#ProtectingSight #373: How boredom can lead to your most brilliant ideas. White cataract, coloboma, and multiple endocrine neoplasia (MEN). Jack Bogle’s timeless pearls on common sense investing.

Welcome to my daily learning journal. Here is today’s list:

1. Ted Talk – Manoush Zomorodi: How boredom can lead to your most brilliant ideas. “Do you sometimes have your most creative ideas while folding laundry, washing dishes or doing nothing in particular? It’s because when your body goes on autopilot, your brain gets busy forming new neural connections that connect ideas and solve problems. Learn to love being bored as Manoush Zomorodi explains the connection between spacing out and creativity.” (ted.com)

I am among the most guilty for time spent on social media. I created this blog to increase the educational exposure which the internet offers. And also to force myself to crack open physical books and journals. Love the opportunity to think while do nothing in particular (golfing is the great escape for this!). Excellent Ted talk with numerous audio clips from experts.

2. Cataract Surgery – Uday Devgan MD & Guest Surgeon Dr. Hamza Ali Tayyab – 1141: white cataract with coloboma. Excellent technique.

3. Andrew Lee MD – Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia (MEN) and the Eye.

Dr. Lee’s neuro-ophthalmology reviews are perfect for lifelong learning.

4. John C. Bogle – The Little Book of Common Sense Investing: The Only Way to Guarantee Your Fair Share of Stock Market Returns (Little Books, Big Profits). Introduction, Chapter 1-2.

I picked up this original 2007 edition for $1 at the Cherry Hill Public Library book sale a few years ago. One of the best investments in the world. Timeless pearls by Jack Bogle, the founder of Vanguard. (I’m also a huge fan of bogleheads.org, an investing advice forum).
