Make art and ship. There are enough followers. Do something interesting.
A whole book of motivation to be better. Why would anyone not read it?
"This book is about love and art and change and fear. It’s about overcoming a multigenerational conspiracy designed to sap your creativity and restlessness. It’s about leading and making a difference and it’s about succeeding."
Apart from containing the most sustainable diet plan on the planet, the slow carb diet, this book is filled with teachings to improve your whole life.
Tim perhaps puts it best:
“This book is a Trojan horse full of unexpected transfers.
After reading Crush It! years ago, and then following Gary Vee’s immense social powerhouse rise to fame through Vaynermedia, I caught up on his subsequent books recently.
Although social media and the internet moves fast, the principals and tactics of this book are a must read for anyone producing content for the internet (i.e. everyone).
A bite-sized package of wisdom, some of the text will make you stop and think. Depending on your mood and situation, some pages will make no sense. But persevere, review them often and you will be sure to find something that matches your current state.
Read a page per day for a tiny slice of replenishment for the mind.
I am loving the straight talk and cursing of this book to hammer home the points to my subconscious. Stoicism reworded for a new generation. It is a subtle art, and this book shows yourself that a lot about what you care about is not that important, so you should save yourself for things that are truly important.
“You’re going to die one day. I know that’s kind of obvious, but I just wanted to remind you in case you’d forgotten. You and everyone you know are going to be dead soon. And in the short amount of time between here and there, you have a limited amount of fucks to give. Very few, in fact. And if you go around giving a fuck about everything and everyone without conscious thought or choice—well, then you’re going to get fucked.”
A self-help book disguised as a book about money. This contains some key principals that could be explained in a book the quarter of the size. But the length is intentional to persuade you to actually take action.
If you read last week's recommendation, then contrast the two and get the best advice. Remember life is a paradox - if you can figure out the best of both then you are on the winning track.
If you are an accountant, this will flip your mind on assets. For everyone else it will do the same for wealth and education.
Part of my top three books on finances, this is a must read. It has been the catalyst to change people’s lives. At the very least it may change your mind on your next purchase.
Many famous people have found teachings in the private notes of Marcus Aurelius. Although written long ago, the problems are the same. Like Letters From A Stoic by Seneca, I find Meditations best when consumed little by little daily.
Given the number of articles on the subject it is now a truism that most successful people have an effective morning routine. This is the definitive book on the subject.
If you are thinking that you are not a morning person, then join the club. But I promise you that the opening chapters of this book will inspire you to try it. After a few weeks, I was waking up at 5.20am without an alarm clock raring to go with all the energy of a toddler. This shit can change your life.
If you have a corporate job you need to read this book. A fan of Tim Ferriss? You also need to read this book.
This is the definitive book on time management and how to work effectively and efficiently. For managers and individuals alike, this is a must read.
