{This week: Minimalism on Netflix, deep work, college students and learning, performance reviews, and more.}

Hi all,

Below are 10 happy links that inspired me this week. I hope you enjoy them, too!

1. The Minimalist’s film—Minimalism—is out on Netflix. Earlier this year, Joshua sent me a screener to watch, and I enjoyed the film. Also, I’m honored that they included part of my story in the documentary. I hope you'll watch the film and share it with a friend!

2. And speaking of minimalism, Cal Newport wrote a timely essay about digital minimalism.

3. And their eyes glazed over is a fascinating piece about college students and learning in the age of texts and tech.

4. So good: On writing the 2017 performance review now.

5. Russ Roca shared helpful photography tips in a recent video.

6. I’m on board with this—Keep it moving.

7. Powerful essays: How I gave up drinking in the music industry (and survived) and What it means to be a part of everything: Reinventing my life, without alcohol.

8. I’m obsessed with the television series Planet Earth.

9. An interesting look into what it takes to open a bookstore.

10. I need this sign in my front yard.

Bonus Links …

11. Last week, I read Big Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fear by Elizabeth Gilbert for a second time because I’m doing research for a writing project. I’ll share details about the project soon.

12. My mother-in-law gifted me a copy of The Invention of Wings by Sue Monk Kidd. On Monday, I stayed up way past my bedtime reading Kidd’s words. The storyline is intriguing!

13. If you’re looking for a good book to read during the holidays, peruse my list of good reads.
