Description

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.

Absolutely genius!!

Derek is one of the very very few humans I know that has dared to explore is own individual way of doing business and things in general. The book is filled with vulnerability, honestly and humanity. Best ten euros spent in a while.

Short and poignant

Authentic, straight shooting look at one guys success story. He makes a point of prefacing his life and business experience with "here's what worked for me". The message I pulled from the book is, there probably is no magic bullet that if followed will make you successful. It's probably a good idea NOT to search for someone else's success and duplicate it, but rather create your own story keeping in mind that it is about your passion and desire to create something....not built around the desire to be wealthy. That part will come, after you follow your dream. His candid look at how he failed as well as how he succeeded made the story realistic and believable. I enjoyed his narration and didn't stop listening until the end.

Inspiring and enjoyable read!

Derek has a real knack for storytelling and a unique perspective. I've always enjoyed his blog, but spending an hour and a half with his writing gave me a much better feel for his approach and mojo and vibe. I really enjoyed it, particularly having it also be in his voice.

I particularly liked his take on trust. I've spent a lot of time thinking through issues like he bring up with his employees, although mostly I think about co-founders. But it's a similar thing. I really want to trust people as much as I can, I think it's empowering and leads to a great vibe. But you do also have to look out for yourself, because there are people out there who will just burn you.

The headlines says it all, the book is too good and to the point that you will want to re-listen to it.

Entertaining and well presented! A great read!

I loved this book and how it was presented. There was some great information and Derek makes it very clear how things worked or didn't. His honest approach but also entertaining approach made me want to read it again. This is one of those authors who I would follow and by every book he comes out with. I put him up in the SETH GODIN level and think he has alot to offer. Again, a fantastic read, very clear and easy to listen to. And I had a great laugh as well. He's pretty funny.

Awsome, succinct - well worth it.

Heaps of takeaways, in an honest and humble performance.

A bit of an odd business success story, but a great listen nevertheless!

THE BEST GUIDE TO ENTREPRENEURS

This is the best guide to being an entrepreneur that I've ever read. Loaded with great tales of mistakes made and always in the context of the over-riding vision of serving the customer.... and remembering that you are doing whatever in order to be happy. Great, short book.

Amazing!!

Derek, unlike so many people we’ll come across in our lives, gets it!! He has learned how to live a happy, productive life after huge success but not isolate himself from reality or the average person. I think he’s brilliant in so many ways & has risen to the top of my list (a list of 1), whom I’d love to meet & sit with some day in the very near future. Again, he’s brilliant beyond words in so many ways & simply understands life & what happiness requires even when he could have suffocated himself in indulging in life’s material rewards. He’s decision to live his life the way he has after the sale CD Baby, is a testament of his core belief & values. Thanks for being you Derek!!

Beautifully idealistic - A perfect break

In the past time I have been reading a lot of Management books about self-improvement, achieving more and so on. I can’t express how happy I am to have listened to this beautifully performed audio book. It gave me the exact right break to put my other experiences into perspective and making sure that my focus lies on the right point - my personal happiness in a moment.

Love this audiobook

It’s probably the first time I was listening to an audiobook from beginning until the end without a break. As an entrepreneur myself I can’t agree more with the author. A few quotes from the audiobook to remember: Do only what makes you happy and don’t focus on the money. Success comes from persistently improving and inventing. If you are not saying “hell yeah” then say “no”. Ideas are worth nothing unless executed. These 2 hours are a good investment of time if you are an entrepreneur or planning to be one.

Read this before any other business book

This is one of the few books that I listened to at a non-accelerated pace. I found it very refreshing to find someone opposing the much treaded profit-maximizing wannabe billionaire path. I would summarize this book as find what makes you and your customers happiest and stick with it.
