I read and overthink. New Delhi | Melbourne

A list of habits that kill your network and how to avoid them.

Without a doubt, one of the best skills that you can develop in life is the ability to network effectively. Why do some people get away with being assholes while others are left pondering what they did they do wrong again? Why do the kind people always get hurt the most?

The answer lies in our habits, our social habits to be precise.

I like reading and observing people’s behavior, what makes them tick and what is it that makes successful people successful and why do some people keep on growing year on year exponentially.

From my keen observations, the…

The tech industry is moving fast and everybody’s running with it. As of today, the crypto industry is winning the race. One of the front runners in the race is one of the world’s most famous cryptocurrencies: Ethereum. Ethereum has been gaining momentum in price and has had an exponential increase in the number of users in the past couple of years.

It is the second-largest cryptocurrency, and it functions on a decentralized software platform through which smart contracts and decentralized apps can be built very easily.

Ethereum has been making strides towards its goal of becoming a decentralized global…

It might just be worth it

Ten years ago, most people would have laughed if you said you hold part of your investment portfolio in cryptocurrency. Today probably they are asking you for investment advice. People who got into crypto at the beginning are probably considered financial gurus right now, people like Chamath Palihipitya and the Winklevoss Twins are billionaires and are acclaimed celebrity figures in the crypto space.

However, it’s not too late for us mortals who are just entering the crypto trading world.

Like it or not, cryptocurrency is practically everywhere these days and no longer just for day traders and nerds. In fact…

And why you should start too.

Signs of a widening embrace across the financial services industry sent Bitcoin to new heights, with the cryptocurrency closing in on $60,000 for the first time.

The returns on crypto investments are making every other investment since the invention of money look

The growth in cryptocurrencies and their usage, namely Bitcoin and Ethereum is a mute agitation.

It’s possible to get filthy rich by investing in cryptocurrency. But you could also lose all your money. How can both of those things be true? Well, like most investments, crypto assets come with a host of risks as well as vast potential…

And why you should invest in both.

It is no doubt that investors are becoming interested in the cryptocurrency markets. The crypto industry has been growing steadily, both in terms of value and in terms of users worldwide. I believe that this technology has gained more hype than the internet bubble.

Bitcoin was first traded back in 2009. Unlike today, you could buy one of the new digital tokens for less than 1 cent. Prices steadily rose — albeit with some volatility over the years — and in March 2021 hit an all-time high of nearly $60,000. Ethereum debuted in 2015 at less than $3 and soared…

The end of an era

Amazon founder Jeff Bezos has announced that he will be stepping down as the CEO ad transitioning into the role of the executive chairman after 27 years at the helm. He will still be Amazon's largest shareholder. He will be handling the day-to-day controls of the company to Andy Jassy, his long-time head of Amazon Web Services, a swiftly growing division that has almost singlehandedly changed the way companies buy the technology that powers their businesses.

With this new development comes a partial end to one of the most epic runs in modern business history. Under Bezos’s stewardship, Amazon evolved…

Spoilers ahead

The show begins with the screeching noise of a car running over a dog and Frank (Kevin Spacey as the protagonist) comes out on the road to see what has happened and finds the dog whimpering and trying to survive. Frank throughout the show is talking to us the viewers, explaining, and telling us how things are and what is going to happen.

In the first scene, he looks at the viewer and says, “There are two kinds of pain. The sort of pain that makes you strong, or useless pain. The sort of pain that’s only suffering. I have…

“I can’t envision a world where I’m not making YouTube videos.”- Jimmy Donaldson

Jimmy Donaldson aka Mr. Beast has cracked the YouTube algorithm and has made his way into the top YouTubers in the world. In January 2018, Jimmy Donaldson, better known as Mr. Beast, had around two million subscribers. At the time of this writing, he has more than 51 million subscribers on his channel. That is what defines the magic of the compound effect.

Jimmy was only 13 years old when he uploaded his first video to YouTube back in February 2012 under the username “MrBeast6000.” For the first few years, MrBeast attempted, unsuccessfully, to master the YouTube algorithm by creating…

Your job as a smart investor is to separate the facts and the news from the fiction and the noise.- Chamath Palihapitiya

Chamath Palihapitiya was born on 3rd September 1976 in Sri Lanka. Chamath had moved to Canada with his family at the young age of six. He later attained a degree in electrical engineering at The University of Waterloo. He had been passionate about wealth from a young age and was always in awe of the Forbes annual list of the richest people in the world and someday yearned to be a part of that group.

Now that he is rich, he wants to use wealth “as a bridge to a more meaningful, long-term, largely unrealistic goal that can keep you…

In business, I look for economic castles protected by unbreachable ‘moats’.- Warren Buffet

An essential component of Warren Buffets' investment strategy is what he calls a ‘moat’. In business, a moat refers to the competitive advantage of a company to sustain and protect its long-term profits and market share from competing firms. Like its namesake — a water-filled ditch — Buffett’s moat refers to a defensive barrier, but instead of protecting a castle, it helps prevent a company’s profits from being eroded by competitors.

Buffet’s advice to business managers is to make their moats bigger and wider. …
