    I just finished Unscripted tonight.

    Loved it.

    I particularly loved the part on page 369 -

    "Composite the five unions: Beliefs, meaning-and-purpose, a Fastlane productocracy, execution, and discipline. Mix together and the concoction left behind is an empowered "F*ck you" immune to the SCRIPT. No settling. No punching time clocks. no sardine seats on Southwest Airlines."

    That is a classic and is going on the White Board.

    Anybody else have some favorites MJ-isms?

    Never start a business to make money. Stop chasing money and start chasing needs

    [I had edited this for my own sake where the ellipses are, and it came from a thread on this forum]

    I write books that move unseen probabilities with the goal of shifting probabilities to induce better outcomes. Yes luck always plays a role whenever probabilities exist. But as an entrepreneur that buys into the Unscripted philosophy, our objective is different: We aim to move probability. 1 in 7 is better than 1 in 500 or 1 in 1,000,000 or 0 in {anything}…

    1. Hard work gives you 2 chances to call a coin flip.
    2. Average work gets you 1.
    3. Laziness gets you 0.

    For me, one of the best quotes (and one that stays in my mind) is this:

    If you accept conventional wisdom from conventional people living conventional lives, can you expect to be anything but conventional?

    Thank you, Sir. It's a great saying.

    I've a bit of sentimental attachment to it. Years ago, I was working in an awful cold calling job whilst stricken with wanderlust, obsessed with backpacking Australia, a dream of mine since a small child. I came across a beautiful wallpaper with a little boat and a sunset with 'don't quit your day dream' written over it, which I used as the wallpaper for my work computer to motivate me that good things were coming. But it also had a dual affect in that it tapped into my entrepreneurial beliefs. :)
