Happy Saturday y'all! Below, I have rounded up some things for you to think about this weekend:

1. Elon Musk is a busy man. He's involved in the SpaceX project, Tesla Inc., SolarCity, and much more. Over Labor Day Weekend he tweetstormed his prediction that artificial intelligence (not North Korea) will be the cause of World War III. It's not a long read—probably only a minute or two—but it's worth considering, as it's something that could potentially affect us all in the near future.

2. I was featured in a roundup post on Self Development Secrets this past week that covered The Best Self-Help Books that you might like to check out. My choice was What Color is Your Parachute? by Richard N. Bolles, which I found very helpful for my career and personal life when I first read it three years ago. If you've never heard of it before, give it a shot—I really enjoyed the "Flower Exercise" chapter which has several exercises that are designed to help the reader identify their favorite fields of interest, preferred kinds of people to work with, transferable skills, preferred salary range and desired level of responsibility, preferred places to live, and personalized goal, purpose, or mission in life. Thank you to Self Development Secrets for reaching out to me and asking me to write a blurb for their post!

That's all for this week's edition of Weekend Thoughts. Until next week, keep thinking wilder.
