“We read a lot. I don’t know anyone wise who doesn’t read a lot. But that’s not enough: You have to have a temperament to grab ideas and do sensible things. Most people don’t grab the right ideas or don’t know what to do with them.”
— Charlie Munger
I am a voracious reader. For me, it is extremely important to read at least for 45 minutes every day. I have picked up on this practice since 2017 and have never stopped. The days I read are better than the ones I don't.
Many have requested that I start a section on my website, highlighting my favorite books and reads, so welcome to my public library. The list isn't complete or absolute; overtime, I'll add more titles to it.
I gift every CEO I partner multiple books, combining the ones I believe are essential for decacorn building and some materials that will likely help them into their journey, taking a personalized approach to every investment.
You should read a lot if you want to be competent. It helps you concentrate, learn how to learn, and lastly, you get free on-demand mentorship.
I love shopping offline and local. That said, traditional retailers that don’t innovate will die pretty fast. Long live $SHOP and $AMZN.
Everyone that has built something meaningful must have gotten in touch with “the dark side”. I woke up thinking about how it probably impulsed many to win.
Once a week, right after a formal turndown, I get a founder asking me if I can introduce them to other investors. This is a weak and stupid ask.
