Reinvent Yourself

by James Altucher


Around 2012, a group of students created a video presenting an analysis of the nature and meaning of work according to different generations. Starting with Baby Boomers, then Generation X and Millennials, they showed how the path towards a meaningful, successful career had changed.

James Altucher says the same: There's no guarantee that you'll rise through the ranks nowadays. Even if you earn a great degree, work hard and keep your head down. Instead, you have to choose yourself and carve out your own unique path in a chaotic world.

Reinvent Yourself is Altucher's template for creating that path. He's written multiple bestsellers, started a successful podcast, and launched an investment advisory service to share his knowledge with the world.

Favorite quote

Improving 1% a day is not even noticeable. That's why it's so easy to say, 'Nothing is happening' and inadvertently cost their lives 1% a day. Focus on that 1% improvement, and everything changes.
