Hello my friends,

This week features an article from author Sahil Bloom called "On Competitive Advantage."

It's a short read, as it originates from a Twitter thread he did a while back. There are some lesser talked about nuggets of wisdom weaved throughout the post — a few I didn't expect but have proved true in my experience.

Two of his competitive advantages that register with me are "High Tolerance for Failure" and "Relentless Consistency." In my experience, if you can marry these two concepts, you will outperform 99% of people.

Until next time,
