The article I wrote on how millionaires think differently than billionaires is now one of the top 10 articles on Medium. It turned out really well, and I think you'd enjoy it.

Excited to collaborate with several amazing folks to create this article!

It's the best article that I'm aware of on how to find a book that will change your life. It is the article I wish I had 15 years ago when I became a ravenous reader.

I personally learned a lot in helping to create it. If you love books, then I think you'll love the article.

Let me know your thoughts!

My biggest surprise in reading 50+ books and interviewing dozens of experts/researchers in the last year is the proven power of being a generalist.

Yet, there is almost a complete lack of articles/books on HOW to be a GOOD generalist.

The goal of this article is to provide specific concrete advice from world-class generalists who are also millionaires and billionaires.
I’m proud of how the article turned out.

I hope you enjoy it.

I'm calling it... 

The best book that I've read in the past year is Poor Charlie's Almanack: The Wit and Wisdom of Charles T. Munger.

Munger (Warren Buffett's longtime business partner) presents a very compelling and unique approach to one's life and career that I haven't seen elsewhere. 

I've already re-read its 500 pages, and it has led me down a rabbit hole of interesting reading, interviewing the chairman of Bain & Co., and ultimately to this article that I wrote.

I hope you enjoy it!

Over the past year, my life and perspective on the world has been dramatically transformed as a result of the interviews I've done of top network scientists. Based on what I've learned, I've changed what I read and the networks that I'm apart of.

Their findings are surprising and counterintuitive.

So, I spent 30+ hour condensing everything I learned into this article so you could apply it to your life as well.
