It was a second masterpiece written by Derek. Don’t let the word masterpiece deter you since it was written in such an approachable way. To continue with my analogy with Confucianism last time, this book is more like 论语 (Analects of Confucius). So different from Anything you want which is centred around Derek’s entrepreneur journey, this book is organized in different themes. As I read through Derek’s reflections in the book, I can’t help reflecting on my life:
- Am I saying too few noes and thus too few “hell yeah”
- Do I fear about being global
- Am I being future-oriented and neglecting the present
- Am I promoting myself as a tool, not an art
The list goes on and you will probably see some reflections on this blog or newspaper later.
