What We’re Reading

A few good articles the Collab team came across this week …

Retention

This is amazing:

According to Amazon, four fifths of Prime members who signed up for the service a month after it launched in 2005 are still with the company.

Demography

Quite a set of sentences:

Marriage remains the dominant family structure in Japan and very few children are born outside wedlock. The proportion of people never married by the age of 50 has risen from 5% in 1970 to 19% in 2015.

Efficient

Medical issues necessitated using Lyft and Uber full time. The results:

I’ve spent exactly $2,917.33 since February 18th, 2017. This includes a combination of Uber X, Uber Pool, Lyft, Lyft Line … In my case, I would have paid at least $4,390 [for a car]. Instead, I paid $2,917.33. I saved 33%. That’s a lot of wiggle room for more rides without bothering friends and family.

Beliefs

Very good:

Most people do not realize just how deeply their expectations run, nor how profoundly they believe that they are universal. It is existentially shattering to find that this is not the case.

Decline

Quite a fall:

Stubborn

Lots of truth here:

I suspect that people persist in failure because they don’t even know that they are failing in the first place. And they don’t know they’re failing because they don’t record and track their results.

Have a nice weekend.
