Strongly believe that you could read all of Paul Graham, Shane Parish and Naval Ravikant and basically be done with the most important learnings of life. Here are some of the best blogs by them:

  • How To Be Successful by Sam Altman One of the best reads there exists. This is super evergreen and is something that I try to revisit every quarter/6 months.
  • Arm Yourself with Specific Knowledge by Naval Ravikant Very important principle to know, very difficult to live by. In tune with the 10,000 hour rule that a lot of folks talk about. Simply love it!
  • How to Think by Shane Parish Shane Parish is one of the best there is. His constant emphasis on thinking better, writing better and especially on things such as → consistency, discipline, boring work are all golden, always!
  • How To Do Great Work by Paul Graham PG Essays are the OG Essays that simplify life. While all of them are great, this recent one is a phenomenal read!

As a Podcaster, consuming the best content is not a choice - its imperative. These are the best podcasts I’ve come across!

→ Acquired FM The best tech podcast there is, period. Start off with the Benchmark/Sequoia Episode if you are a Venture Nerd, if not → start off with the LVMH / Uber Episode.

→ Masters of Scale Reid Hoffman is a legend, this podcast is amazing especially cause Reid is super pointed and knows being a founder + investor. Love the early episodes and how much the pod has transformed. Start off with the early ones if you’re new to it.

→ 20Min VC Harry Stebbings is a huge personal inspiration. An absolute machine, he has the best content in the ecosystem when it comes to Venture. Most of what I know about US Venture is because of this pod, absolute gold!
