3 Positions of Leverage

3 Positions of Leverage

Leverage is a force multiplier for your judgment. 3 options:

  • Labor: making other humans working for you. It is the oldest form of leverage, and actually not a great one in the modern world. Because managing other people is incredibly messy.
  • Money: every time you make a decision, you multiply it with money. It’s how wealth was created in the last century.
  • Products with no marginal cost of replication: books, media, movies, and code. Code is probably the most powerful form of permissionless leverage. All you need is a computer—you don’t need anyone’s permission.

If you can’t decide, the answer is no

Productise Yourself

The path to success is to find a way to automate your uniqueness. "Productise" is about leverage and "Yourself" is about accountability.

If you’re looking toward getting wealthy, you should ask yourself:

  • “Is this authentic to me? Is it myself that I am projecting?”

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Shankul Varada

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Ghazala Begum

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
