2. Productivity Method: Tiago Forte’s 4 Pillars of Productivity (Forte Lab)

In a world where productivity often feels synonymous with constant busyness, Tiago Forte presents a different perspective and proposes a method that focuses on the nature of digital life.

Forte’s approach revolves around viewing productivity as a structured building with four essential pillars: the digital calendar, task manager, digital note-taking, and read-later system. These pillars serve as the foundation for managing a productive life in the modern world.

At the core of Forte’s philosophy are two fundamental questions:

  • What’s Your Productivity Potential?
  • How can humans reach their creative potential?

Through his research and work at Forte Labs, he explores innovative ways to organize our digital lives to unlock our full potential.

3. Case Study: 23andMe Downfall – What Went Wrong? (WSJ)

23andMe has been a lot of things throughout its history. Founded in 2006, by Anne Wojcicki, Linda Avey, and Paul Cusenza, as a genetic testing company that provides insights into people’s ancestry and health risks from tubes of spit they send through the mail.

It’s also a data company, having DNA samples from some 10 million people who have consented to sharing their genetic information for research. And it’s a pharmaceutical company developing its own drugs based on discoveries gleaned from its genetic datasets.

Valued at $6 billion in 2021 when it went public, 23andMe now risks being delisted from the Nasdaq as its stock continues to trade below $1 a share.

Problematic business model? Lack of focus? Law suites due to privacy breach?
WSJ explains what went wrong. Wojcicki, by the way, is optimistic about the future.
