“Every moment in business happens only once.”
Are there lessons that can help a startup create something new and become a sustainable business that went from 0 to 1? While it is far simpler to tweak existing models, no billion-dollar business idea can be reinvented. Although searching for your own unique path can feel like hoping for a miracle, every successful organization was created through one of these miracles – why should yours be any different? The author is a billionaire venture capitalist who co-founded Paypal with Elon Musk. He shares his insights on successful startups, such as how to focus on product development versus sales, and how to first follow the competition before turning a unique technological advantage into an uncontested monopoly.
“Every time we create something new, we go from 0 to 1.”
This book, written by the author of Influence, describes a scientific approach to persuasion, known as “pre”-suasion. The general principle is to create “privileged moments” by putting someone into a desired mental state prior to asking for a request, in order to increase the odds of compliance. This may include putting them in the right mood, priming them with certain numbers, or predisposing them to viewing themselves as helpful.
“The basic idea of pre-suasion is that by guiding preliminary attention strategically, it’s possible for a communicator to move recipients into agreement with a message before they experience it.”
Who are serial killers, how do they think, and how are they classified by law enforcement? This book describes the history of serial killers, as well as modern criminologists’ take on them. It describes various categories that law enforcement uses to profile such killers, such as how organized they are in planning a rape and/or murder. It ends with practical advice for dangerous situations. Overall, this book will offer you a glimpse inside the minds of these nefarious killers.
“The serial killers who were followed were portrayed as depraved monsters – freaks of nature – outcasts & drifters whose demented criminal features should have given them away. But not Bundy – he was like so many of us: an attractive college student with typical ambitions who drove a cute Volkswagen bug.”
Why does time fly when we’re having fun but drag when we’re bored? Why does time seem to speed up as we grow older? This book is about the psychology of how we perceive time. Through this book, you will explore ways to control your perception of how time flows and ways to use it more efficiently. By focusing more on the present moment, or on specific details of a great experience, you can increase your brain’s internal clock and make time appear to slow down.
“The slower your brain is at processing sensory information, the faster time seems to run, and vice versa.”
In learning how to quiet interference and determine your beliefs, passions, and attention, you must get out of your own way. Only then can you successfully overcome any obstacle and maximize your potential to the fullest. Planning out goals and having engaging, active conversations allows you to help others find their drive and maximize results, and better communication with your children, friends, or employees.
“The Faith, Fire & Focus inside you is something that is truly amazing, and your ability to release it in yourself and others will not only transform you and those you help; it will transform the world.”
