#140 - Creating Value, Leaving a Job, Post-Pandemic Prediction

I'm trying out a new format for the newsletter that is more digestable, more focused, and more streamlined. Your feedback would be most appreciated! Also, I have some updates coming soon on my search for a partner with the Circle of Competence newsletter and podcast. Stay tuned!

I. On adding value and creating equity:


“You get paid in direct proportion to the difficulty of problems you solve” ― Elon Musk


2 THOUGHTS


I. How you leave a job is just as important as how you perform on the job. It takes years to build relationships and a reputation in an industry and only a few minutes to ruin them. Leaving on good terms almost always leaves both reputation and relationships in tact. (Share on Twitter)


II. Prediction: small towns outside of major metro areas will flourish coming out of the pandemic. Remote work has altered the raison d'etre of cities. Who doesn't want more space for less, access to urban amenities, ease of air travel, and an easier family lifestyle? (Share on Twitter)

3 LINKS


I. A big little idea called Ergodicity (Taylor Pearson)


II. DATA: Post-Pandemic Silicon Valley Isn’t A Place (Initialized)


III. Charlie Munger - the man who built Berkshire-Hathaway (Finaius)
