Podcast Notes Key Takeaways
* Investments in crypto are extremely risky
* Kevin only keeps 5% of his portfolio in it
* When it grows excessively, he sells some of it to rebalance his portfolio
* Investing is a great playing field to assess the effectiveness of your decision making
* You can then transfer what you learn in investing to the rest of your life
* “We are all investors; of time, energy capital and you can choose to become better at those things or you can remain blissfully unaware” Tim Ferriss
* Rather than time-management, Tim is focusing more on energy management
* He found that the most energizing things he does are often in Nature
* Specifically when cultivating awareness and appreciation for Nature
* You should only choose books that you are sad to see end
* If Tim is rushing through a book, he takes it as a sign to drop it
* “If you eat an animal but you won’t kill it, you are way disconnected from nature” Kevin Rose
