Tech Friend - October Issue 🌤

Hi there,
I hope this email finds you well.
It’s the time of the year when people start dissing Apple’s new phone launches with the expectation of wanting a completely new “phone”. - whatever that means! I remember reading this Fast Company article from 2016 which rightly stated:
“When critics ding Apple for its failure to introduce "breakthrough” devices and services, they are missing three key facts about technology: First, that breakthrough moments are unpredictable outcomes of ongoing, incremental innovation; second, that ongoing, behind-the-scenes innovation brings significant benefits, even if it fails to create singular disruptions; and, third, that new technologies only connect broadly when a mainstream audience is ready and has a compelling need. “The world thinks we delivered [a breakthrough] every year while Steve was here,” says Cue. “Those products were developed over a long period of time.”
Tip - try to apply incremental changes in your business or projects than going for something big every year.
Stay motivated,

It took a pandemic to realize:

• Homeschool is going mainstream
• Living at an office is unnecessary
• Telemedicine should be default
• Good hygeine protects everyone
• Megacities aren’t the only option
• Blindly believing experts is risky
• Change can happen really fast
If you want to tackle big problems, try thinking like a bee

There is a paradox here: people tend to want wealth to signal to others that they should be liked and admired. But in reality those other people often bypass admiring you, not because they don’t think wealth is admirable, but because they use your wealth as a benchmark for their own desire to be liked and admired.
The letter I wrote after my son was born said, “You might think you want an expensive car, a fancy watch, and a huge house. But I’m telling you, you don’t. What you want is respect and admiration from other people, and you think having expensive stuff will bring it. It almost never does—especially from the people you want to respect and admire you.
