Publisher Comments:

Get Shit Done. Less meetings, more doing. Passion never fails.

Startup Vitamins aims to provide doses of vitalizing support to startups to help them throughout their development. Posters are created to provide inspiration, reminding startups of key aspects to success while also offering a constant stream of other inspirational quotes on their blog. Theres rocket-fuelled insight from the pioneers of the Lean revolution, alongside timeless wisdom from Zuckerberg, Bezos and Jobs. For instance:

  • “It takes time, its a grind. There are no shortcuts. Youve got to grind and grind.” – Mark Cuban
  • “Better to be right about the trend and wrong about the implementation, than the other way around.” – Aaron Levie, Box.net
  • “Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do.” – Steve Jobs
  • “Most people are searching for a path to success that is both easy and certain. Most paths are neither.” – Seth Godin
  • “Dont let people tell you your ideas wont work. If youre passionate about an idea thats stuck in your head, find a way to build it so you can prove to yourself that it doesnt work.” – Dennis Crowley, Foursquare

Whenever youre in search of inspiration and motivation, pick up this book. And then Get Shit Done.

Review:

"Referring to his first book, It's Not How Good You Are, It's How Good You Want to Be, Arden describes himself as 'author of world's bestselling book,' ably demonstrating one nugget of wisdom to be found in his latest: 'Great people have great egos; maybe that's what makes them great.' Otherwise, the book suggests that Arden is less a great person (or a great author) than a great former creative director at advertising powerhouse Saatchi and Saatchi. In the restrictive, often repetitive genre of management by aphorism, Arden is an original: master of the snappy maxim and eye-catching graphic, Arden advocates unconventional thinking, skipping college, taking risks, being outrageous and failing dramatically. Missing is a page in this book emblazoned 'Take my advice with a grain of salt,' or 'Triumph for an advertising copywriter may be disaster for an accountant.' Nevertheless, Mr. Arden's books are a pleasure to peruse. His writing is spare, clever, brisk and pointed. Illustrations are clean and witty. Think you whatever, this book is a natty little addition to the business bookshelf." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

Filled with fun anecdotes, quirky photos, and off-the-wall business advice, the provocative sequel to "It's Not How Good You Are, It's How good You Want to Be" reveals the surprising power of bad decisions.
