Of course I am on a semi digital De-Tox but need to update on my latest read. Probably one of the better books I have read in quite some time. Brad is a unique and gifted storyteller. I couldn’t put down The Everything Store and I am having the same feeling about The Upstarts.
Such a history lesson and as an Apprentice VC – I find it all very inspiring.
Don’t really follow the guy and this is the first book I have read by him.
Let’s see how it goes
Finished up this book over the holidays :: https://seedvc.blog/2016/11/26/next-book-up/
Worth a read. Definitely gave me ideas for other ways to deal with children. Going to try and put those ideas into action for the new year for my 9 year old.
Fascinating insights on how memory is something separate from habits and how the brain deal with them both. I think it reaffirmed for me that habits are good and I need to try and create some better ones for life and work.
Been listening to a few podcasts lately and realizing more and more how much I love stoicism – haven’t found a great book on it yet. Started reading this but not loving the style of it :: Letters from a Stoic (Penguin Classics)
Starting Jan 1 going to give this one a whirl :: The Daily Stoic: 366 Meditations on Wisdom, Perseverance, and the Art of Living
I’ll let you know how things go.
Always amazing to me how Seth can boil huge subjects down to simple steps.
Here he attacks marketing :: http://sethgodin.typepad.com/seths_blog/2016/08/marketing-in-four-steps.html
I love step 4:
The last step is so often overlooked: The part where you show up, regularly, consistently and generously, for years and years, to organize and lead and build confidence in the change you seek to make.
I think this is the one the startup crowd likes to overlook. The patience required in building a real brand and how that takes time and consistency.
Hence – my newest read :: http://www.nokpis.com/2016/08/21/how-brands-grow-books-2/
