Lindy Library

Lindy Library

Sum of Experiences

I believe we’re all shaped by the sum of our many experiences. At the most influential level the biggest factors that shape us includes our families, where we were raised, and who we call our friends.

Among our environment and surroundings, I also believe a big aspect of what goes into developing our world-view is the content we consume.

The books we read.

The movies we watch.

The Facebook Videos and YouTube Videos.

The 60 second Instagram vids and IGTV. The snapchats, tweets and TikToks.

On this page I’ve arranged my favorite content. Some of these are from my favorite authors and thought leaders. Others are personal mentors and teachers of mine.

The medium of content ranges from books to digital courses, tweets to YouTube Videos.

At the core, I follow these individuals deeply because they all represent values and virtues I strive to work towards.I want to share what I’ve learned from these giants that I’ve had the privilege to stand upon.

This page is titled “Lindy Library” because of the Lindy Effect. It’s a term popularized by philosopher Nassim Taleb stating that how long something’s been around is a great indicator of how much longer it’ll last.

In other words timeless material tend to stay timeless. When reading material it pays dividends to revisit the classics. In this case, these are my classics. (Updated: Oct 12, 2019)

Got Something Lindy? Send It Through.

I'm always trying to learn unknown unknowns.

Have something that's not common knowledge or something that's so common people take it for granted?
