Life Lessons From Other Fields And Recommendations For Your Bookshelf

Making informed investment decisions is about to get easier for you


Google Finance is getting a desktop and mobile redesign that is focused on making it easier to find data for stocks you’re interested in, market trends and relevant news to make more informed investment decisions. This, Google believes, will make it easy for you to find and compare information by organizing it in a helpful way.


Google is not just a search box


Everything you are doing online is being watched and tracked. Every single action you take is carefully monitored and recorded. This is the crux of The Social Dilemma, a Netflix documentary. It is a must-watch if you are one of those who believe that humanity greatest existential is Social Media, not climate change. You might want to read this before you watch.


Update your bookshelf


Nothing to see here, just a few recommendations of books talking about money: what it is, how to use it, and why you’ve been thinking about it wrong all these years. I Will Teach You To Be Rich by Ramit Sethi will run you through to help you save and invest. The Psychology of Money is a brand new book from Morgan Housel. He tells 19 short stories that explore how people think about money. The Ascent of Money by Niall Ferguson travels from ancient Mesopotamia to 21st-century crypto wallets to show how money, credit and finance have evolved throughout history.


Do more with your money


What you do with your money is one of life’s biggest dilemmas. Whether you choose to spend it all, save, or invest, you’ll discover varying levels of risk and potential reward – and how much weight you give to each will depend entirely on your goals. So let ALAT help you to make the right decision for you.


The world is a big university


Before you get lost in the flurry of other activities this weekend, take a moment to think of how many life lessons this year has taught you. David Perrell has listed 43 different lessons you can learn from 43 different fields. Here are some of the most interesting ones:

  • Coding: Don’t underestimate the power of a computer with internet access.
  • Cooking: Your outputs are only as good as your inputs. Damn true!
  • Airplanes: Humans are quick to adjust to their new reality. An activity can go from impossible, to marvellous, to mundane faster than you think.

Remember, sharing is caring and rewarding. Be kind this weekend. You can start by spreading the news. Share this with a friend. Friends don’t let friends miss out on stuff like this. We’ll see you next week.
