The Lessons School forgot to teach us

The Lessons School Forgot: How to Hack Your Way Through the Technology Revolution is a book by Steve Sammartino.

I finished the book in one week. At the beginning he says about how he worked in a factory and how the factory made the workers to keep working to have high productivity. It is funny and entertaining to read.
Sammartino argues that we are all entrepreneurs even though we are really employees working for some one or some company. Just a shift in mindset can make a huge difference in our attitude. With that shift in attitude, we can think of our boss as our customer. In a business, we need more customers. So, why you have to be happy with just one boss.? More than one employer is always better, if we think about it.
We can have more side hustles/projects. It may take a long time and effort to make your own passion to generate an income. But, keep working on it, is the key to make it a success.

Schools are really preparing us to obey the rules, like get a degree, find a job, and save some money to retire.
In this book, you can find new ways of thinking to change the attitude of the boring ways of life.
I really loved reading this book.  As a result of it, I am going to start making a list of book s I am reading. According to Sammartino, most book s can be finished in seven or eight hours. At least one book a month is possible for me.
If you are interested in reading the blog of this Australian futurist and technologist, his blog is here.

Now is your turn: share with me what are you reading now.
