And Everything else we published this week
Hello and happy Sunday!
This was a big week for us: in case you missed it, we welcomed Tiago Forte to the bundle.
Tiago’s a master of productivity, and our archives are now stacked with over 60 of his previously paywalled articles. We’ll also be publishing all of his new articles as they come out. We’ve linked a few below, but to learn more about it you can read the announcement here.
What we published this week
In addition to adding Tiago to the bundle, we published four new articles this week totaling ~7,700 words. We got a glimpse into what it’s like fighting a pandemic from the emergency room, examined the potential of a startup called Crash, and took a deep dive into Apple’s goals for health.
What this means for Everything
We’re not stopping at just Tiago! We want to be the #1 bundle for strategy and productivity content on the internet. We have a pipeline full of amazing newsletters — so watch this space for more additions over the coming weeks and months.
Our dream is to build a creative community supporting thinkers from all backgrounds to publish their life’s work, supported directly by readers, in order to make a dent in the way the world thinks. And, most importantly, to democratize access to success in business.
This is step one.
How to manage your subscription
You can subscribe and unsubscribe from individual newsletters inside of the bundle without affecting your overall subscription to what we write. If you want to turn on or off email notifications for a specific newsletter you can manage your settings here.
You probably don’t pay too much attention to the humble Health app on your iPhone, but maybe you should: If all goes according to plan, Apple could become the biggest aggregator of health data by integrating data on connected devices with health records. Rob Litterst and Nathan Baschez delve into the steps needed to make this a reality, and what this could mean for the future of healthcare.
In this follow-up to his healthOS piece, Nathan explains why consumer health hardware probably isn’t a good bet for investors.
⚡️ I’m Married to an Emergency Room Doctor in New York City
Much of the coverage around COVID-19 tends to skew impersonal, all statistics and numbers. This essay is an intimate, heartbreaking look into what it’s like fighting the pandemic from the inside, brought to you from the alternating perspectives of Helena Dea Bala on the homefront and her husband, Alex, in the emergency room.
🤓 Crash: Pitch a Company, Get a Job
Job searchers know the routine: painstakingly tailor your resume and cover letter to a job listing you may or may not hear back from, hit send, then wait. But what better to prove your value to a company than by actually showing it? Crash wants to help candidates get ahead by “pitching” companies and letting their skills do the talking. How sustainable is a service whose success results in a one-time use, though? Adam Keesling shares his thoughts.
