  • Goke shared from Zero to One: Notes on Startups, or How to Build the Future by Peter Thiel, Blake Masters
    The next Bill Gates will not build an operating system. The next Larry Page or Sergey Brin won’t make a search engine. And the next Mark Zuckerberg won’t create a social network. If you are copying these guys, you aren’t learning from them.

  • Goke shared from Meditations (Penguin Great Ideas) by Marcus Aurelius
    Think of your many years of procrastination; how the gods have repeatedly granted you further periods of grace, of which you have taken no advantage. It is time now to realize the nature of the universe to which you belong, and of that controlling Power whose offspring you are; and to understand that your time has a limit set to it.

  • Goke shared from Warrior of the Light by Paulo Coelho
    A Warrior of the Light knows that he has much to be grateful for. Angels help him in his struggle; celestial forces place each thing in its place, thus allowing him to give it his best. His companions say: “He’s so lucky!” And the warrior does sometimes achieve things far beyond his capabilities.
  • Goke shared from The Ten Principles Behind Great Customer Experiences (Financial Times Series) by Matt Watkinson
    ‘Companies have become so dependent on models that many organisations have started to lose touch with reality. Without personal connection to the people they serve, companies lack the context, immediacy, or experience they need to make good decisions. Far too many leaders make critical decisions without any personal feel for the territory.

  • Goke shared from The Lombardi Rules: 26 Lessons from Vince Lombardi--The World's Greatest Coach (The McGraw-Hill Professional Education Series) by Vince Lombardi
    “The difference [between a good coach and an average coach] is knowing what you want, and knowing what the end is supposed to look like. If a coach doesn’t know what the end is supposed to look like, he won’t know it when he sees it.”
    Note: One of the most important things we can do for ourselves is to have a clear unwavering picture of what success looks like.
