The Weekly Five

The Weekly Five 

This week I broke the routine because I traveled to Naples. 

The food has been amazing, we came for 3 days and I’m heading back to London tomorrow.

Anyway, here is my Weekly Five, the list of articles and stuff that I’m enjoying:

1-. The article that taught me something: Fred Wilson one of the VCs I admire the most talks about Tenacity, about persistence, that moment …

“when the doubts start to creep in. Employees start to lose faith, the media turns cruel (sometimes deservedly so), and you’ve got to hold it all together. “You” is the founder, CEO, and/or the leading investors and board members.”

Tenacity: the quality or fact of being able to grip something firmly; grip.

2.- A Great Business Opportunity: This article is about “Ghost Restaurants” basically, UberEats is growing, and will continue to grow. They use data to the trends and the demand for food, e.g. Burgers. I believe is a great opportunity to do “virtual” restaurants with niches on your local community, and tap into UberEats network.

3. How much does an engineer earn?: I find it so fascinating to see the economic progression of any profession. The reason why I like this (besides the curiosity of how much money there’s in place) I think is a great proxy to project your career as a developer to become an architect. (As career journey, not salary wise, that’s circumstantial)

4. An Idea I have: So I went to Naples this week, and 2 things I noticed:

  1. First: All the recommendations that friends send us of what to do in Naples were in a google drive google doc format, 🤔 and

  2. second: Then, when we were in the city, there’s isn’t a good way to know what’s “live/open” or what’s going on around the city to do.

Back in the Local-e days we wanted to make a version of guides (like Lonely Planet), and what to do in the city, but I see the pain point in a different way. I would love to know if you have the same pain point when traveling.

5. My favorite plugin at the moment: So my biggest problem is having TOO MANY OPEN TABS, and I don’t want to close them because I need to work, or make some research. Workana allows you to organize all your tabs in a workspace, it’s just a plugin on Chrome,100% recommend it.

The Book I’m Reading Now: The Intelligent Investor.

“To invest successfully over a lifetime does not require a stratospheric IQ, unusual business insights, or inside information. What’s needed is a sound intellectual framework for making decisions and the ability to keep emotions from corroding that framework.”

Public Personal Commitments:

I broke them all, on my defense, I stick to waking up at 5.30am, and meditating every single day, until I was eating pizza in Naples. 🍕

So, I’m not going to lie, this week I need to sort my week, OKRs, and todos to get back in track, I will though wake up at 5.45am, and go to the gym before 6.30am. 💪

Tweet me on @DanielYubi, for feedback, and to geek out any of the above subjects. 🤝
