Hey everyone! I ve been away for a while because I got sick with a virus, but I am recovering now after two weeks. A lot has been happening lately, but I have still been reading, as always. Today, I want to share with you my thoughts on one of the most impactful books I have come across: 'The Almanack of Naval Ravikant,' compiled by Eric Jorgenson.

🚀 The Book In 3 Sentences

  • Compilation of thoughts from a person who had a big journey from being a poor kid in India to becoming an angel investor, philosopher, and successful entrepreneur.
  • Practical principles and strategies for achieving financial success and personal fulfillment.
  • One of the most non-standard views on hustle culture, success, and other concepts in the modern world.

🎨 Impressions & How I Discovered It

I first discovered Naval Ravikant through Joe Rogan's podcast, and I find it so insightful and full of great ideas that I re-watch it every few months. When I came across "The Almanack of Naval Ravikant," I saw it as an opportunity to delve deeper into his unique perspective and mindset. What sets this book apart for me is that it doesn't fit into the typical business or motivational genre. It doesnt encourage a relentless pursuit of wealth at the expense of everything else. Instead, it offers a broader definition of wealth that goes beyond material possessions, and I appreciate that. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book because it provides practical tips and thought-provoking ideas, which is exactly what I seek in a book.

Here is this legendary podcast:

Who Should Read It?

I believe anyone who reads this book can benefit from it because ideas are quite unique and it is a rare occasion to hear such things from tech guys and investors. I would encourage  14-60-year-old people to take a look and read the first 20-30 pages of this book to understand how easy it is to read and how deep are concepts brought to you by Naval Ravikant are, an awesome compilation.

✍️ My Top 3 Quotes

“A rational person can find peace by cultivating indifference to things outside their control”
“Reading is the ultimate meta-skill that can be traded for anything else”
“Wealth is a very positive sum game. We create things together. We’re starting this endeavor to create this piece of art that explains what we’re doing. At the end of it, something brand new will be created. It’s a positive sum game. Status is a very old game Status, on the other hand, is a zero-sum game. It’s a very old game. We’ve been playing it since monkey tribes. It’s hierarchical. Who’s number one? Who’s number two? Who’s number three? And for number three to move to number two, number two has to move out of that slot. So, status is a zero-sum game”
