The best things I read, watched, played, and listened to in 2020
- Atomic Habits – Systems over goals. That is the main lesson.
- How to be Black – Comedy is such a create vehicle for discussing difficult topics, and this book proves it. I think it’s a great starter book for white people who want to educate themselves on racism.
- Glengarry Glen Ross – I finally got around to watching it after all these years. Different than I expected. Felt more like a play than a movie, but I really liked it. And that Alec Baldwin scene is just a classic.
- The Morning Show – This was insanely good. Can’t wait for season 2.
- The Movies that Made Us – Fun series on Netflix that goes behind the scenes on some of my favorite movies.
- The Irishman – Scorsese, De Niro, Pacino, and Pesci. Need I say more.
- Quincy – Documentary about Quincy Jones. Instant favorite.
- The Last Dance – Documentary about Michael Jordan. Another instant favorite!
- The Good Place – Finished the final season and all I can say is wow. Such a unique show.
- The Last of Us: Part 2 – I’ve been playing this since it came out, but slowly. I still haven’t finished. It’s a really long game and it’s living up to my expectations. Also, clickers scare me.
- Cortex – Stumbled upon a few episodes this year when they talked about note-taking apps and I ended up staying. Really like the dynamic between the hosts.
- Dithering – I subscribed to this over the summer and don’t regret it.
- City of the Future – This is a newer one that I found in the past month. Lot’s of cool stuff I’m learning about how people are thinking about improving the places we live.
