Weekly Mixtape:

Casey Mullooly: Help “I’ll end with this: even when things seem fine, check on people. Even when you’re scared to get the real answers, check on people. Even when it appears like they have everything together, check on people. Even if you feel like you’re bothering someone, check on people. Even if they don’t ask you to, check on people. And sometimes, you’re going to be the person who needs checking in on. So check in on yourself too. And if you ever feel like it’s too much, I hope you’ll ask for help.”

Morgan Housel: Five Lessons From History “It is too easy to examine history and say, “Look, if you just held on and took a long-term view, things recovered and life went on,” without realizing that mindsets are harder to repair than buildings and cash flows.”
