Everything is my fault
Derek Sivers gives some food for thoughts in his article Everything is my fault. He starts his article with talking about his book “Anything you want” – which is by the way great and absolutely worth reading. It´s kind of a “quickread” and filled with impressive stories and Derek´s views of life.
This article is definitely a great start for this week!
I wanna share Derek Sivers recent – super inspiring – blog article about “Loving what I used to hate“.
His introduction points out the whole message; so this is gonna be short:
From now on, when I say I hate something, remind me to add “… today” to the sentence.
Leadership Lessons from Dancing Guy
In 2010 at a TED Conference Derek Sivers showed a 3 minutes clip about a guy dancing at a festival. The clip is not only entertaining to watch – it shows how movements get started!

What do you hate NOT doing?
In his article Derek Sivers shares a great thought which I want to spread as well. Derek thinks about why we´re asking ourselves “What makes us happy?” over and over again? He points out that emotion-based answers often conflict with our expectations – and to be honest, he is right.
“I´m a musician, but I love working alone. Does that mean I should be a producer instead of a performer?”
Instead, we should ask ourselves: “What do you hate NOT doing?”
Derek Sivers made an article about The co-op business model: share whatever you´ve got.
He points the co-op/ sharing model out like this:
1. You already have something that people want.
It might be something you own, something you’ve learned how to do, or access to valuable resources, space, or people.
