This week’s highlights: Paying Twice, Great Brands, and Polar Bears
Super busy week here with travel and meetings, so things are abbreviated this edition.
Food for Tood for Thought
- Aptitude – Everything Must Be Paid for Twice. In our search for fulfillment, we keep paying first prices, creating a correspondingly enormous debt of unpaid second prices. Yet the rewards of any purchase – the reason we buy it at all — stay locked up until both prices are paid.
- WashingtonPost – The Moral Calculus of A Billionaire. After the best year in history to be among the super-rich, one of America’s 745 billionaires wonders: ‘What’s enough? What’s the answer?’
- LITG – The Decline and Renewal of the American Church: Part 1 – The Decline of the Mainline. Even if you are not personally religious, the American church plays a tremendous role in the sociological history of the United States.
- FRR – Great Startups Deserve Great Brands — Build a Strong Foundation by Avoiding These Mistakes
- GuardianUK – Polar bears move into abandoned Arctic weather station – photo essay. Photographer Dmitry Kokh discovered polar bears living in an abandoned weather station in Kolyuchin, in the Chukotka Autonomous Okrug of the Russian Federation, while on a trip to Wrangel Island, a Unesco-recognised nature reserve that serves as a refuge to the animals
When Anything is Possible – Wealth and the Art of Strategic Living
The book is about how we shift from focusing on the things we want to avoid, to the things we want to accomplish with our wealth. Doing so requires a person to articulate 3 key items – Wealth Structure, Wealth Identity and ultimately a Wealth Strategy. The book walks through each of these items in great depth, and guides the reader through a process to develop each.
