Quote I’m pondering“People who live far below their means enjoy a freedom that people busy upgrading their lifestyles can’t fathom.”Naval Ravikant

Life lessons I wish I’d had sooner – Staying with @Naval, these lessons he re-shared on Twitter (you don’t need an account to view) have resulted in me pivoting more than one area of my life recently. I’ve copied them to my personal cloud, in order to keep them forever and share with my children. You’ll definitely be interested in them.

Books I’m reading: I read multiple books at once. There are many out there to learn from and be enjoyed. If you don’t know where to start looking for inspiration, try Bill Gates and Tim Ferriss. My current reading – Sapiens (this one is big), Man’s search for meaning (I read this every year, it’s the most important book in my life), Measure what Matters, Who’s Pulling Your Strings?, Turning the Flywheel.

Here are more from my reading list:

Work I’m pondering – I’m in technology, where often people try to persuade others that data is king for decision making. Data is crucial, though by itself it doesn’t trump our thinking. In fact data can be as biased as human intuition, this is an interesting read from Bruce Kasanoff that’s helping me act and plan more effectively using data.

LinkedIn profiles – I’m planning changes to my LinkedIn profile and devouring the best advice I can find. This one from Andy Foote on effective LinkedIn summaries has some great examples, I’m taking inspiration and banking it. Take a look, I think you’ll be inspired too.
