We all know somebody who’s successful, in great shape, plays in a band, is close with their parents, volunteers at the ASPCA, and has a food blog. Assume you’re not that person.”
–Scott Galloway, “The Algebra of Happiness.”
Want to get a reader’s attention?
Here’s. One. Way.
But, if you overuse such techniques — as Business School Professor and serial entrepreneur Scott Galloway arguably does — it starts to feel gimmicky and repetitive.
I mean, “enough said.”🙂
Guide to Living
My other observation about Galloway’s book is that, while it’s billed as a “how to” manual for a well-lived life, it’s equally a love letter: to his two young sons, his wife, and long-deceased Mother.
To Galloway, it’s not about how much money you make (or lose), the size or zip code of the home(s) you own, or the size of your social media following.
Rather, it’s how many loved ones are at your bedside at the end.
You won’t learn that in business school.
But. You. Should.
