I spent the last few days listening to the audiobook Delivering Happiness by Tony Hsieh. The book is a few years old now but many of the principles it teaches are timeless. Here are few of my favorites.
Envision, create, and believe in your own universe and the universe will form around you
Tony doesn’t expound too much on this concept but I couldn’t help of think of all the lessons taught in the book The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho. The Alchemist is a fantastic book that I learned about by watching an interview with Will Smith. Basically the entire book (‘The Alchemist’) is about this concept.
Avoiding the Death Spiral
This is an email written by Jason Calcanis that is referenced by Tony. There are tons of little nuggets of wisdom in the email and I definitely recommend reading it.
