The S.T.U.P.I.D. Email

(Swipe, Thought, Uplifting, Picture, Interesting, Drawing)

This is a fun email for Friday April 1st, 2022. Hope you like it :)

This is a 1991 ad for a shoe called The "Nike Air Huarache"

The headline does a good job of conveying this shoe was designed to conform to your foot with the help of a strapping mechanism.

It's been about 40 years since it's release, and Nike recently re-released this classic shoe in 2022!

Thought:

This slide from ARK Investments shows a chart of how they think about the price of Bitcoin in around 10 years:

The thing I like about the slide is how they breakdown their price expectations with this color coded chart:

While I'm not commenting on the validity of this claim, it's cool to see how they broke it down in this chart using numbers from the real world.

Uplifting:

In the mail the other day I got this cool light-up sign. It didn't include any info on who it was from, so I turned to Twitter to figure out who sent it:

Turns out it was my friend Adam Gilbert from MyBodyTutor (who I use for tracking my food) who sent it!

It's a neat light up sign for my garage gym. I hung it up, check it out:

Picture:

I often dogsit friends dogs, but I am now officially "The Dogfather" of the two dogs on the left (Hugsy & CJ) 😂

When I say "officially," I mean there's an actual legal document that states that I am their "Dog Father" 😂

So I'm taking care of these pups all week while the owners have a baby.

I'm making sure they get plenty of exercise:

Hugsy makes lots of goofy faces:

Also the dogs have won a Paw-litzer Prize 😂

Interesting:

This is a neat "anti-ad" I saw on Instagram trying to recruit salespeople to come work for this company:

It says:
"We don't do catchy ads. We just produce numbers. Come make $100k your first year selling solar."

They are trying to recruit salespeople who just wanna hit their numbers, so this ad plays in perfectly to that!

Drawing:

This is a concept I've liked for a long time: Concentrating more on your "Circle Of Influence."

Circle of Control: Things you can fully control. Focus on these most.

Circle of Influence: Things you can have an impact on but can't fully control.

External Circle: Things you can't control, and therefore shouldn't think about too much.

I've seen many versions of this around the web, and I always have liked the sentiment it portrays:

Hope you enjoyed these little tidbits, have a happy Friday!
Sincerely,
