What to do:

  1. Develop a skill that seems like fun to you but work to others (that also makes money). Go all-in when you find it.
  2. Build a good (online) reputation and take risks while using your real name.
  3. Make digital media content (books, blogs, YouTube, tweets, podcasts). Make digital media content about your interests, investing, and problem solving.
  4. Take the money you generate from your skills and digital media content and invest into assets like crypto, stocks, and real estate.

Tips:

  • Reading (mental models) and experiences are how you develop better decision making. Read Farnam Street Blog.
  • Enjoying life is about enjoying the process of problem solving.
