This book is based on the author’s childhood observations, his work life experiences and his insights as a self employed and independent working professional. The story telling method profusely laced with wit and quotes has been used to convey lessons from uncommon thoughts. For example, the author talks about focusing on strengths while conventionally we spot weaknesses and put lot of efforts on correcting it. In trying to do what others are doing we miss out on our passion. At the end of our school and college years, we have lost our strengths because we had no time to cultivate them, and our weaknesses remained as before because we had no passion for those subjects. The message to youngsters from all streams of life is that they must develop core skills of learning, thinking, striving, relating and listening. We need to challenge the assumptions and change ourselves, for if we go on doing things as before, we will remain where we were.
The author realises from his life experiences that we are wrong in most of our preconceived thoughts and feelings judging people by their name, dress, appearance, and so forth. Failing is inherent when you work and experiment, and sometimes may get conned, or lose in the stock market, but every failure has to be seen as a way of learning and moving forward. ‘This too shall pass’ is something we must not forget in both our good and bad times.
The author is a big advocate of entrepreneurship and wealth creation sharing examples of entrepreneurial drivers to motivate people more qualified and experienced to take up an entrepreneurial career. The book contains many lessons for all like refiring yourself than considering early retirement, doing things than sermonising, refraining from blaming others, trusting people, replication and growth of business through standardisation, systems and processes, like the success of McDonalds and the Toyotas, and continual learning, for knowledge never goes waste.
