📚 Book Summary:
This week's book is "The Long Game" by Dorie Clark.
🚀 This is one of my favorite books of 2023. You should read this book when you realize that there is no quick app or trick that will make you successful. You have to play the long game. Playing the long game means understanding where you are in the game and what skill is necessary to deploy at what point.
One of my favorite take away from the book is this:
⭐️ "Best productivity app: A calendar. You want to determine what's most important and then schedule that the soonest in your calendar. Whatever is less important, you schedule further out. Whatever is not important at all, you don't schedule at all. You delegate it; you get rid of it. You say no to it."
✅ Actionable advice:
Schedule your to-dos on your calendar, and they get done. If you have too many to fit into your schedule, this process is not broken—it's your concept of what you think you can get done.🤷
🧠 5 things I’m thinking about (October 6, 2023)
1.Learning about the "Rule of 40" revenue measure.
2.When negotiating, how do you split the pie equally.
3.How do you create a new category and invite your competitors.
4.When to lead, and when to be a team member.
5.The danger of always being ready to start.
Currently reading "Split the Pie" by B.Nalebuff.
See you next Sunday!
