It’s been said that 99.99 percent of all species that have ever lived are no longer with us. What makes you think things will be different for the future of our species?

Second question: Over 60 percent of human genes are fundamentally the same as those found in fruit flies and at least 90 percent correlate at some level to those found in mice.  Do you think humans are equivalent to other animals or superior?

Third question: Since DNA is the common connector between all animals, do you feel that all life is one?

Be sure to Join the Tribe by signing for the Weekly Thought-Full Newsletter. It’s a short email the covers the past week’s episodes, articles, and randomness you’d find worthwhile. 

Tune in this weekend for the Weekly Actionable Book Short a Short History of Nearly Everything. You’re going to love it.

Thanks for listening.  

Stay Thought-Full.
