My Favorites From The Year
Last updated on December 19, 2019
Today, I’m recapping my favorite things from 2019.
I find a lot of stuff every year… but this is the best of the best.
Btw, if you want to stay up-to-date on my favorites during the year — check out my Goodreads and Pocket.
Here are my favorites this year:
- Satya Nadella email to employees on first day as CEO (2014)
- I love how he focuses on ditching the past and really unifying the company.
- “Finally, I truly believe that each of us must find meaning in our work. The best work happens when you know that it’s not just work, but something that will improve other people’s lives.”
- Amazon Prime History
- Love how risky their team was on doing this...while it seems obvious it was a much bigger bet that they were willing to take.
- “I want to draw a moat around our best customers. We’re not going to take our best customers for granted.”
- My friend had 25k emails in Gmail. Created filter to delete everything with the word “unsubscribe” in it. He’s now at 100.
- Help yourself. No one is coming to save you.
- Most underrated job in tech companies today: Email Marketer.
