The Mission Economy, by Mariana Mazzucato! Relevant to work in GPS

Just finished The Spy and the Traitor by Ben Macintyre and Smoke Gets in Your Eyes by Caitlin Doughty - both very good!

Heard a podcast with Doughty on it, where she talked about her book - fascinating stuff (my father in law owns mortuaries, what a kooky cottage industry)

Enjoyed “No Rules Rules” about Netflix CEO

Range and atomic habits right now. But favorite non-fiction story is the devil in the white city.

I know we all love the work from home (or do we?) but does anyone actually miss traveling for their consulting engagements and all the fun that goes along with it? The late nights at the office then the bar and random hookups and excitement and all that? Sure it’s a grind but I think I actually miss it too. Maybe I just miss seeing people at work or seeing people at all. I wonder if we’ll ever get back to that.
