#AskGaryVee – Gary Vaynerchuck

My favorite quotes from the book #AskGaryVee: One Entrepreneur's Take on Leadership, Social Media, and Self-Awareness  by Gary Vaynerchuk which I rated 5/5 on my Goodreads account:

Smart work will never replace hard work. It only suplements it.

Putting your self out of bussiness is a lot more fun than having someone else do it for you.

I put zero weight into anyone’s opinion about me because I know exactly who I am. Can you say the same?

Stop focusing on dumb shit. Don’t be afraid to break things. Don’t be romantic. Don’t take the time to breathe. Don’t aim for perfect. And whatever you do, keep moving. Reread this a few times...

Passion is an unmatched fuel. Add being happy to that and you have a wonderful formula for good health.

Ideas are worthless without the execution; execution is pointless without the ideas.

My kids’ generation may be the last generation that holds university to such high esteem.

If you’re not producing content, you don’t exist.

A lot of new entrepreneurs tell me they’re hustling, and then they’ll ask me if I liked the last episode of Ballers. They’re trying to get a business off the ground and they’ve got time to watch TV? It’s like wanting to lose weight and sneaking away to scarf down a Big Mac. It’s just not going to work. I’m twenty years into my career with two businesses under my belt and the only time I take to watch TV is when the Jets are on. There is so much hustle in my day I don’t even have a second to spare to “hang out” and catch up with the people around me when I’m at work. It may not be ideal for most, but I love it because it allows me to get the things done that I seek to accomplish.

Once people love you, it’s easy to sell them stuff.

Everybody’s got a plan until they get punched in the face. You can strategize and plan all you like, but once you’re on the court, or in the ring, or on the field, you’d better be ready to adjust and improvise.
