The Journal no. 8 – February 11, ​2018



Welcome to The Journal. My goal with The Journal is to post once a week a list of everything that I found interesting from investing, design, architecture, and much more. Here is what I found interesting this week:

Falcon Heavy

This week was an incredible week for SpaceX. On February 6, 2018, at 3:45 p.m. EST,  they launched their most powerful rocket. Watching the live stream of the rocket was incredible and I was very lucky to watch it in real time. This was like the moon landing for me, an absolute historical movement. As a Tesla Shareholder, for me, the cherry on top of the cake was that the dummy payload on the flight was Elon Musk’s midnight cherry Tesla Roadster.

The Power of Dividend Investing

This is one of the best infographics about investing I have seen this year. I knew that, if you invested in a company paying a dividend, you would have a better return than a company that doesn’t pay dividends. This infographic opened my eyes about the power of investing.

Thanks for reading, see you next week!
