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:

  1. Helps me absorb their ideas more deeply
  2. Serves as a reminder to think about how I can use their ideas as building blocks in upcoming projects
  3. 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.
