The books and stories I liked most are about long term thinking and taking a long view. How to be sustainable on all axes. People, profit, planet.
- Andy Grove, High Output Management. I finally read it and it still holds up, what a great book on organisations.
- Let my People go Surfing by Yvon Chouinard the founder of Patagonia, on building a long term company.
- Ray Dalio, Principles. How he build a company.
- Creativity Inc. by Ed Catmull on the founding and lasting of Pixar. How to build a space and place that works for innovation and creativity.
All four books are very honest, discussing mistakes, lessons and luck. How staying close to key principles – and open to others – help to build great companies.
Om’s blog is great, and this is a great interview with Brunello Cucinelli, the king of cashmere on quality and long term thinking

I still love Twitter and make a lot of pictures. I have put some on VSCO
