Sunday is for Sharing: Volume 26


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 podcast that explains how blockchain technology works, an article on how to determine which projects are worth your time and much more. Enjoy!

My Favorite Video

This 5 minute video features a group of guys hiking through Hang Sơn Đoòng, the largest cave in the world. The shots around 3:50 look like something straight out of a sci-fi movie.

My Favorite Articles

The Triad of Hustling

via Budgets are Sexy

“Here are the 3 questions to ask yourself whenever you’re reassessing your projects:

  1. How much time are these projects sucking away from me?
  2. How much money are these projects making me?
  3. How much FUN am I really having doing them??”

The Shortcut Is: There Is No Shortcut

via Semi-rad

“You can hack some things: opening jars, technology, occasionally your burrito order. But nothing long-term worth working for can be hacked, and if it can be hacked, it won’t be nearly as meaningful.”

No Dad, I Didn’t Get Fired

via Financial Panther

“Money is important, sure. But I can account for time and happiness too. That’s the beauty of having choices.”

How to Join the Global One-Percenters

via Corporate Monkey CPA

“If your individual net income is over about $32,400, then you too are among the top one percent globally.”

The Vicious Circle of Mediocre Work (and how to break out of it)

via Adrian Zumbrunnen

“If you get up and you start your day answering emails or working on things that are important to others but not to yourself, chances are you’ve already started your day in mediocrity. You’ve just limited your capacity to create something great.”

My Favorite Podcast

Hash Power Episode 1 – Understanding Blockchains

via The Investor’s Field Guide

Love it or hate it, cryptocurrencies are causing some serious disruption in the finance space. While it’s hard to predict which of these currencies, if any, will survive long-term, the blockchain technology underlying these currencies is likely here to stay. This podcast episode offers a great introduction to blockchain technology.

That’s all for this week, thanks for reading 🙂

  1. Hey, Zach – I had no idea until just a moment ago that you were listed among the Best Financial Blogs on Rockstar Finance. Congrats, man! I look forward to keeping up with your writing. Definitely enjoying what I’ve read so far.

    (And agree with your Financial Panther pick. Having met Kevin, I can attest to his good sense and fun conversation at happy hour.)


    1. Hey Cubert – Yeah I’m extremely grateful for Rockstar Finance and all the exposure they have given my blog this year, being listed as one of the Best Blogs is a huge honor for me 🙂

      I actually found your site from the “Up and Coming Blogs” list, so I’m glad they have that list of blogs as well. Thanks for the feedback and stay in touch! 🙂
