About the book

image4.5/5.0

Getting rich is not just about luck; happiness is not just a trait we are born with. These aspirations may seem out of reach, but building wealth and being happy are skills we can learn. So what are these skills, and how do we learn them? What are the principles that should guide our efforts? What does progress really look like? Naval Ravikant is an entrepreneur, philosopher, and investor who has captivated the world with his principles for building wealth and creating long-term happiness. The Almanack of Naval Ravikant is a collection of Naval's wisdom and experience from the last ten years, shared as a curation of his most insightful interviews and poignant reflections. This isn't a how-to book, or a step-by-step gimmick. Instead, through Naval's own words, you will learn how to walk your own unique path toward a happier, wealthier life.

A book that changes the way you see the world. A ton of interwoven ideas across happiness, success, kindness, creativity, wealth, impact, productivity, doing what you love, where the world is going, philosophy etc etc. All summed up in super succinct, clear nuggets, that had me pausing to write them down. Wish I had read this 10 years ago, and will be recommending to just about everyone. Few favorite quotes ☘️ + “Sharks eat well, but live a life surrounded by other sharks” + “It’s always when you’re bored you have breakthrough ideas. Make sure you make time for being bored” + “Praise specifically, criticize generally” + “Lean in to choices with short term pain, and long term gain. It will always be the better choice” + “Happiness is a state where nothing is missing. You mind stops regretting the past or planning the future and is just in the moment” + “You can tell the type of chimp a chimp is from the 5 chimps he hangs out with. The same can be applied to humans: choose your friends wisely” + “You have 3 options: change it, agree with it, accept it. If you choose to change it, it will make you unhappy while you do so. Pick these things carefully”

Definitely worth reading. His views of life makes you (me at least) stop and think. I like the mix of business and philosophy.

The thought that such a mind exists, and we can know about it, learn from it, grow from it: absolutely brilliant. Important takeaways (for me, for now) 1. Happiness is the missing of Desires. 2. Money can only solve money problems. 3. The thing/person that you think will make you happy/complete will lose its mojo once you achieve it and then you are in the race for another again. 4. Health is key. Physical, mental, spiritual. 5. Anger may or may not serve others, but definitely disserves you. 6. Read, read, read. "Reading (learning) is the ultimate meta-skill and can be traded for anything else." Also reread. A 100 reread books is better than a 1000 "just read" ones. 7. Focus on one - then nurture & perfect. 8. The journey from "Freedom to" to "freedom from".

Really enjoyed this book filled with small pieces of advice from Naval! This book made me start a workout every day routine based on Naval saying it’s the single best habit he taught himself - easier said than done but I’m trying! Overall really enjoyed it. Would have liked more storytelling (biography style) and less of just advice on advice but otherwise really good! This feels like one of those books worthwhile reading again in a year or two!

“The smartest and most successful people I know started out as losers. If you view yourself as a loser, as someone who is cast out by society and has no role in normal society the you will do your own thing and you’re much more likely to find a winning path”

This is an interesting and surprising perspective that I’ve never heard before: “I think business networking is a complete waste of time and I know there’s people in companies popularizing this concept because it serves them and their business model well, but the reality is if you’re building something interesting you’ll always have more people who will want to know you. Be a maker who makes something interesting people want, show your craft, preach your craft and the right people will eventually find you”
