Get Things Done – Lessons From Yahoo, Google, Netflix And Meta

Google, Meta, and Netflix are part of a small elite group of innovative and successful tech companies of our time. They have made a name for themselves in business and technology. All these companies are pioneering new technologies, products, and services. 


Google’s search engine is a household name synonymous with finding information online. The mission is to “organize the world’s information and make it universally accessible and useful.” They are doing a fabulous job on that. However, the future is still determined by Google’s Bard and the competition with OpenAI and Microsoft.


Formerly known as Facebook, Meta is a social media giant connecting billions worldwide. Meta has not only revolutionized the way we communicate and interact with each other, but it has also changed how businesses and brands reach out to their target audience.

Meta’s acquisition of Oculus has given the company an edge in the virtual reality space, and the prospects of the Metaverse are still in the ‘dust’ – but it will be interesting if the future looks like “Ready Player 1”.


Netflix has disrupted the entertainment industry by offering a subscription-based streaming service and investing in original content. How will the competition with HBO and Disney shape the future? That’s a good question.

But what can we learn from them? 

In the following slides, I focused on essential aspects.

Trail Running 101

Trail running has become popular in recent years, offering a unique way to experience nature while providing a challenging workout. Did you know that trail running has a rich history dating back to the early 20th century

A bit of history

Trail running, also known as mountain running, is a sport that involves running on trails or in the mountains, often over rough terrain and steep inclines. The sport evolved from cross-country running, which originated in England in the early 1900s as a way for athletes to train for long-distance running events.

In the US, trail running became popular in the 1970s as a way for runners to escape the city and explore the great outdoors. The sport grew in popularity in the 1990s with the establishment of trail running races and the formation of trail running clubs. Interesting fact: The number of organized trail races grew by 1,000% from 2008 to 2018 globally. It is a popular activity worldwide, with thousands of races and events occurring every year. The sport has evolved to include ultra-distance races, multi-day stage races, and even adventure runs that involve navigating challenging terrain and obstacles.
