Happy Sunday!
Side projects definitely need more discipline than full-time gigs. Share your side projects, if you've made anything! 

Here are the top ten of the week-
💲 The business of bottled air. A growing number of entrepreneurs are capitalizing on China’s air pollution crisis by selling bottled air. But who is it actually helping?
🏅 A $34b company that was founded by a guy working in a closet. In 1993, Bob Young was unemployed and working out of his wife's sewing closet on a new company he co-founded. This week, that company sold to IBM for $34 billion in the tech giant's largest acquisition ever.
💸 The business value of design. How do the best design performers increase their revenues and shareholder returns at nearly twice the rate of their industry counterparts?
🛵 The irresistible urge to build cities from scratch. Forest City, a $100 billion luxury development with room for 700,000 people, has sprouted in Malaysia. Master-planned cities are all the rage in the developing world. Reality may get in the way of their ambitions.
👠 ‘Adulting classes’ for millennials. Inside the curious cottage industry devoted to teaching young adults how to act like grown-ups.
🤖 Garbage-eating robots. The WasteShark not only collects floating waste but also filters water and collects water quality data. So far it has operated in Dubai, South Africa and the Netherlands.
🎮 The digitizing of entertainment. LimeWire was miraculous, and no one thought it would survive. Eighteen years later, it's getting the recognition it deserves.
💊 The secret to aging well. "Despite having many friends in their 70s, 80s and 90s, I’ve been far too slow to realize that how we respond to aging is a choice made in the mind, not in the gym."
🎬 Short film: OK Google. When a father finds a year’s worth of his 5-year-old son’s Google voice searches, he inadvertently realizes there might just be a new member of his family.
💆 The startups profiting off your sanity. Mindfulness and meditation have become big business for tech-savvy entrepreneurs. But can you really unplug and reset while tied to an app on your phone?
