Five for Friday – January 5, 2018

I’ve missed doing these, but glad to get started again.

  • “The world doesn’t reward perfection. It rewards productivity.” – 18 Minutes by Peter Bregman
  • I’ve been working my way through Tribe of Mentors by Tim Ferris and finding a lot of ideas and a lot of inspiration.
  • While on the subject of Tim, I also recommend his recent podcast where he “interviews” Terry Crews (I use quotes because Terry really interviews himself).
  • Speaking of books, I just bought the Humble Bundle Python pack – if you’re not aware of Humble Bundle, they sell packages of books, games, comics and more on a scaled pay-what-you-will basis…with proceeds going to charity. I bought their Data Science bundle a few months back as well.
  • Camille Fournier (author of The Manager’s Path) recently posted about her (self) Yearly Review. I value (and use) self-reflection a lot, but have never applied it on a full year. I’m working through the list myself and finding it valuable.

  1. “The world doesn’t reward perfection” – One of the most important lessons I have learned. No one product is perfect, they have things that they can’t or can do. What’s important is the value you are adding value. For example, working in a startup you have millions of things to do. It is important that you don’t find yourself asking “What am I meant to do now?” List down the list of the items you have to do, and rank them based on importance.
