Grab a cup of coffee and enjoy, welcome to “Waking Hours”.
This is a note that I, Calvin, wanted to share with you, my IO group. These are some of the things that brought a smile to my face, fascinated me about the wonders of our world, and gave me the motivation to make the most of today, and I hope you enjoy it.

A work of art to be consumed.

Hamilton, which some have claimed to be the best Broadway play of all time has just been added to Disney Plus. You might be the kinda person to say musicals aren’t my thing, but trust me on this recommendation when I say this is a masterpiece. Grab some popcorn and give it a watch during your free trial and you won’t regret it — and you might learn a thing or two.

The podcast I’ve been binging lately.

I get it, you’re tired of hearing about another podcast you need to listen to. Especially from me, I serve them up like hotcakes, but if you're like me and are into tech and big companies this one is for you. Land of the Giants dives into the biggest tech companies around and explains their claim to fame. Give it a listen here.

A quote from the book I’m reading.

“The mind is a portal to the soul, and what you fill your mind with will shape the trajectory of your character.” — John Comer, The Ruthless Elimination of Hurry *highly recommend this book

Are the things you’re filling your mind with shaping your character in the trajectory you like?
Something to think about.

Thank you for reading.
See you Sunday.
