📚 This Week's Reading List


Do Things that Don't Scale by Paul Graham (16min)
One of the most common types of advice we give at Y Combinator is to do things that don't scale. A lot of would-be founders believe that startups either take off or don't. Actually startups take off because the founders make them take off. There may be a handful that just grew by themselves, but usually it takes some sort of push to get them going. Once the engine was going, it would keep going, but there was a separate and laborious process to get it going.

De-Automating My Reading Notes: A New and Better Way For Capturing My Reading Notes in Obsidian by Jamie Todd Rubin (5min)
The author thought that he'd save himself a ton of time by automating as much of the process as possible. But he found that he didn’t really absorb his notes when doing that. It was only when he was culling, curating, and typing in his notes manually that they began to resonate with him. What started out the automation as something cool and interesting, proved less useful than he thought.

Notes Against Note-Taking Systems by Sasha Chapin (2min)
"It’s not that I advocate for no note-taking. I just strongly believe in keeping it as elementary as possible, such that the note-taking itself doesn’t become the thrust of the endeavor. Leonardo da Vinci kept all of his notes in one big book. If he liked something he put it down. This is known as a commonplace book, and it is about how detailed your note-taking system should be unless you plan on thinking more elaborately than Leonardo da Vinci."
