Peter Sims tells us they’re a LOT wiser than bet-it-all-and-pray big bets.
He shows us the wisdom of the little bets approach via fascinating stories highlighting the extraordinary success of everyone from Chris Rock mastering a performance to Pixar creating their ingenious films.
Did you know that when he’s creating a new show Chris Rock will perform in tiny clubs while taking notes as he experiments with what sticks and what sucks?
And how about Pixar. Did you know they lost tens of millions of dollars as a hardware business then a software business then a digital animated TV ad company before evolving into a full-length feature animation company?
Yep. All via little bets.
The book is a fun, impactful, quick-read. If you’re looking to install more innovation into your business (and/or life), I think you’ll dig it. (Get a copy .)
Although not a self-help book per se, it’s packed with Big Ideas we can apply to our personal lives and I’m excited to share some of my favorites so let’s jump straight in!
