I just love the way ideas have been presented using pics/diagrams. They look real. They look alive.
# You are a sum of what (a) you choose to let into your life (b) what you love - GIGO....# Steal from films, music, books, paintings, photos, poems, dreams, conversations, anything that inspires or fuels your imagination ....# Your role models are like friendly ghosts who can't refuse you as an apprentice.....# A laptop is a good editing tool and not for ideation. Paper, pens, sticky notes - are ideation tools . So have two desktops - Analog and Digital.... # Quit picking fights and start making stuff that you want to to see done (businesses/books/music/products) - because it's in the act of making things that we figure out who we are..# Have side projects for play, you never know where they will lead you .. AND Keep Your Day Job # Do good work and share with people..# Marry well,keep a logbook, keep calendar, stay out of debt, take care of yourself, be nice, leave home,etc,etc ...This in brief is what Austin has written. Then, shouldn't this book be a blog ? Well, as my management professor Anand taught, Management Best-sellers are written for idiots who hate to read.
This book led me to another writer - Hugh Macleod. Check out his " Ignore Everybody" manifesto available on the net. To illustrate what he preaches - Austin has reworked few ideas from the manifesto ! For me, this book resolved a conundrum that has bugged me for long - Was Bill Gates correct in ripping off Steve Job's Macintosh ?
