Who has taken a huge risk and failed? LinkedIn, business forums, and media love to normalize the “all-in” risks that led to reward, but who has a true failure story? How did or how are you working to come back from it? Life lessons exist in failure. Sharing these could hopefully help someone else facing the same crossroads.
My law school and first years of practice were pretty hard (stressful) untill I learned this lesson. Figure out your stress release (that is healthy) and use it as often as needed. I just went to the gym at lunch because I found out I will be taking on the responsibility of 2 full time people.

Want to learn lawn tennis. Any recommendations for good tennis lessons in NYC (preferably close to East Village)
Yesterday was a good day. I was really impressed with myself. I woke up at 5, practiced dance lessons, did two water colors, made breakfast and tea, got to work by 10, put in 8-10 hours of solid work and then came home. It’s been ages since I painted or danced. However today, I slept till 7:00, did not work out or have food. Still got to work by 10 and did 8 solid hours of work. Some days are good and some are just okay. And that is okay. Trying to build on my good days and we all can. :)
I’ve been burned by the stock market before trading options (when the market bottomed out in 2016) and I learned my lesson on recklessly speculating on spikes and dips in the market. Anyone else feel like this situation is gonna create a class of retail investors who are over confident in the “ease” of timing the market, without doing an research, after all this dies down?

Sunday discussion. CEO Marc Benioff feels that companies should go beyond capitalism and push “social change”. Let’s take Netflix / Dave Chapelle as the example, is it the CSR of Netflix to moderate the content they present and we pay for?
