💼 Portfolio Career

Read Why You Should Have (at Least) 2 Careers. In 2017, I wrote this article. Today in a new book (see below), Harvard Business Review says it’s one of the 30 most influential in its 100 year history. 


⚡️ Productivity

Check out the app one sec. It forces you to take a deep breath whenever you open social media apps. It’s as simple as effective: You will reduce your social media usage just by becoming aware of it. one sec is the focus app that tackles the problem of unconscious social media use at its root. It is designed to change your habits on a long-term basis.


💰 Money

Consider West Fraser Timber Co (WFG). There appears to be pent up demand for timber because of material shortages. Read this investment thesis. In addition, the company recently boosted its dividend 20%.

📚 Books

Read HBR at 100: The Most Influential and Innovative Articles from the Harvard Business Review’s First Century. The most definitive management ideas of the century, all in one place. HBR is the foremost destination for smart management thinking. Now, at its 100th anniversary, this commemorative volume brings together the most influential ideas since its inception. This book features business publishing’s most influential voices on innovative topics, including Michael E. Porter, Peter Drucker, and (ahem, chapter 10) Kabir Sehgal (yeah, I really don’t belong here, but I’ll take it). 


🎵 Music

Listen to If These Walls Could Talk by Jorge Mejia. A gorgeous, cinematic solo piano album. An acclaimed virtuoso, Mejia wrote this three-movement piece during the pandemic. He thought about an apartment building in which he used to live that was built in 1926 – and what stories it could tell. This album is marvelous. Also learn about Jorge’s practice routine: “When I have the most time I will start with scales, do sight reading, play a little Bach…”

📽️ Film

Watch Bob Ross: Happy Accidents, Betrayal & Greed, directed by Joshua Rofé. Ross brought joy to millions as the world’s most famous art instructor. But a battle for his business empire cast a shadow over his happy trees.
