Episode 216 | Word of Note: Visku

Our Words of Note series continues by taking a look at the Icelandic word for wisdom. AJ and Chris share their own life hacks, tips, and acquired knowledge from the lens of the City by the Salish Sea.

Visku - An Icelandic word for wisdom.

AJ’s Visku - for you!

Philosophy | The Mountain Doesn’t Care. It doesn’t care if we live, if we die. If we summit, or turn around. And in the end, when we are all long gone, it will out live us all. SO, learn from that. Find your grounding wherever you are with nature.

Finances| Stay within your means and perhaps evaluate the utility cost over time

Photography | Get your photos printed. Carry one in your wallet even (you might even be hip to do so, cool to be so retro?)

Food | Evaluate not just what you eat, but WHY you eat what you eat.

Chris’ Visku - it’s true!

Parking in a grocery store parking lot - backing in

Assuming other drivers will speed through the right lane and merge quickly ahead of you as two lanes become one. Visku gives us the ability to let them go ahead of you.

Files on your computer | back them up or they never existed.

Time-shifting your workday - 30 minutes earlier

Twins- Pro tip, twin base guitars to hot swap between them in the middle of performances
