2022年已经过去了两周,刚许下的新年愿望还在坚持吗?本周的分享中,David Perell 回顾了自己过去的一年,Todolist 的创始人 Amir Salihefendić 分享了他管理时间的秘诀。希望这些都能帮到你。


Todoist 的创始人 Amir Salihefendić 分享了他自己的时间管理系统:

  1. 所有的待办事项/已办事项都记录在同一个系统里;
  2. 每天争取做到 todo list zero;
  3. 每天只看两次邮件,不开邮件提醒,所有的邮件处理都集中在那两个时间段;
  4. 每个待办事项都要具体而且做到可执行;所谓可执行是指一件事大致可以在一小时内完成,如果超过这个时间限制,我们需要把这一事项拆分成更小的任务。

David Perell 也带来了他的年度总结。这篇文章除了基本的回顾以外,还有不少真知灼见,非常值得一读。

  1. 平台的算法具有自己的倾向性,创作者要想保持自己的品味,就需要在两者之间做出选择;
  2. 人们通常在冬天夏天休假, 所以要开网课的话,最好避开这两个时间段;
  3. 愿意阅读长文的读者,通常是最忠实的读者,甚至可能变成现实生活中的朋友;
  4. 深度阅读的一大要领就是切断网络;
  5. 每周发布电子报会强迫我们保持写作的节奏。

Dan Wang 是一位生活在上海的智库分析师,最近五年的年末他都会写一封长篇总结,2021年的年度总结里,他花了很大篇幅来讨论中国,有很多独到而深入的观察。


  1. Everything that can go wrong in urban design has gone wrong in Beijing.
  2. Beijing’s goal is to channel entrepreneurial spirit towards useful goals. Profit cannot be the final standard of value, and the country’s best and brightest must work towards national salvation.
  3. The currency of Beijing is power.


  1. But Hong Kong was also the most bureaucratic city I’ve ever lived in. Its business landscape has remained static for decades: the preserve of property developers that has created no noteworthy companies in the last three decades.


  1. There’s a little joke that the ideal company is led by a Beijinger, who would provide the vision, leadership, and government-relations savvy; its finances would be led by someone from Shanghai, and its operations managed by someone from Shenzhen (who would hire people from Sichuan and Anhui to do the actual work).
  2. A distinctive feature of Chinese governance is to continuously fix slogans, like “reform and opening” to move the country away from socialism, and the more recent “common prosperity” to move it back.
  3. I expect that China will grow rich but remain culturally stunted. By my count, the country has produced two cultural works over the last four decades since reform and opening that have proved attractive to the rest of the world: the Three-Body Problem and TikTok.
  4. Instead, the country is more likely to be seen as a land of censorious commies. In the developed world, China’s unfavorability ratings have reached an average of 60%, according to Pew Research.
  5. As Chinese businesses and the state are growing more capable, the leadership is becoming more brutal towards many of its own citizens as well as foreign critics. China is, in other words, a place that both moves fast and breaks things _and_moves fast and breaks people.
  6. The good and/or bad thing about China is that everything changes every 18 months. So it’s all the more important to observe reality on the ground.
  7. China has been mostly shut in 2021, a hundred years after the party’s founding. I think that the government has no real exit plan for this pandemic. Any time it looks like it might relax, another variant shows up. The leadership probably has no firm aspiration to open the border at any date, and instead will assess the situation of variants and medical treatments every so often. If things don’t look good, then it won’t open up.
  8. I guess I’m more on the side that omicron can’t be contained. The government won’t go down without a fight, I’m sure, which means that it will implement lockdowns far more severe than anything it has done to this point.


  1. The Chinese state has long placed greater value on resilience over efficiency, which has dragged down its performance on metrics that economists care about, like return on equity.
  2. The US is ahead of China on the sort of mathematical economics that win Nobel Prizes. But China is ahead of the US on the actual practice of political economy.
  3. The rule of thumb for US businesses is that China makes up half of global demand for most products, from wind turbines to structural steel; and China will account for a third to a half of expected growth over the next decade.
