An amazing memoir by Nike's co-founder, Shoe Dog chronicles Phil Knight's journey from a college grad doing soul searching to founding a company with a team of extremely talented misfits like him. Phil narrated his stories so well that I felt I'm reliving the moments with him. My top takeaways from this book: 1. Do what you believe in; 2. 2. Grow and compete with yourself; 3. Be fearless and fail fast; 4.It's more than business.
In the joy of achievement, I reflected on this satisfying experience, and realized it has taught me three things that I should write down to remind myself when I face pressure and fear in the future: 1. Outside pressure will push you harder than you would to yourself. 2. Fear indeed is a figment of imagination. 3. Confidence accumulates, so cherish small progress.
