Notes from books I've read

Notes from the best books, articles, etc that I've come across over the years on the topics of business, strategy, and life.

So Good They Can't Ignore You by Cal Newport

Probably the best career advice book I've ever come across. Instead of "following your passion", get really good at skills that are rare and valuable. This helps you build career capital that you can use as leverage to create the lifestyle you'd like to live.

I Will Teach You To Be Rich by Ramit Sethi

Great book for young adults who are just starting to make decent money for the first time and want to figure out what to do with it, and how to use it wisely. It's a pretty fun read considering the topic, and it gives you 90% of everything you really need to know to make smart financial decisions.

Zero to One by Peter Thiel

Tons of interesting takeaways from Peter Thiel about building businesses that create things that have never existed before, rather than interating on something that already exists. Especially helpful to think through these concepts at the beginnings of new projects.
