Hey I'm Skylor đź‘‹

  • I grew up near the literal north pole in the Northwest Territories, Canada
  • I write a newsletter, run Ageless, & coach 100s of high schoolers to outlier outcomes at TKS‍
  • I'm a learning machine. Check out my reading list for the content I've found most valuable

Things I believe:

  • Speed matters; it's important to do things fast
  • Smaller teams are more productive; most companies are 2-5x overstaffed
  • Time is more important than money; few would trade lives with Buffett or Munger 1:1 today
  • What you work on is more important than how hard; janitors work hard but lack leverage
  • Deliver to the world what you would want on the other end
  • Ignore 'most people' arguments; most people end up divorced, obese, and broke
  • To retire is to expire. Build a life you don't need to 'retire' from
  • If you're an ambitious person you need to work, its almost like a medical condition
  • Women are hypergamous. The average man is a '3/10' while the average woman is a '6/10'
  • By 2030, Bitcoin will hit $1M, Tesla will hit a $10T market cap and expected lifespan for a newborn will hit 100
  • US health system is in shambles and will bankrupt the US in the 2050s (currently 20% of GDP)
  • Our western diet is hijacking our biology and will be looked upon similarly to smoking
  • Incentives matter and are great fortune tellers; show me the incentive I'll show you the outcome
  • Sales and distribution is just as important as product
