Pay attention to who you have the highest-bandwidth conversations with (i.e., important ideas are exchanged quickly and clearly). Work with those people any way you can.

One of the founder qualities that is least talked about is _intentionality_. Being intentional about: - who you start a company with - the things you focus on - the company you build - the leader you want to become - the culture you want to create - the people you want to hire

Best part about a home gym is being able to squeeze in a little exercise on busy days in the mornings before meetings or even at midnight before bed. Honestly can’t imagine renewing my gym membership anymore.

Spending Sunday listening to the musician who inspired my love for composing music and playing jazz improv. I remember the first time I heard the Köln Concert in high school, opened my ears to a whole new world of sounds. Keith Jarrett, what a legend.

Keith Jarrett, one of the most heralded pianists alive, revealed that he had two strokes in 2018. It is unlikely he will perform in public again.

Constantly reminded of the importance of one of my favorite Chinese phrases, useful for all walks of life: "天时地利人和" 天时 (tiānshí):the right time 地利 (dìlì):the right place 人和 (rén hé):the right people

1/A follow-up thread on Nobel Prizes and Big Questions. Branko asks: Why don't we award prizes for economists who work on the incredibly important question of how China grew so fast? It's a very good question...

Back in 2016, I got my first VR setup (HTC Vive + PC), cost me a shiny penny. Today in 2020, I received the Oculus Quest 2, standalone device with inside-out tracking for a fraction of the price. Feels like a big step forward for consumer VR adoption.
