Hi, I’m Matt. Welcome to Steady Beats: a newsletter about building the middle-aged life you want in small and steady beats.
Some weeks, life presents priorities other than writing. This past week was one of those, with an unplanned detour commanding my time, energy, and focus. But fear not; here’s a few links to writing, photos, and music I’ve loved lately.
Chris Coffman shared a piece from Mark Andressen arguing AI won’t displace workers, because entrenched regulation and bureaucracy will prevent AI-fueled innovation from taking root. Fascinating angle.
Louie Bacaj and Chris Wong have partnered with Daniel Vassallo to start a newsletter about taking low-risk entrepreneurial chances. It’s called Small Bets, and here’s the first edition.
David Perell wrote a killer thread on how the movie Mean Girls reveals the dark side of human psychology.
Leo Mascaro shares his cool photos in his New York Photo City Substack. Love this one:

Finally this week, my daughter (who’s good at finding new music) has turned me on to singer Noah Kahan. Here’s Northern Attitude:
Thank you for reading.
Let’s keep the Steady Beats going. 💚
Thanks for the shout-out, Matt! 🙌🏼
