In surfing and in life in general, it's not about "getting somewhere," it's all about the journey. Fall is almost inevitable, but as long as you are willing to stand back up, the more you fall, the better you become.
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.
