لطيف. الفكرة الأساسية من الكتاب هي أن العمل الشاق ليس طريقا للنجاح. من باب أن أقصر الطرق للنجاح هي أكثرها فعالية و آكدها ..و أنجحها.

يدور أيضا حول نفس الفكرة في العديد من الكتب عن الإبداع و ما شابه، هي فكرة تحويل العمل المطلوب لمتعة يستلذ بها الشخص، لأن ذلك كفيل بجعل التجربة أفضل و أكثر قابلية للتميز.

Do what you enjoy doing, that will get you into flow. Then you no longer have to work hard because it is not work to you. When you make the final big commitment, and it is a cause good for the world, the world will come round to support you. And because you delight in the process and perhaps, not be so stuck in the search for the final outcome, your eyes maybe opened for the gold mine that are actually the side effects. And yet, to begin with, you have to learn to know yourself in order to know ...more

Gratzon founded an ice cream company and a long distance company that each did millions in revenue, and he claimed to do it without working a day in his life. How did he pull this off?

By following his bliss.

Gratzon argues that life is too short to spend it working, and that if you do what you enjoy, and figure out ways to simplify, joy and success will follow.

He's provided food for thought for me, and this easy to read and enjoyable book will definitely get re-read every so often.

There's more a

This book title "The Lazy Way to Success" seems has failed its purpose to find the shortcut (or lazy way) to its main idea. There were too much rambling ideas and stories and it seems the writer just want to enunciate one method to gain success (you will find it after you read the final chapter). Although the book was a bit disappointment for myself, it found its way to correlate human behavior with the nature and science, which made me pull more of my attention to this book until the closing.

Read only if you want to be a Director or above. Not suitable for middle management. ;-)

Useless information as 95% of people can’t make a sustainable living on their interests.

Buku ini menawarkan perspektif (yang benar-benar) baru tentang kemalasan. Berbeda dari kebanyakan buku motivasi yang (selalu terlihat) berusaha memompa adrenalin pembaca dengan quote-quote motivatif, kisah sukses, kalimat penggedor kelesuan dsb., alih-alih,buku ini justru menganjurkan pembacanya untuk mengikuti rasa malas. Ada konsep yang sering dilupakan orang, bahwasanya segala benda atau kejadian di semesta ini mengikuti kaidah 'daya usaha terkecil' (contohnya: air mengalir ke tempat yang leb ...more
