Resources for Success

By Prasoon Raghuwanshi | Thu Jan 25 2018
Have you ever wondered what they keys to success are? We’re always on the lookout for articles to help us define this. Below are four articles that we think will help you become more successful:
  • If success is a catalyst for failure because it leads to the “undisciplined pursuit of more,” then one simple antidote is the disciplined pursuit of less. (Harvard Business Review)
  • The ability to communicate a message, sell an idea, or paint a vision is a critical skill for an entrepreneur who wants to have an impact on the world. And even in the age of emojis, animated GIFs, and Snapchat filters, public speaking is still the most effective way to move, persuade, and inspire. (Better Humans)
  • Charlie Munger (Vice Chairman of Berkshire Hathaway) thinks that the correct path for everybody else is to specialize and get very good at something that society rewards, and then to get very efficient at doing it. But even if you do that, I think you should spend 10 to 20% of your time trying to know all the big ideas in all the other disciplines. (Farnam Street)
  • When you google how to be successful, you often come up with a list that is paradoxical. That’s because most wildly successful people are complex – so complex that many of their defining qualities contradict each other. Rather than an "either/or" set of static characteristics, they're more likely to demonstrate both. This is a key to their success. This article displays several paradoxical characteristics of most successful people. (Business Insider)
