"How you spend your time is how you spend your life." I don't know who the first person to say that was, but it's something I've been thinking about more and more. Take ten minutes to listen to Greg McKeown discuss the importance of essentialism and why if you don't prioritize your life someone else will. 
"If you don't prioritize yourself, someone else will."
Practicing Kindness
Teach a friend or stranger a skill you're good at – it's a wonderful way to enrich their life and help you practice your expertise.

A Song I Like

The Intellexual project from Nico Segal and Nate Fox, as a whole, is really wonderful – I encourage you to listen to it start to finish. But, if you're short on time, check out "Shotty" featuring Vic Mensa and Sophia Black to get a good taste.

Another Song I Like

"Thieves" by SAÍGO & Dayo is smooth, funky, and easy to listen to morning, noon or night. 
From a Friend
"It’s sometimes annoying, I think, for my partner, and my friends, to always have me trying to remind them of just how special it is that we’re wherever we are, a quiet bar, or a back patio on a warm evening, or a friend’s house for brunch, or whatever, because they can tell in my voice that I am so terrified that this is going to end at some point and it’ll just be a memory."
