Fun time in New York. 

  • Played a show for ~2k people overlooking statue of liberty
  • Brunched with a dear friend (and 7PS reader)
  • Recording session with Deepak Chopra (new albums coming!)
  • Tried a new Indian restaurant (Mmm…Indian Fried Chicken)
  • Almost got run over by a taxi…again!

💰 Money

Consider General Mills (Ticker: GIS). The cereal maker. Cheerios and Lucky Charms are inflation proof, right? It recently delivered strong earnings. And it boosted its dividend 6%. The company is also moving into the pet treats market. Read this investment thesis.

📚 Books

Read From Strength to Strength by Arthur C. Brooks. I’m not as quick as I used to be. It’s more difficult for me to multi-task. And my capacity has diminished a bit. But this is a natural occurrence. When ambitious people or “stivers” see their skills or “fluid intelligence” diminish, they freak out. I read this book to understand how think about the rest of my life. Kick my success addiction. Call a friend. A real one – not a deal one. Turns out, I don’t have that many. It’s something I need to work on. Here’s my review


🎵 Music

Listen to Falling by Kristen Lee Sergeant. There is no escaping the tragic times in which this project was manifested. But falling can also be an act of faith: When you surrender, you create space for growth, advancement, and enlargement. Sergeant embraced this paradox as she wrote, arranged, and performed on every piece. My favorite tracks: “Honey” and “Let’s Fall.”


📽️ Film

Watch Searching for Sugar Man directed by Malik Bendjelloul. One of my favorite music documentaries of all time. Two South Africans set out to discover what happened to their unlikely musical hero, the mysterious 1970s rock n roller, Rodriguez.
