Hope you had a relaxing and enjoyable Thanksgiving holiday. There’s no better day to take a nap than the one that stems from a flurry of morning cooking, a ridiculously early dinner time, and tryptophan, the amino acid in turkey that’s high on serotonin and melatonin. Mmmm.

Whether you’re enjoying today by getting a jump start on holiday shopping with Black Friday deals, or piling on the leftovers into the year’s best sandwich ahead of round two of nap time, we wish you a cozy, gratitude-filled day and weekend. 

Here’s a three-course recap of the week’s top stories from PrivCo:

  • Monday we looked at how OKRs can be applied not only to our professional ambitions but to the daunting task of fixing the climate crisis. We profiled John Doerr’s new book, Speed and Scale, about tackling climate change in measurable and scalable ways. Go back for seconds here.

  • Tuesday we examined the historic bipartisan deal for fixing the U.S.’s infrastructure problem. What industries stand to benefit from the renewed and expanded federal funding to make America function again? Fill up on the savory details here.

  • With so much holiday travel threatening our serenity, where do we stand on fully self-driving cars? We looked at the companies pouring resources into a safer, “look ma, no hands” future. Enjoy a second helping here.
