🚲 Cadence


Relating to last week’s episode about stakeholders is the cadence of work they allow, permit, or encourage.

This week is heavy on examples from entertainment. It’s artsy and I’m okay with that. As the replicable parts of our jobs change with technology the non-replicable parts become more important. One of those is creativity.

In Tyler Cowen’s book, Average Is Over he wondered what was scarce (read: valuable), one idea, “Intellectual property, or good ideas about what should be produced.” Another, “Quality labor with unique skills.” That sounds like jobs with a healthy dose of creativity.

Meta note: As you’ll hear, my cadence has slowed thanks to the allergies stuffing my head like packing peanuts.
