Episode #57. Hey my friend!
Here is you Sunday surprise: The Timestamp will not talk about French politics on this Election Day in France. Nothing about war in Ukraine either. Just good vibes so that you get fully recharged starting a new week. This episode contains a lot of tips and news mixing the world of tech and sports.
Enjoy reading and growing! It only will take you 5 minutes.
#1. Elon’s biggest Twitter news
TLDR From Elon Musk joins the Twitter board, an article written by Casey Newton. Published on the newsletter called The Platform on April 6, 2022.
A major news of the past week in tech is probably that Elon Musk became a board member at Twitter. He is also the largest individual stockholder of Twitter and counts 80m followers.
Jack Dorsey left Twitter barely 4 month ago after a campaign led by activist investor group Elliot management Corp. Dorsey failed to reach a 100 million active user base. He was replaced by Agrawal… who may now confront Elon as a new potential investor activist since Elliot left.
Elon Musk can bring a massive change to Twitter even if just having 1 seat at the board out of 12. The day he joined the board, Twitter stock grew +27%.
#2. Secret Drive with Lewis #44
TLDR From The profile dossier: Lewis Hamilton, the driver revolutionizing Formula 1, an article written by Polina Pompliano. Published on the newsletter called The Profile on March 30, 2022.
For this F1 racing weekend in Melbourne Australia, get to know some interesting secrets from Lewis Hamilton getting successful. Secrets that led him to win 7 world titles equalling Michael Schumacher’s record:
1- If you are attacked, do not retaliate > focus on your mastery and answer on the track. An evidence that your worst enemy can sometimes be just yourself.
2- Disciplined health routine is a must. Allocate enough time to rest and get ready to perform at your best. Taking care of your body will do good to your mind.
3- Focus while delivering. Lewis carries no cellphone during racing weekends. Stay just focused on delivering success.
#3. $200 million green jacket
TLDR From Why The Masters leaves $200 million on the table an article written by Joseph Pompliano. Published on the newsletter called Huddle Up on April 4, 2022.
On a week-end of election for the French presidency, the biggest golf tournament of the world will be unveiling a new winner. Will Tiger Woods win his 6th green jacket after an incredible (2nd) return 14 months after his massive car crash that almost killed him?
This is an opportunity to look at the finance of this famous golf tournament. The organizers would be earning 200m$ every year in revenue mostly for merchandising. The tournament prize money is surpassing 10m$. But the winner mostly comes to win the most symbolic prize of all: the green jacket.
Experts do believe that Augusta (the other name of this famous golf tournament) is probably leaving another 200m$ on the table every year. TV rights could be generating way more than the 1-year deal it has had for years with CBS.
#4. F1 to Vegas 🎰
TLDR From Formula 1 is headed to the Las Vegas strip, an article written by Joseph Pompliano. Published on the newsletter called Huddle Up on March 31, 2022.
The Las Vegas 2023 F1 Grand Prix will make the USA become the only country to host 3 Formula 1 races on its soil during a season in 2023.
The race will be scheduled on a Saturday night in Vegas and will be aired early morning in Europe. This will be the first time ever that an F1 race will be held on a Saturday.
Liberty Media, the owner of the Formula 1 sports, managed to make F1 the fastest growing sports franchise on social networks. The Netflix series “Drive to Survive” certainly contributed to this popularity boost. The average F1 fan is now 32 years old. Much younger than the average age of a fan of any other major sports franchise.
#5. Ready to Rock at Work
TLDR From Sparked, Discover the work that makes you come alive, a book written by Jonathan Fields in 2022. Takeaways from Patrick Kervern.
The feeling of being ‘Sparked’ by work has five key elements.
When we talk about work that makes you come alive, we’re talking about the confluence of five distinct feelings:
Meaningfulness: The feeling that what you’re doing genuinely matters.
Flow: The state often described as being utterly absorbed or time-fugued, accessing a reservoir of potential, creativity, and efficiency that leaves you feeling amazing.
Excitement and energy: Even if objectively hard, work that takes a lot of effort still gives you back energy, and leaves you excited to wake up and do more of it.
Full expression: The feeling that nothing is being stifled, held back, or denied; your uniqueness, sense of taste, skills, potential, and lens are being brought to bear.
Purpose: The dual feeling of having both an immediate sense of purpose (like you’re working toward something that matters) and a larger sense of purpose in life.
