    EXECUTION The CASE and CAPE Master Plan

    I really have conviction issues. I don't think a book is a great first product (launch ... and let nobody know), so I am planning to work on the SaaS solution and growing a mailing list first. The repository exists, just need a definitive direction regarding the functional and technical concept...

    Reading books

    Everybody here offered their take on that. Cross referencing, making reading a habit / reading a lot, highlights in digital copies etc. You never asked about how we apply things we read in our lives. And it depends too much on the content, so the quesion is too generic. On a high level there is...

    HOT TOPIC Is a market crash coming? Or massive hyper-inflation?

    Do you see anything out of the ordinary, today specifically? From what I have seen today fits nicely into a current rise and fall cycle. When you look at the 6 months NASDAQ Composite chart it still looks like there are short but strong declines within an overall upward trend. Anything in...

    Reading books

    Cross referencing. When it comes to non-fiction there is overlap between the books. I love "The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People", because it provides the perfect frame. Basics of Leadership, Management, Execution, Marketing, Negotiating, Collaborating and Improving are all covered on a high...

    HOT TOPIC Fed Up With Your Country? Where Is Left to Go?

    I find it a little strange that people seem to agree that governments are the problem and all businesses are oppressed. As I see it, that is the wrong diagnosis. But I know, I know. Wrong crowd. To some degree we see the failure of capitalism as a system that magically self-regulates. There...

    HOT TOPIC Fed Up With Your Country? Where Is Left to Go?

    Personally I usually think more about what would have to happen for the issues to be fixed. Firefly / Serenity freedom doesn't appeal to me. Interesting to see Ireland listed here. Never thought much about it until I saw "Inside Job" recently. My brother says after they got completely wrecked...

    EXECUTION Starting my own Game Development Studio

    The mindset sounds a lot more healthy in general. No, not the "Should I count this as a loss and move on from my game ideas?" You seem to have a belief issue now. You should be able to get pretty far with shitty placeholder graphics. That said, I think that kind of doubt is healthy if it gets...

    EXECUTION The CASE and CAPE Master Plan

    I registered solidindie.com after reading "The Great Rat-Race Escape". The Creataur idea has evolved some more. I have a better idea of what microservices the idea will need, but new challenges keep popping up. Feels like I am going in a circle, but after reading the book I am once again where...

    HOT TOPIC The Great Rat-Race Escape by MJ DeMarco, Now Available (All formats!)

    Interesting. "The Phoenix Project" pushes this even further, with the narrator being a person in the story that explains concepts to the protagonist. Somewhat awkward, but I think it worked okayish. Guess with the 120 strategies and principles being emphasized so strongly it did not feel like...

    HOT TOPIC The Great Rat-Race Escape by MJ DeMarco, Now Available (All formats!)

    Finally finished! Just wrote a review in German for the English Kindle version. I suppose the book is mostly an attempt at closing a gap between real value and utility value!? Wondering is there is more frustration involved :happy: , or more scientific curiosity. Or maybe I just got the wrong...

    HOT TOPIC Reddit r/WSB bankrupts Hedge Fund using Robinhood

    Guess the new tweets mostly support my theory. He says we should not care about "how, where or why", just about "how much" room there is to run ( View: https://twitter.com/TheRoaringKitty/status/1404831172946018305 ). I think he is still throwing out Tweets that tell us to look into different...

    HOT TOPIC Reddit r/WSB bankrupts Hedge Fund using Robinhood

    They did it. Got completely destroyed over there ^^. Starting to think Youtube and Reddit are professionally leading lambs to the slaughter. Went through the trouble and quoted the part in "Naked, Short and Greedy" for DDintoGME that really got to me. Might as well post this here. This seems...

    HOT TOPIC Reddit r/WSB bankrupts Hedge Fund using Robinhood

    Summarized my thoughts. Seems like I was able post it at DDintoGME and am curious to see how well this ages and if it will be taken down or just voted down: View: https://www.reddit.com/r/DDintoGME/comments/ny2jtr/what_if_our_kitty_posted_some_sobering_tweets/
