My 26 Favorite Essays of 2019
As part of my year-end review, I always review my favorite reading of the year. These usually tend to be “long-form” online essays diving deep into interesting ideas.
Revisiting my notes on these articles serves three functions:
- Helps me absorb their ideas more deeply
- Serves as a reminder to think about how I can use their ideas as building blocks in upcoming projects
- Reveals clues about where the next year’s learning may take me
This year I’ve decided to write a review of each of the most important essays I discovered in 2019. Each one includes a short summary of what it’s about, the main idea I took away from it for my own work and life, and a link to my full notes if any.
