Screw it…Let’s Do It…..Richard Branson

Richard Branson’s life story is so adventurous that I can’t miss reading his books…This book is the jist of what his autobiography tells…and as a key notes, some of his quotations on what he believes in. A wonderful short book that can be carried for instant boostup. I just loved it. I’m also reading his autobiography…Losing My Virginity…..

Some Excerpts worth mentioning:

“You don’t have to go to art school to be a fashion designer. Join the fashion company and push a broom”

“Hard work and fun is what life is all about. As soon as something stops being fun, I think it’s time to move on. Life to too short to be unhappy. Waking up stressed and miserable is not a good way to live.”

“If you opt for a safe life, you will never know what it’s like to win.”

“Challenge is the core and mainspring of all human action. If there’s disease, we cure it. If there’s an ocean, we cross it. If there’s a wrong, we right it. If there’s a record, we break it. If there’s a mountain, we climb it….we have to continue to challenge ourselves….James Ullman”

“My grandmother lived life to the full. At the age of 89 she became the oldest person in Britain to pass the advanced Latin American Ballroom dancing exam. She was ninety when she became the oldest person to hit a hole on one at golf. She never stopped learning. In her mid-90’s she read Stephen Hawking’s book: A Brief History of Time, which may make her one of the few people to have read it all the way through. Shortly after her death at the age of 99 she went on a cruise around the behind in Jamaica wearing only her swimming costume. Her attitude was that you’ve only got one go in life, so you should get the most of it.”
