πŸ“š This Week's Reading List

the actual work is not taking notes | obsidianby Kemal Tekce(4min)
Taking notes only helps us build up knowledge. But this knowledge is not worth much if we don’t use it. In addition to building knowledge, we should also build up experience through practice and play. So, the actual work is not reading, taking notes, or connecting your notes.

Self-competition: only compete with your past selfby Anne-Laure Le Cunff (5min)
Competition should be about chasing your own unrealized potential. You will never beat your future selfβ€”by definition, your future self will always be one step ahead. When you try to compete with others, you are following rules instead of creating your own game. You are creating additional stress for yourself by letting others define your performance indicators. You are moving towards someone else’s accomplishments instead of just moving forward in a direction that’s yours to shape.

And a failure to grow can be catastrophic. But for younger companies - and particularly startups - there's an equally strong fixation on a scale. How can a business not just grow, but grow exponentially? In this article, the author explains the differences between growth and scaling.
