Thoughts

No, ‘if, ands, or buts’. Just get started.

Extras

I enjoyed listening to Shane Parrish's Christopher Davis interview recently. It's full of valuable life advice, fun Charlie Munger exchanges, and practical takeaways.

One such nugget: Davis, writing insurance letters as a young man working for his grandfather, complained that nobody reads them, so why bother? His grandfather informed him, "We write it for ourselves" to clarify our thinking, not for whoever may or may not be reading them.


Good luck and Godspeed,
