💌 6 Things Thursday #31


Here’s another microdose of things I consumed or created this week, written by me Raad— Chief Psychonaut Officer at Space Cult.

1/ Letters I compiled

Every Berkshire Hathway Shareholder Letter in 1 PDF

Was inspired to this after reading Jeff Bezos’ Amazon letters, which apparently was modeled after Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway annual shareholder letters. I was bored in quarantine so decided to compile every letter he wrote in the last 43 years because I think it’s one of the most profound business materials anyone could ever read.

2/ My WFH desk set up

3/ An album I’ve been working to

Nine Inch Nails — Ghosts V: Together

Spotify / Apple Music / YouTube Music / Google Play / Tidal

If you’re still not into listening to ambient music, Ghosts V will help you see the light. This collection is meditative, spacey, and soothing. I believe there’s a big correlation between music consumption and productivity.

4/ My current interests (Q2 ‘20)

This is my list of things I’m currently interested in and will spend the next 3 months learning as much as possible about them. Please reply back if you have any good resources on any of these topics:

  • Writing a short film screenplay

  • AirPods as a platform

  • Resume 2.0

  • Building a cabin in the woods

  • Cash flow analytics

  • Global macroeconomics

  • Psychedelic-assisted therapy

5/ A link I clicked

Google Earth Timelapse

How the earth has changed over the past 35 years.

6/ A quote I’m pondering

“Wealth is a positive sum game and status is a zero-sum game.” — Naval
