Weekly Reflection: Week One Hundred Forty-Seven

This is my one-hundred-forty-seventh weekly reflection. Here are my takeaways from this week:

  • Tech Layoffs – This week Google announced a 12,000 headcount reduction. Earlier this week Microsoft announced a 10,000 headcount reduction. The layoffs are terrible for those impacted. I believe we’ll see a material uptick in entrepreneurship and more of these people migrating to lower-cost cities like Atlanta.
  • Focus on Simple Ideas I’ve been thinking about this all week. Outsized success is the result of intensity applied to simple ideas.  
  • History Lesson – I had a long conversation with an elder about historical events I wasn’t familiar with that shaped the world in ways I wasn’t aware of. I’ve been thinking about this conversation and learning more about the events he shared with me. I want to start digging into history more to better understand the events that led to today’s society.  

Week one hundred forty-seven was a steady week. Looking forward to next week!
