If I would have to take only one learning from this book I would take this:
In the book Keith mentioned that “If we gave thought how the world is going to react on our songs we wouldn’t have done it..!”
He had a very friendly relationship with Steve Jobs and it was really amazing to get to know his journey with Steve. He mentioned that how Steve got changed in later period of his life and how it had to do with Pixar.
To conclude poking the box doesn’t mean that you have to go out of your ways to do something new, it means wherever you are, do not fear to experiment , and try to change things around you for the good.
I would suggest this book to people who would like to know what is happening inside the mind of person who is about to break a world record by many folds and what is his way of thinking and this is just one example, if you want to know answers to questions like that this book is for you.
He starts the book with the saying that God has given everyone a unique gift, many people realize it and work upon it and create their ways to success while many lead their life without realizing their true potential, Steve asks everybody to realize their true gift.
At Google they believe that anyone who stop learning is old and anyone who is learning is still young, I am happy that I am young and I encourage you to be young.
Meditation is one of the tools which is at our disposal which can help us not to think for a while and just focusing on our breathing pattern is one of the ways to practice meditation easily.
