💌 What if Uber Drivers Co-Owned Uber: The Case for Ownership Economy - We have written about the unbundling of work from employment, emergence of the passion economy, and the Great Resignation. Here we explore the ownership economy with the help of a case study on Brain Trust, a decentralized talent network that matches top talent with interesting, well paid opportunities.
💌 Love, loss and beyond - In the last few years, many of us have lost loved ones. War, pandemic, disillusion with established norms have made things even more tricky. We can’t outwork it, we can’t distract ourselves beyond a point, we can’t ignore it, we can’t suffer alone. All we can try and do is to rebuild ourselves - together.
💌 Book Review - Difficult Conversations: How to Discuss What Matters Most - Yogi worked at Facebook for 6 years as a Research Scientist, enjoyed his job and earned well. Then something surprising happened. He interviewed at a few places, negotiated well and got a $1.05 million offer for a similar job he was doing at Facebook. After reflection and considering what he wanted to do with his life, he decided to say no to the million dollar job and become a coach and a teacher. Yogi wrote this book review. He is also teaching a course on NC.

To do effective work, to unleash your creativity, you need to block time to change pace, space, context. If you find yourself working all the time, you are likely doing shallow work. It is intellectual lethargy at its best. Deep work, on the other hand, needs an uncluttered mind that has a clear sense of when it needs to switch on and switch off.
That’s precisely why we planned the learning retreat in Chail. After 2 years of zoom gloom, pushing people in a conference room to listen to lectures didn’t seem exciting. We encourage you to take a weekend away from the daily humdrum of life.
P.S. We will be staying here.
