What Warren Buffet's $300,000 haircut can teach us about success, compounding, and sustainable well-being. Consistency is the key.
«the law of compounding gains, which goes something like this: small investments made consistently over time build upon themselves and, eventually, amount to something big.»
I’m planning to write more, to publish, maybe daily and it has me thinking about the topic of consistency. So maybe you want to write more too, or study more, or get to the gym, or prioritize…
«Anyone can publish every day if they decide to let what they publish be imperfect. As Seth Godin says, “show me all of your bad writing.”»
In our pursuit of improvement, we’re often told consistency is key. But obsessing over productivity means ignoring how our days vary – and how we vary within them

How does Refind curate?
It’s a mix of human and algorithmic curation, following a number of steps:
- We monitor 10k+ sources and 1k+ thought leaders on hundreds of topics—publications, blogs, news sites, newsletters, Substack, Medium, Twitter, etc.
- In addition, our users save links from around the web using our Save buttons and our extensions.
- Our algorithm processes 100k+ new links every day and uses external signals to find the most relevant ones, focusing on timeless pieces.
- Our community of active users gets 5 links every day, tailored to their interests. They provide feedback via implicit and explicit signals: open, read, listen, share, add to reading list, save to «Made me smarter», «More/less like this», etc.
- Our algorithm uses these internal signals to refine the selection.
- In addition, we have expert curators who manually curate niche topics.
The result: lists of the best and most useful articles on hundreds of topics.
