Evolution, Byron Bay and Six Tech Waves ūüé° ūüŹĖ ūüĖ• #65

Byron Beauty

These are my recent, favourite Byron Bay eateries and lookouts The random pins on the maps list are either roadside honey / ginger / vegetables /avocado stalls (oh, so, creamy!) or lookouts.

Here’s a local website with a homepage image that *popped* out at me.

Graves’ Research

Having gained much from the Never Ending Quest book mentioned recently, I’ve put together these links for newcomers to Spiral Dynamics and Clare W Graves’ decades of research into human evolution:

Start with the introduction here (thanks Steve McD) and listen to Steve and Nyck‚Äôs weekly, “Future Sense‚ÄĚ radio show for practical, relevant and timely understanding.

Read this

Then read this. Here are the quotes I captured.

Then these images will make sense.

Interesting online news…

‚ÄúLast Friday, Yale, the iconic long-term investor that other endowments look to for guidance, made a historic investment in two funds dedicated to crypto, signalling to many that institutional floodgates are officially open.”
~ Multicoin Capital Management

A podcast for your CEO: the six tech waves explained by entrepreneur and VC Bill Tai. Also includes an easy-to-understand Blockchain tech introduction and the tech’s evolution.

Great to see the progress via Matt’s new Instagram account. Matt was the designer for Do Lectures Australia.

Conversations versus interviews. Oh yeah.

I’m relieved to read that¬†Google plus is closing (thanks KP).

Here’s to now!

Tips from Exceptional Teams, Energy Hacks, & some Fun ūüėé ūüíę ūüėć #25

Here comes a previous issue of Online Highfliers. Sign up to get the latest issue in your inbox.

Hi Sam,

Welcome to the 25th edition of this email. Did you know you can read all past editions right here?

Start with this for some …fun!

Manage your energy, not your time.

Very cool article (thx Rob Farmer) with simplified actions to increase your energy. Skim the checklist below for tips.

This was printed in 2007 and could be a great annual review tool.

Here’s what stuck with entrepreneur¬†Jesse Itzler two years after living with a Navy SEAL (article):

  • Do Something Hard Every Day
  • Don‚Äôt Put Off the Little Things‚ÄĒJust Get Them Done
  • Simplicity
  • Say No to Stuff
  • Have a Plan

And thought provoking topics from Tim Ferriss’ Tools of Titans:

  • Not waiting to pursue your dreams
  • Starting extremely small
  • Morning priming
  • Conviction without stubbornness
  • Stimulating the subconscious mind

What routines and hacks/tips work for you to have a productive day / highly productive moments?

Favourite reads & listens:

  • Have a quick squizz at how¬†better minds are being built¬†(thanks Claire Spencer!)
  • Introductions to blockchain and cryptocurrencies:¬†1, 2, 3 & 4¬†(thanks Ross).
  • Be inspired ~ wise Otto Scharma’s thoughts on how we’re creating new systems (thanks Jan):
  • Creating constantly high performing teams is an amazing achievement. Extreme Teams and Radical Candor¬†“Be a Kick-Ass Boss Without Losing Your Humanity”¬†are two books that I’m enjoying¬†at the moment.Many tips from these¬†books remind¬†me of the¬†Hub Australia¬†culture and communications that¬†Jan Stewart and the crew there¬†have built. Watching their story of success over the past 7+ years, I’ve admired their tenacity and the depth of understanding of each other. It’s helped challenging conversations (“radical candour”) to happen and progress to occur for the individual and¬†the team, creating ripple effects for many others.
  • Comment for reflection:¬†¬†“it’s your role to help people feel necessary” – Sebastian Junger, “Tribe: On Homecoming and Belonging”.

Great online presence:

  • Writer Gen Callahan is extending¬†her online footprint with a new (free) story a day via Instagram. What creative ways can you advertise your professional services?
  • Trevor’s LinkedIn photo ūüôā
  • Leadership topics have you captivated? Enjoy¬†Andy Hedges’ posts on LinkedIn or Twitter.
  • The extended list is here¬†and here.

Thanks for all the replies to the last few newsletters. It’s a treat to learn from you and hear what you enjoyed.

Have a fantastic week!

~ Sam
