Sunday is for Sharing is a weekly roundup of my favorite articles, videos, and podcasts I read, viewed, and listened to over the past week.
This week features a video showing the coolest floating ocean dock I’ve ever seen, an article on what one immigrant mom can teach us all about personal finance, and much more. Enjoy!

“The granite counter tops are the same every morning, but the sunset in Kauai with a champagne in hand with your spouse is a memory which changes with time, and so delays hedonic adaptation.”

“My point of sharing is to show that even the best intentioned FI people change their minds, don’t achieve their goal, or don’t actually know what they want out of life, despite what they say on their blogs.”
My Favorite Podcast
Eric Weinstein on Challenging Reality, Working with Peter Thiel, and Destroying Education to Save it
An interview with mathematician and all-around unbelievably impressive Eric Weinstein. Just listening to Eric speak is guaranteed to raise your IQ by 10 points. This podcast covers a lot of topics including the value of books, the current state of education, how to challenge common beliefs, and much more. It’s well worth the listen.
That’s all for this week, thanks for reading 🙂
