Captivating, Interesting and Brilliance of mega proportions.
This is a great story about a former drug dealer who has become a multimillionaire and is married to one of the most beautiful,talented, megastar, and wealthiest women in the world - Beyouce. I really appreciated learning from the authors perspective on Jay-Z and his business and marketing acumen. Jay-Z is a marketing genius and I really appreciate that he did not participate in giving away free information for this book because he would not benefit from it financially. Makes sense. Now my question is how do I apply the principals that made Jay-Z millions? I respect Jay-Z and rap so much more because it has become mainstream. It is not a black thing, a white thing, or a purple thing is is a young thing with International flavor. A nice read, opps, I mean a really nice listen.
Yes I would recommend this audio book to a friend because it makes good sense. What you do in the next 10 minutes will create what happens in the next 10 hours, 10 mouths and 10 years.
I have not listed to other books by Suzy Welch before.
This is a self-help audio book to help get your life together. Basically, if you looking at and doing certain tasks in the short term - this book can help you create the intermediate and long term design of your life.
I really like the book because I had a similar idea when I was running and training for marathons back in the day. Overall I have run 7 marathons the most recent was about 10 years ago. I use the Galloway methodology of run/walking for a set period of time. For me and my pace group I ran for 7 minutes and walked for a set period of time - which was usually 1 minute. Run 7, walk 1. Run for 7 minutes and walk for 1 minute over and over again until you have completed one mile, two miles - 26.2 miles.
What I discovered was that I did not focus on the 26.2 miles ahead of me at the start of a training session or an actual marathon. I focused on the next 7 minuets until my walk break. When my walk break was done after a minute or so I only focused on the next 7 minutes of running at a steady strong pace.
What I discovered is that if you do something for 7 minutes with small breaks over a long period of time, you can accomplish pretty much anything. Hello, like running a marathon!
Let me be clear, I am not a marathoner. I do not have a learn body mass, like the Ethiopians or the Kenyans. I am athletic but not like your typical marathoners body which is usually really learn with not much stomach fat. I got fat. Lots of fat around the mid section.
So how do you accomplish something that you normally could not accomplish? You break it down into smaller parts. What I did while training and running marathons was I kept my body hydrated and nourished during the walk breaks and I only looked forward to the next 7 minutes. After my running days were over and I went back to walking due to a knee injury and subsequent surgery I suffered in my senior as a JMU as an outside linebacker.
I started reflecting and thinking about how to get things accomplished. I thought why not use the methodology that I used when I was running marathons to everyday life things. So that is how I got things accomplished and came up with the ideal literally 7-7-7.
Seven minutes of running lead to 7 days of training, lead to 7 months, 7 years and 7 marathons.
