🙌🏽 Hello to all the new subscribers and welcome to another week in Monday Madness.
If you’d like to subscribe to become an ongoing patron of this newsletter, you can do this before diving into this week’s issue:
Good morning folks,
I began this newsletter to cement my reflections from the previous week.
The learning outcome of such practice provided a refreshing perceptive into new ideas and knowledge.
By sharing what I have learnt -I build a foundation that can be compounded over time with new information.
Critically, it is based on how you maintain and sustain your note-taking hub.
I found this be an amazing way to build new knowledge and share it with the world in my way. Most often, I like to present snippets of it in my newsletter as a trailer, but I usually expand on the idea through a YouTube video or a blog post.
Its an expanding process and this year I intend to improve on it by exploring to add RoamResearch into my arsenal of the note-taking hub.
By using bi-directional links and tags to create different areas of different topics
Well, that's all for this week. I'll see you next week.

How I structure my speech to persuade others? - In this article, I distil three modes of persuasion that have been initially highlighted by Aristotle, a well-renowned philosopher of his time. Each distinguishing mode of persuasion is designed to appeal towards the audience's emotion, logic and the credibility of a speaker.
Snippet of Value
Article - In this article, the author draws upon the attention of making deliberate mistakes. The practice of such a method is an act of preparation. A deliberate mistake made under less pressured environment can provide insights into improvement, variables that were not prepared for or attention to details that seemed irrelevant. However, the same mistake made under a high-pressured situation could have drastic effects if not prepared for it.
Here's a snippet to consider:
For a pilot, stunting is a skill attained through practice. You go up in a plane and, for example, you change the angle of the wings to deliberately stall the craft. You prepare beforehand by learning what a stall is, what the critical variables you have to pay attention to are, and how other pilots address stalls. You learn the optimal response. But then you go up in the air and actually apply your knowledge. What’s easy and obvious on the ground, when you’re under little pressure, isn’t guaranteed to come to you when your plane loses lift and function at 10,000 feet. Deliberately stalling your plane, making a conscientious mistake when you have prepared to deal with it, gives you the experience to react when a stall happens in a less controlled situation.
