Seven Point Sunday – February 4

💼 Portfolio Career

Meet Sarah Burgess. Running coach & property rental. Having many careers is “not as scary as it sounds.” Daily schedule: run, zooms, daily quiz show.

⚡️ Productivity

Consider Readwise. Makes it easy to revisit & learn from your ebook & article highlights. After I read a Kindle book I forget about it. But this app re-surfaces passages that I’ve highlighted via daily email. I remember what I read over time.

💰 Capital

Consider Starwood Property Trust (Ticker: STWD). A REIT that originates mortgages & invests in commercial/residential properties. Dividend ~9%. Check this thesis.

📚 Books

Read Be Useful by Arnold Schwarzenegger. In the winter of his life, he provides 7 life lessons. The biggest is the title. The most important thing to other people are their own problems. Help them solve their problems, and you’ll create a place for yourself. Most people feel life is happening to them. They don’t have vision. Never have a plan B. Muhammad Ali didn’t count reps until they hurt. Everyone has to know how to sell. Get addicted to helping other people and feel the valopressin. Excellent book. My review.

🎵 Music

Listen Album for the Young (And Not-So-Young) by Ben Yarmolinsky. Stirring solo classical guitar renditions of familiar works. Massage your eardrums. Favorites: “Reverie” and “Chorale.” Proud to release it.

📽️ Film

Watch Three Identical Strangers directed by Tim Wardle. In 1980 New York, three young men who were all adopted meet each other and find out they’re triplets who were separated at birth. But their quest to find out why turns into a bizarre and sinister mystery.
