Blinkist has done all the hard work for you. They’ve read the books and have made a summary for you with the key pieces of information. There's so much content out there. How can you read it all? You can’t!! But with Blinkist you'll be making the best use of your time.
I read Disrupt Yourself in less than 15 mins and these are some of the key pieces of information I took away.
The engine driving all the innovation is disruption.
But disruption doesn’t have to be limited to companies. You can disrupt yourself and gain the success you’re after.
Everyone has a special strength that can make them stand out.
keep challenging yourself and recognizing when it’s time to start over and try something new.
a lot can be learned from failure, which can then be put toward future success.
Most successful people are actually driven by a restless spirit of curiosity.
So remember, life is full of surprises. Don’t be discouraged if you don’t end up where you thought you would. You might end up doing things you never dreamed of!
You’ve got to be disruptive, both in your professional and in your personal life. Don’t be afraid to challenge received ideas about best practices and savvy strategies. And don’t be afraid to wipe the slate clean and start from scratch! If you’re unsure of what you want to do, figure out what your unique talents are and how they could be used to contribute to society. And remember: don’t forget to learn from your failures and continue to challenge yourself.
Listen to your inner voice.
