Scott’s 10 Minute MBA — The #1 Daily Newsletter on Substack

Welcome to my daily email.

If you’re wondering what you’re going to get here, Here’s how I best describe it.

Think about your morning brew. Coffee for some, tea for others. Each of us, embracing our own little kick-start ritual.

Well, this is my morning ritual. A daily journal.

Not your run-of-the-mill newsletter. This is more like a friendly chat. A piece of me, shipped daily, to you.

Don't expect stock market updates or the latest tech hacks.

What you'll get are ideas. The kind that pop up in the shower or keep you awake at night.

This is me chatting about what makes me tick, the puzzles I'm trying to solve. One day, I might ponder the mysteries of the universe. Another, I could be mulling over the mess inside our heads.

We'll talk business, life, creativity, the human condition.

It's a voyage. It can get messy, sometimes confounding, but it's always, always thought-provoking.

Less instruction manual, more adventure diary.

Think of it like your daily peek into my brain.

Some days, you might find it hits close to home. Others, it might stir the pot. And that's exactly the idea.

I hope it kindles thoughts, sparks debate, or simply helps you see things from a different perspective.

It's as up close and personal as it gets. It might resonate with you, or it might not.

And that's totally fine.

All I can offer is that it'll be candid, unfiltered, and genuine. Because that's how thoughts are. They're not neatly packaged. They're not flawless.

If this sounds like your kind of thing, come on in. If not, no hard feelings.

Either way, I'm here. Pondering, questioning, delving. And sharing it all with you.

As the wise Ralph Waldo Emerson said, "The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well."

Here's to making that difference, one thought at a time.

UPDATE: Announcing a Fresh Brew from Daily Thoughts: The Daily Journal Subscription!

I've been reaching out weekly, sharing insights on business and life, touching on the mental models that shape us, and exploring the art of up-skilling. Now, I'm thrilled to introduce something a bit more intimate, a bit more... daily.

If my weekly emails are the hearty meals of thought, consider this new daily email the sip of morning coffee—the ritual that starts your day with a spark.

This isn't your average newsletter. It's a daily journal, a peek into the workings of my mind, delivered to your inbox as I navigate the mysteries and marvels of life, business, and beyond.

What to Expect:

  • Ideas that Stir: From the everyday to the existential, expect musings that resonate and challenge.

  • A Personal Touch: This is a one-on-one with my thought process, unvarnished and unscripted.

  • Diverse Topics: One day we might explore the inner workings of creativity, the next, the intricacies of human behavior.

It's not about providing answers—it's about embarking on a quest together, considering questions you might not have asked yourself before.
