A book I can read again and again without getting bored…..


It is after reading this book my life got transformed… It was during 2004 I got this book and finished reading it at one go… 

My Situation: My company was in near disaster when 35 out of 40 of my staff resigned in less than 2 weeks..

That was the first time I came across an attrition and I was almost collapsed… I got convinced that my four year entrepreneur journey has come to an end..

It was after reading this book that I got the confidence to fight back… The book taught me how to approach failure… My entire perception about failure changed and I stared looking for opportunity and lessons from every failure…

The book talks about ways of turning setbacks to success and it is conveyed with 27 real life cases..

I keep reading this book when ever I feel demotivated… Till now I would have read this book more than 50 times and I keep gifting this book to entrepreneur friends…

A small snippet about Failure from the book;
Old Definition:A negative, fatal, and final result indicating: 

  • An inability to perform and a lack of success 
  • A falling short because of ineptness, deficiency, or negligence 
  • A bad, bad thing that should be avoided, mourned, and punished. 

New Definition: A short-term unexpected result that reflects a challenge in progress and that provides: 

  • A stepping-stone to success 
  • An opportunity for learning and development 
  • An opportunity for creative change and innovation.

Finally I’ve to thank the author Charles Manz for giving us such a wonderful book.. Your book had huge impact on me SIR!!!

Thank You Once Again SIR!!!

I pre ordered “Creativity, Inc.: Overcoming the Unseen Forces That Stand in the Way of True Inspiration” and got it delivered to my Kindle today!

As per the intro section of the book

Creativity, Inc. is a book for managers who want to lead their employees to new heights, a manual for anyone who strives for originality, and the first-ever all-access trip into the nerve center of Pixar Animation Studios – into the story meetings, the post mortems, and the ‘Braintrust’ sessions where art is born. It is, at heart, a book about how to build and sustain a creative culture – but it is also, as Pixar co-founder and president Ed Catmull writes, ‘an expression of the ideas that I believe make the best in us possible”

I am very thankful to Anand Nataraj for kindling interest in reading business & entrepreneurs biographies! I am loving…
