Morning Nuggets – Wednesday, November 25, 2020
36 days remain until the end of the year. I started this blog on November 25, 2001 – nineteen years ago today! What a trip it’s been!
The Losses We Share – New York Times (Meghan Markle) – So this Thanksgiving, as we plan for a holiday unlike any before — many of us separated from our loved ones, alone, sick, scared, divided and perhaps struggling to find something, anything, to be grateful for — let us commit to asking others, “Are you OK?”
A novel approach to truth-telling – Financial Times – Twenty years ago, I assumed that the world’s two largest democracies, India and the US, would stay on course, never imagining that both countries — among many others — would see the rise of populists and the loss of so many freedoms.
It’s Time for a Digital Detox. (You Know You Need It.) – New York Times (Brian Chen) – “The difference between getting 10 likes and 20 likes, it’s all just meaningless,” Dr. Alter said.
We Begin Our Lives as Growth Stocks, But End Our Lives As Value Stocks – Of Dollars and Data – The high expectations of youth (growth) eventually get replaced by lower expectations and upside surprises as you age (value).
Introducing the Eisenhower Matrix – Eisenhower – The Eisenhower Matrix, also referred to as Urgent-Important Matrix, helps you decide on and prioritize tasks by urgency and importance, sorting out less urgent and important tasks which you should either delegate or not do at all.
I Remember When Rock Was Young – New York Times (Jennifer Finney Boylan) – The combination is weird, joyful and gorgeous.
Bitcoin finally finds a rationale in doomsday scenarios – Financial Times – To be clear, I don’t believe in the risk of global authoritarianism painted by the cryptocurrency’s most fervid backers. But as a doomsday contingency system, I am glad someone created bitcoin just in case.
