Five Thought Friday – July 31

I realized that I needed to start updating this blog again. There are some amazing things happening, and I’ll be certain to keep you updated. In the meantime, I thought I would start by sharing what I’ve been reading and learning lately. Every Friday I’ll post five thoughts to share. Hopefully you’ll find some of these interesting.

  1. Leadership: I recently finished Team of Teams by General Stanley McChrystal. It’s fantastic book. The whole premise is that in a complex world, we have to rely on networks to defeat networks. Organizations that can deal with complex problems need to be structured as a network, not as a true hierarchical chain. To scale this network, we require a team of teams.
  2. Humor: This Youtube video will probably be one of the funniest things you see all week.
  3. Finance: This podcast on the Tim Ferriss show with Chris Sacca is one of the best podcasts I’ve heard in a while. In it, they discuss strategies for startup investing, personal development, and running businesses. It’s definitely worth a listen.
  4. Business: Currently, I’m looking to add one client to the Analytive portfolio. If you or someone you know could benefit from our digital marketing, analytics, and development efforts, please hit me up.
  5. Science/Interesting: Toyota introduces a hydrogen car. Elon Musk explains why hydrogen fueled cars are dumb.
