Big thanks to Weijin for her wonderful presentation --
She gets into health, circadian rhythms, work habits, etc. Very smart and talented, it was great having her speak here in Beijing last Sunday.
In Beijing? You should come to one of our talks. Great people, great information, great times. RSVP to sebastian at sebastianmarshall.com
I'll be doing weekly lectures on strategy in whatever city I'm in, starting this coming week in Beijing, China.
I'll either lecture myself or have a guest -- we have a lot of talented people come through with backgrounds in technology, marketing, finance, sales, art, etc. Currently we've got six bedrooms across two apartments that we use to put up visiting guests and partners, and we have a lot of talented people coming through. Some mix of myself and guests/partners will speak on history, money, business, decisionmaking, statistics, etc.

I woke up on Friday in an incredible amount of pain. My ankle, which I injured the night before during a particularly vigorous game of trampoline-dodgeball, had swollen the point that it looked like a bruised potato with toes dangling off.
Even the slight pressure of my blankets sent rushes of pain through my foot. I tried to get out of bed, failed amid a cloud of expletives, and got back in bed where I tried to fight off the pain by gritting my teeth and growling.
This was the day I was supposed to go to Tokyo by way of Beijing, where I had a twenty-four hour layover. As much as I had been looking forward to this trip, it occurred to me that I might not be physically capable of making it to the airport.
