Book: Gateless by Sebastian Marshall and Kai Zau
Co-authored by my hero and mentor, Sebastian Marshall.
A guidebook for the modern career. Provides a useful framework of “the Four Currencies” you need to manage to create your own path in this new world – Capacity, Network, Signal, Assets.
If you’re a person who’s always had “a lot of potential” but don’t know what you’re doing with your life, and let it self-sabotage you, this book will be overwhelmingly useful to you.
“Resource Mode” is exactly what I needed.
Like Ikigai, has a lot of “you don’t know you don’t know” concepts such as thresholds regarding introductions, not self-destructing on 98% complete, consolidating wins, etc.
A strange sight to see is when someone who is young and confused about their path is accomplishing a lot of things, but feeling generally miserable because they “don’t know what they’re doing” – and we live in a world where the question of “What are you doing with your life?” is given such undue force and weight. Parents, relatives, acquaintances – heck, people you just met at a party – they get concerned or sympathetic if you don’t have a good answer to the question.
