Issue #17  (How To Get Rick Without Getting Lucky) 06/10/19

One of the resources in this week's issue is a Tweetstorm called "How to Get Rich (without getting lucky)." Sounds a bit click-baity, but seems to have some substance to it and isn't about "getting rich quick" or anything like that.

If you're interested in that content, the author also links to a YouTube playlist of podcasts on the same subject which is also referenced on this extensive post. Lots of stuff in all those sources, if that's something that catches your fancy.

Now on to this week's hand-picked productivity links!
