Publisher's Summary

When anyone can start a business (when everyone is running their career like a business), it begs a question. This is your one chance at life, you can have anything you want, what is worth doing?

Most people don't know why they're doing what they're doing. They imitate others, go with the flow, and follow paths without making their own.

They spend decades in pursuit of something that someone convinced them they should want, without realizing that it won't make them happy.

Anything You Want is a manifesto about living life, appreciating enough, and doing what matters. It's most of what fabled entrepreneur Derek Sivers learned in ten years of starting and growing a small business, compacted into something you can listen to in an hour and a half. A life worth living starts with knowing your personal philosophy of what makes you happy and what's worth doing.

    Story
    "Trust your instincts"

    This is a great reminder to follow your heart and do what you know is right in business and in life. Derek's story is a success story of following these principles and trusting yourself to do what you know is right and what you want to do versus following what everyone else is doing.

    "Quick and helpful, might just run it back..."

    Some great, honest advice. Forthcoming about his successes and mistakes. Worth the purchase price even though short because you will definitely listen again.
