How to Fail at almost Everything but still Win Big by Scott Adams (affiliate link) comes up on Hackers’ News a lot. Finally, I had a chance to read it.
This is a little different kind of book compared to my regular reads about ultra-successful business titans. I had no idea who Scott Adams was until I heard about this book. He created Dilbert comic. He gave very down to earth perspective on how he achieved success in this book.
Basically, he started various ventures throughout his life including restaurants, websites, etc. Eventually, he started getting traction on his Dilbert comics, so that became his number one focus which led to even more success. He developed passion for comics & art as his comic got more popular and earned him financial success.
The main takeaways for me are try try again, you will fail at most things, passion grows as project grows, and you don’t need to create multi-billion dollars company to be successful.
