For the Creators, Makers & Doers - CMMN WLTH 052
Hello my friends,
These past few weeks I’ve been exploring the idea of mental fitness and coincidentally Shaan Puri tweeted this:
I believe that the potent combination of burnout, due to lack of structure, isolation, etc, and Web3 FOMO will accelerate the concept among high performing creators and builders.
One of the core fundamentals of becoming mentally fit is rigorously curating your inputs and last week I asked you to recommend the podcasts that you think will inform 2022.

Together with Central St. Martins, LVMH is launching a MA in Regenerative Design. The first of its kind, they remain a catalyst for change in the fashion industry.
The upside, downside, and resolution in the war for talent.
A record 4.5m people quit their jobs in November alone; the great
resignationreevaluation is showing no signs of slowing down.
Some of the reasons people are choosing to go it alone:
Earning status on commission
The freedom to choose your own adventure
Stop chasing credentials and build a reputation. “Your market and customers don’t care where you went to school, or even where you worked before.”
The interview questions you should ask to get to what really matters. Don’t hire losers.
Tacit knowledge transfer in the Youtube age.
“Growing up as an aspiring javelin thrower in Kenya, the young Julius Yego was unable to find a coach…Determined to succeed, he instead watched YouTube recordings of Norwegian Olympic javelin thrower Andreas Thorkildsen…Yego went on to win gold in the 2015 World Championships in Beijing [and] silver in the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Olympics.”
The importance of execution and how to think about your business’s competitive advantage.
Four sources of moats:
Economies of scale
Ownership of supply
Ownership of demand
A pre-pandemic framework that is universally helpful. Since the transition to virtual, the ability to read the room during a presentation is your biggest challenge.
Out of Office
Streetartifacts.xyz aim is to archive art from the streets.
The “artifacts” are scanned in textured 3D to create augmented reality versions that you can explore from the comfort of your living room.
Unfortunately, I can’t find any documentation on the future of the project but it seems timely with the growth of digital art and AR accessibility.
