5 Golden Nuggets Shared:
- Stop spending time stuck in a job you hate. You have the option to design your own life, take advantage of that. Create the job you wish you had!
- Create something amazing in the world and you will never worry about getting paid. When you build things that make an impact and solve problems, money will follow excellence.
- Find the one thing you are good at and outsource the rest. Many people try to focus on too many trades or do it all themselves, resulting in burnout and lack of efficiency. Focus on your genius zone and bring in others to help you in the areas you lack.
- Technology will soon replace jobs no one really wants to do or should be doing. Humans should have jobs that make the world a better place, not to just make a living for themselves. Live should not be lived to just pay bills and die.
- The key to living the life you want is to become valuable to the people you want to be around. Study the industry you want to be in, solve a problem they don’t yet have the solution for, and show your value.
