So Good They Can’t Ignore You: Week 2 Roundup/Week 3

Finally finished the Jordan book- it was fantastic.  At the end of the day, I can’t say I want to be exactly like Michael Jordan, but here were the main things I want to adopt:

Focus:  The man broke a large task into chunks, and then just focused on doing that chunk to the best of his abilities.  That translates to essentially taking it one day at a time, and making sure you did your best on that day.

Passion:  He loved what he did.  You can’t burn out on doing what you love.  I love reminding myself of that.  It helps me work harder.

Hard Work:  He was the best because he outworked everyone, plain and simple.  There’s no substitute for hard work, and if anyone tells us otherwise, they’re full of it.

Passion+Hard Work= Greatness.

Week 3 Reading List:

Founders at Work- Stories of Startups Early Days by Jessica Livingston

I’ve heard its a good read- kind of an entrepreneur essential.

Learn Python the Hard Way by Zed Shaw (Week 1)

I have decided that I need to learn how to program in Python because that’s what the NextDrop code base is and I need to be able to understand it.  So I also bought the Udemy course on it and intend to follow it and learn Python.
