#3 self-development backstage | how to get rich • subscriptions • brilliant
As I promised in the last issue I will start with list of my paid subscriptions:
Lastpass - password management
NordVPN - vpn for better privacy
Brilliant - science-related courses
Google Workspace - mail
raywenderlich.com - IMO the best android and iOS tutorials - they're also good because they're constantly updating content once new features are released
We will take a closer look at Brilliant today.
There are also some subscriptions I would like to have e.g. Grammarly or EverydayApp. Unfortunately, as you can see, my list is already quite long so there are obvious limitations, and I need to pick only these which significantly improve my workflow.
This time I will share another type of great content. If you were caught by slogan from mail title, here we go.
This graphic is so, so, so awfully-awful (anatomy, technique.. everything is wrong with it) that the only thing I wanted to do after listening is to forget I've ever seen this picture.
Fortunately, the opposite is true for a podcast content.
What you can see above is How to get rich podcast by Naval. It is the longest podcast I've ever heard. Actually, it's not a single episode, but lots of them merged into one with a common theme. As you may think, such guides are often just catchy titles with no value inside. This one proves that exceptions exist. To be honest, I would never listen to it, but this was recommended by my friend Michał which I respect a lot, so I knew he's not sharing crap.
Did I learn anything? Sure - I've got 3 pages of notes. It's not a step-by-step guide about getting rich. It's about the way of thinking and acting. Way of living that can help a lot without having luck.
There's even a transcript available at https://nav.al/rich
During the last 2 weeks, I wrote 2 articles. If you're learning foreign languages while reading with ebook readers or mobile you may find it useful.

I want to tell you something more about Brillant which I'm using to improve my science-related knowledge. They provide ~60 courses with a wide range of topics such as probability, how cryptocurrencies are working, number theory, logic, algebra, and much more. All of them packed into small and interactive lessons with the ability to run them on mobile or the web.
How is it different from other apps? I think it's interactive form of lessons and focuses on building intuition around problems rather than learning formulas.
Currently, I'm improving my knowledge in the field of calculating probabilities. I'm doing just 10 minutes of lessons per day, and it's a good replacement for mobile games.
