BXP Weekly Newsletter

BXP Weekly Newsletter
By Rohit Kaul • Issue #28 • View online
As the year is coming to an end, I wanted to start today’s newsletter by saying ‘what an year it has been’ but then I realised it will be same as saying that the Sun is hot and the earth is round (no, really it is). So instead of that, I will say ‘here’s looking forward to a cracker of 2021’. 2020 was significant for me in more ways than one - Family size grew by 1, started writing about Behavioral Science publicly, was mostly safe and healthy through the year and was privileged enough to be able to work from home for most part.
I hope you have slogged your way through 2020 with good health and are able to end the year with high spirits. However, if the year was like a low blow to you, then just hang on as the bright morning Sun comes only after the darkest of nights.
In case you are taking time off from work, emails, messages and everything, next week to spend time with your loved ones, here’s wishing you a terrific 2021!
However, if you will be checking your mails next week, I will be sharing a few things I learnt from starting the BXP Weekly Newsletter next week (instead of the usual format of curated reading material). And then I will get one more chance to wish you a happy 2021 😀.

Diversifi is a group of Behavior Science practitioners from all across the world. They recently released an awesome compendium that has a mix of case studies, opinion pieces and work summaries from some of the brightest global minds in the field of Behavior Science.
The compendium includes write-ups on the importance of psychology in marketing, using behavior science to solve the problem of urban trash, impact and response to COVID-19, how Zoom disrupted communications industry by focusing on reducing friction and many more.
It is also designed in a minimally expansive manner (yes, an oxymoron but that’s the best way to describe it) and the marketer in me really liked the impactful design. A good weekend read that you should definitely check out by visiting Diversifi website here.
