Best Summer Reads 2018

It’s ele­men­tary: “The more that you read, the more things you will know,” Said Dr. Sesuss. “The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.” August and Sep­tem­ber are great months to exhale and do some mind-stretch­ing via a few great books. Here are five 2018 releas­es that I high­ly rec­om­mend.

The New Language of Entrepreneurs

The new matrix frame­work that we are design­ing as both a con­cept and as an assess­ment tool enables peo­ple to find their start­ing point as an entre­pre­neur. It’s no longer a bina­ry mat­ter: that you are or are not an entre­pre­neur. Our new approach makes entre­pre­neur­ship like a lan­guage of moves to be mas­tered and used in dif­fer­ent com­bi­na­tions in dif­fer­ent sit­u­a­tions.

The Death of Time

The real­i­ty is that those who are grow­ing up with Instant Reply tech­nol­o­gy have no rec­ol­lec­tion of any­thing dif­fer­ent. For these, shall we call them “dig­i­tal natives”, the phys­i­cal world is bro­ken sim­ply because it does not move at the speed of their dig­i­tal lives. I see over and over with would-be entre­pre­neurs whose start-up ideas are designed to “fix” some­thing in the phys­i­cal world that is “just too slow”.

To Do Or Not To Do?

I rec­og­nize myself in the bul­let points pre­sent­ed by the author. Often, when I feel that my work and per­son­al life has become a web of per­plex­i­ty, I often think of that sports­wear ad that advis­es, “Just do it.” Only, in my head, I say to myself, “Just do some­thing!” Not doing some­thing seems like a dere­lic­tion of my duty as a human being. Or, as Steven and Diana note when they describe how inac­tion feels, most times, for most peo­ple. “It is nat­ur­al to asso­ciate Not Doing with…”

In Sports, Big Data Is A Big Pain

As some­one who was raised to appre­ci­ate the psy­chol­o­gy of the game of base­ball, any automa­tion of the game hurts. To my mind, big data and ana­lyt­ics mat­ter, yet often a base­ball player’s per­for­mance is affect­ed more by human inputs such as emo­tion. Noth­ing can boost a hitter’s bat­ting aver­age than a home cooked meal or a vis­it from fam­i­ly or friends.

Coming: History’s Longest Unemployment Line?

In no way do I want to dis­count the work­place trau­ma that is here to stay as com­pa­nies of every size invest in new tech­nolo­gies. The work world is going through major change, and peo­ple will be affect­ed. Yet, my opti­mism remains string that oppor­tu­ni­ties will emerge from these sub­stan­tial threats to our liveli­hoods — if we can think clear­ly and oper­ate today with a fore­sense of what is com­ing tomor­row.

An Entrepreneurial Religion?

Ries is, at every turn, mea­sured and ratio­nal in this book. But his over­all style tru­ly suc­ceeds in mak­ing the read­er feel that the heavy weight of the sta­tus quo of big com­pa­nies can be light­ened as those man­ag­ing those com­pa­nies become more enlight­ened. Were the world to believe in entre­pre­neur­ship as deeply as some believe in tra­di­tion­al reli­gions, it’s just pos­si­ble that this new year could change jobs and com­pa­nies, peo­ple and soci­eties, lead­ers and fol­low­ers.
