I just read this book by Richard Branson: “Screw it let’s do it”. First off, this is a great book and I would recommend it to everyone who wants to improve their life 😉
The book contains a lot of lessons from Richard Bransons life. It’s a bit an autobiography. Richard Branson, the famous billionaire, tells about his adventures from when he was a student and started Student magazine to where he got the idea of his company Virgin Airlines. The theme
Screw it let’s do it
comes back every time. When Richard has an idea, he just goes with it and tries it out. He also does this when he is asked to fly a hot-air balloon across the Atlantic. He can’t resist and accepts the challenge, he always wants to try something new. This is a great lesson to take from this book, if you’ve got an idea, just try it!
So this book consists of stories from Richard Bransons life, it’s pretty autobiographical.
Richard is a famous billionaire born in England. He is the founder of Virgin, a group which has A LOT of companies under them. (Check them all out here, it’s really a lot 😛 ) The most famous company is probably their airline Virgin. Richard Branson’s first real big company was a record label called Virgin Records, which really took off after they signed Mike Oldfield. Some time later when the record label went great, Richard had the idea of starting an airline after being stuck on an island. He took immediate action and managed to buy a Boeing 747 and Virgin Atlantic was born. The full story, which is very interesting and funny, can be read in the book.
So Richard Branson is a really inspiring entrepreneur who has a lot of experience, and a lot to share. These great adventures are shared in his book!
Until this point I haven’t read a lot of biographies of some of the greats in this world. The book ‘Screw It Let’s Do It’ is one of my first, and I loved it! The book is pretty short but packed with things to learn. This is what I eventually love about the book, that there are so many lessons you can implement and improve in your life. A big lesson to learn in this book is that you need to have fun at all times. Richard Branson tells that fun should be the most important thing in your life. If you don’t have fun, you should do something else. This can be with your hobbies or your work/business. If the work is not fun, just quit and do something that brings more joy in your life! The same is with business, only do something that is a lot of fun for you, don’t do it for the money.
Some other big lessons you can learn from this book:
Lessons that could change your life when implemented! I would really recommend it because it’s both entertaining and informative. Too bad that the book is so short…
