Each day, I ‘pay myself’ a minimum of one hour but ideally two. It’s my time to learn, be entertained, lower stress and improve myself. The best investment you’ll make is in yourself.
Here’s a collection of some great psychology, finance and investing podcasts, books and blogs, I consumed this week. Reading for knowledge — rather than entertainment — is really important to me.
Collaborative Fund is one of my must-read blogs. It focuses on venture capital, risk, behaviour, investing strategy and more.
Written by Shane Parrish, you won’t find a better blog and community of people who want to think better. I’m working my way through Farnam’s 113 mental models.
Farnam Street’s learnings apply as much to investing as they do business and everyday life.
I enjoyed this book. It’s an easy read for someone with an intermediate level of financial literacy. Greenblatt’s distinct ‘special situations’ investing is vividly recalled with a style of writing that is witty and candid. I’m not certain the strategies employed would be effective in Australia today, but it was insightful nonetheless.
Still reading. I’ve been reading this book for months. It’s a deep dive into the metaphysics of quality and value.
Invest Like The Best
One of the best podcasts I know. This week, I listened to these podcasts:
Animal Spirits Podcast
This is a new podcast by Mike Batnick and Ben Carlson of Ritholtz Wealth Management. It is shorter episodes, which makes them easy listening when you’re in the car or train for 20 minutes. The podcasts are a funny and insightful take on financial markets and investing. They also share some of their best books and articles from the week.
