Good read. Here’s a quote I like… “We rich people have been falsely persuaded by our schooling and the affirmation of society, and have convinced ourselves, that we are the main job creators. It’s simply not true. There can never be enough super-rich Americans to power a great economy. I earn about 1,000 times the median American annually, but I don’t buy thousands of times more stuff. My family purchased three cars over the past few years, not 3,000. I buy a few pairs of pants and a few shirts a year, just like most American men. I bought two pairs of the fancy wool pants I am wearing as I write, what my partner Mike calls my “manager pants.” I guess I could have bought 1,000 pairs. But why would I? Instead, I sock my extra money away in savings, where it doesn’t do the country much good.”
This is really quite a nice read and gives you a lot of insight into what goes into turning a speech from a written form of communication to something more conversational and relatable.
We recently bought a bunch of Raspberry-Pis as little gifts for our team but I didn’t take one myself… maybe I should re-think that now! I have one of the USB controllers being used there.
There’s something you can learn from everyone when you pay attention. Watch not only what someone says, but also how they say it. If you disagree with someone’s point of view, there’s even more to learn.
