Teacher’s Reference Guides

  • The current rabbit hole is Paul Graham and his essays. So, so good. There’s a ton to be taken away from his multi-disciplinary take on startups, business, dealing with people, learning, competition, etc…

Monthly Challenges

  • None

Other

  • Jim Collins on Peter Drucker – “When young people ask, “What can I do to make a difference?” one of the best answers lies right here in this book. Get your hands on an organization aligned with your passion, if not in business, then in the social sectors. If you can’t find one, start one. And then lead it—through the practice of management—to deliver extraordinary results and to make such a distinctive impact that you multiply your own impact by a thousand-fold.”
  • Bertrand Russell on the importance of studying history
  • What Makes Roy Run? – fantastic article on the phenom to bust to phenom career Roy Halladay had. The satisfaction always lies in knowing you did something to the best of your ability.
  • JBS Haldane – On Being The Right Size
  • Seth Godin – Choosing Your FuelWhat Henry Ford Understood About Wages

It was a slower and more distracted month than usual as I was in the midst of planning, packing, moving and transitioning between jobs.

I will be vagabonding and off the grid for the most part over the next 2-3 months as I visit Nepal, India, Iceland, Sweden and Israel. 

Updates over the next few months will be few and far between but I will get re-focused in August or September.

Thanks for your support and, as always, Amor Fati
