I barely worked at all this week. Partially because of Labor Day, partially because I had barely a half day on Tuesday due to travel, partially because I was at a conference Wednesday and Thursday, partially because of my lunch with Tyler Cowen yesterday.
What I’m saying—short post this week
One cool thing I learned at work:
An incredible amount due to the conference I attended. I took copious notes and will be organizing them on Monday.
One cool thing I learned outside of work:
Sohrab Ahmari is an embarrassment to the (less liberal) conservative cause. I think I could have argued his position better. He’s the op-ed editor at the New York Post. I have a daily blog. Like I said: embarrassing.
One example of how I created value at work last week:
Cranked out a bunch of last-minute EconInbox submissions for Justin.
What project I’m currently working on at my BP:
Another big launch coming up, this time on our series about globalization and how it affects the average American. I’m handling most of the launch, including cutting the trailer videos and writing the social posts. I think I’m doing the email copy, too.
What I’m doing to become a better version of myself overall:
Lunch with Tyler was a good start. Now I have to apply his wisdom to my own life. I don’t think I’ll work 16-hour days, though.
What Praxis Monday Session did you attend last week?
None. Happy Labor Day!
