Tesla Is Now Worth More Than Ford and GM – Combined


  • “Tesla is now by far the most valuable car company in America. As I write this on Monday afternoon, Tesla’s market capitalization is $93 billion, compared to $50 billion for General Motors and $37 billion for Ford.”
  • “I’m not the first person to compare Tesla to Apple, but I think the comparison makes sense. Apple has only 15 to 20 percent of the global smartphone market, well below Google’s Android. But the distinctiveness of the iPhone platform, combined with the loyalty of the Apple customer base, means that Apple can charge a premium for the iPhone.”


The one hour strategy

A couple years back, I started to realize a key difference between my good days and my bad days. The good days were generally those in which I had spent an extended chunk of time doing a few things, and the bad days were those in which I had spend many small chunks of time doing a large number of things. To remedy this, I started employing a simple strategy, which I later learned other people had been using and enjoying as well:

At the beginning of any practice/work session, I set a timer for one hour. I then work for an hour. As simple as this sounds, this tiny tweak (setting the timer) drastically increased my productivity and state of mind. It removed the internal struggled associated with the decision of when to quit, and pretty much guaranteed that a decent amount of progress would be made on the project at hand.

In some instances, it eventually became unnecessary. For example, I don’t use it when writing newsletters. Sometimes I’ll just throw a single quote or picture on the the next week’s article, and then move on to something else. But for long term skills that I am attempting to master and projects I’m trying to complete, I find the one hour strategy to be invaluable.


Excerpts from my morning journal

“When we read what early humans thought about causation, about the reason why things are the way they are and move the way they do, we laugh. I wonder if future generations will do the same when they read about our ideas on such topics.”

“How many times have you written that down? How many times have you told that story? Might it be time to move on to something new?”

“It could all fall down at any moment. That’s life. It’s a simple fact that we just have to live with.”
