This week, what's inspiring Oana Filip, community builder, storyteller and Chief People Officer at Pixelgrade.
A podcast worth listening to:
Masters of Community by David Spink to learn about how to nurture communities in a meaningful and sustainable way.
A concept worth understanding:
Community building aka what it takes to create a place where people share common values and help each other do amazing work together.
A Twitter account worth following:
Sari Azout is human-centered and puts this attitude at the forefront of everything she's doing. I genuinely resonate with her thinking due to the alternative she's offering through her work and her writing. We need more makers who have the courage to question how the world is functioning right now.
An article worth reading:
It's Time to Replace Ambition with Adaptation. We live in a time where the 'go big or go home' mantra still makes ripples, even though it's fundamentally broken; it's not always about scaling, growing, and conquering the world; often, adaptation is far more valuable because it puts the collective interests at the core and draws a positive effect on the entire community; we need to relearn how to work and live together beyond our selfish interests and amplified egos to survive, but also to thrive.
A habit worth forming:
Going to the gym to work with a personal trainer that understands your approach to sports; it's not everything about losing weight; sometimes, having a quiet head is the best outcome you could get.
