2. It Doesn’t Have to Be Crazy at Work
Jason Fried and David Heinemeier Hansson built BaseCamp, a highly-profitable software company, by prioritizing “calm” over “crazy” and reject the prevailing notion that long hours, aggressive hustle, and “whatever it takes” are required to run a successful business today.

3. Dare To Lead
Brene Brown defines a leader as “anyone who takes responsibility for recognizing the potential in people and ideas, and has the courage to develop that potential.”
