Every year, Phil Schiller proclaimed, “This is the best camera we have ever made on an iPhone!” Even though it was getting better, I kept wondering, “how are they going to defy the the laws of physics? They keep making the iPhones thinner, and even with a bump, those lenses and sensors cannot physically do what my DSLR camera could do.”
The answer wasn’t to violate the laws of physics, but rather mimic it by using computation and machine learning.
September is usually peak wedding season, and this year isn’t any different. Weddings fit my personality well. The more emotion and action There is around me, I’ve found I slow down and focus in on what I need to capture. I don’t mind the long hours; that feeling of a tired body, but full heart is so fulfilling.
What I was missing and a lot of people don’t have is that fourth type of luck, luck from your unique character. That’s as Naval puts it, the weirdest and hardest kind of luck, but it’s also the most intriguing. If you can build up that unique brand and mindset, then you can start to make that generous contribution to the world.

Twenty four hours in a day, seven days in a week, you multiply those two numbers and it’s 168 hours. It’s a number that you may not be familiar with, but it’s a good one to know to get a reality check on how you are spending your time.
Say that you have a demanding job and you’re at work for 10 hours Monday through Friday (50 hours). Let’s be generous and say we get 8 hours of sleep each night (56 hours! Wouldn’t that be amazing?). Count two hours a day for eating, and 1 hour at the gym everyday (21 hours). Subtract that from 168 and you still have 41 hours left. That’s another full time job, and time for three episodes of “The Office”.
