Seven Point Sunday – April 23, 2023

💼 Portfolio Career

How to solve any problem in the world using common sense. How many piano tuners are there in Seattle? Reasoning through Fermi problems can help you unlock solutions (see books below).

⚡️ Productivity

Consider Freedom. Blocks distracting websites/apps. Takes ~23 mins to refocus after checking email/feed. 

💰 Money

Consider Contentment. Be at peace with where you are. 

📚 Books

Read Range by David Epstein. Provides the data, studies, examples that support embracing a portfolio career. Many athletes/musicians specialize later in life. Power of analogical thinking. I use investment banking skills in producing music. When you jump domains, you see patterns.  


🎵 Music

Listen to Samba for Tarsila by Ben Sher. A marvelous mashup of familiar and feel-good songs fashioned as Brazilian jazz fusion based on the paintings of Tarsila de Aguiar do Amaral. Favorites: “Mas Que Nada” title track.


📽️ Film

Watch Spinning Gold directed by Timothy Scott Bogart. A biopic of 1970s record producer Neil Bogart, co-founder of Casablanca Records.
