Managing the professional service firm by David H. Maister

If you're in this business — strongly recommend. Very practical, fundamental work. One of the best business books that I've ever read.

To watch

The egg

It's a beautiful and very powerful story.

Born Rich

Thoughtful, interesting documentary about young people being born rich, their perspective on the world and problems.

A Conversation With My 12 Year Old Self: 20th Anniversary Edition

A guy made a video to future self in his twelves. It was in 1992. He viewed it and recorded a reply in 2012, when he was 32. Hilarious masterpiece.

Insightful short documentary from Polymatter.

Messages for the Future

One of my favorite videos form Vsauce. Rewatched it recently. The Library of Babel still blows my mind.

Limitless series on Netflix

If you loved the movie — you will love the sequel, which CBS turned into a series show. The story is about a guy who is not very successful in life. But then he discovers a mystical nootropic NZT-48. It gives him access to every neuron in his brain. This drug unlocks the full potential of the human brain and gives him enhanced mental faculties.

To learn

Course "Space Exploration" by Chris Hadfield on Masterclass

Chris is amazing. Learned a lot on how rockets work, astronauts trainings and space traveling in general. If you're curious about all these stuff and space travel in general — highly recommend.
