My Weekly Learnings #8 (16.05 – 22.05)

Amidst all the content I consume every week, through this weekly series of ‘My Weekly Learnings’, sharing highlights of content pieces that caught my eye and provided more value than I could imagine.

(P.S. Every Sunday, I share a list of what to read, listen, and watch, in my weekly series, The Last 7 Days. You can check out the editions here).

For this week’s edition, I decided to take a different route and share something quite interesting.

So I’ve been watching this animated series, Star Wars : The Clone Wars. A series created by George Lucas, began with a theatrical feature film, and is set in the fictional Star Wars galaxy during the three years between the prequel films Episode II: Attack of the Clones and Episode III: Revenge of the Sith.

At the start of each episode is a line that summarizes a lesson, a takeaway from the episode and its definitely something to learn. Since I’ve recently started the series, sharing the few quotes that I’ve come across as of now.

S02E16 (Cat and Mouse) : A wise leader knows when to follow.

S01E16 (The Hidden Enemy) : Truth enlightens the mind, but won’t always bring happiness to your heart.

S03E01 (Clone Cadets) : Brothers in arms are brothers for life.

S03E03 (Supply Lines) : Where there’s a will, there’s a way.

S01E01 (Ambush) :  Great leaders inspire greatness in others.

S01E02 (Rising Malevolence) : Belief is not a matter of choice, but of conviction.

S01E03 (Shadow of Malevolence) : Easy is the path to wisdom for those not blinded by ego.

S01E04 (Destroy Malevolence) : A plan is only as good as those who see it through.

S01E05 (Rookies) : The best confidence builder is experience.

S01E06 (Downfall of a Droid) : Trust in your friends, and they’ll have reason to trust in you.

S01E07 (Duel of the Droids) : You hold onto friends by keeping your heart a little softer than your head.

S01E08 (Bombad Jedi) : Heroes are made by the times.

S01E09 (Cloak of Darkness) : Ignore your instincts at your peril.

S01E10 (Lair of Grievous) : Most powerful is he who controls his own power.

S01E11 (Dooku Captured) : The winding path to peace is always a worthy one, regardless of how many turns it takes.

will hopefully update more in the coming series as and when I watch more episodes —

Then, he left. [David Perell]
