[00:00:22] Crayola ad; ways to scale - code, media, product, people. AI trends.

[00:01:01] Scaling equals more money. Use code or media to scale. Software companies are valuable due to instant and low-cost product delivery. Media is another way to scale.

[00:02:39] Using AI and dividing tasks can increase productivity and reduce the need for managing many people in a business process. Avis' reverse psychology ad campaign focused on being the second-best rental car company.

[00:03:32] Avis used their second-place status to create a positive image by promising to be nicer than the number one rental car company, Hertz. This tactic was similar to a billboard comical rivalry between late-night TV show hosts.

[00:04:18] A person loves Philips Hue Lights, uses them exclusively, and has many connected devices in their home.

[00:04:54] The writer uses an internet switch to control multiple Philips Hue lights with a single button press, making it easy to change the vibe of a room or house. They prefer using buttons over voice control.

[00:05:36] Nev uses Phillips Hue to create colorful lighting for work calls, and reflects on the concept of luck.

[00:06:14] Luck can be measured as units, but circumstances cannot be added to increase luck.

[00:07:19] Creating luck involves beating others and sharing thoughts with like-minded individuals. Go to places with successful people. Key takeaways: you can create and build luck; creating more units of luck leads to increased luck.
