Published on

A great book by the GREAT Richard Branson - Screw It, Let's Do It : Lessons in Life. I have summarized the key points for you with the hope that you can learn and apply his principles of success. Even though you may not achieve success as great as Richard Branson, I am sure you will become a better person, achieve your goals and fulfill your dreams.

If I have generated your interest to learn more from Richard Branson, read his book.

Transcript of "Screw It, Let's do it - Lessons in life"

  1. 1. Learn the Secrets of a Global Icon Wong Yew Yip yewyip@gmail.com Extracts from the book summarized by :
  2. 2. “ All the things in this book are my lessons and my goals in life, the things I believe in. But, they are not unique to me. Everyone needs to keep learning. Everyone needs goals. Each and every one of my lessons can be applied to all of us. Whatever we want to be, whatever we want to do, we can do it. Go ahead, take that first step - just do it. “ ~ Richard Branson
  3. 3. Screw It, Let’s Do It Just Do It! 1 Have Fun! 2 Be Bold 3 Challenge Yourself 4 Stand On Your Own Feet 5 Live The Moment 6 Value Family And Friends 7 Have Respect 8 Do Some Good 9
  4. 4. Just Do It1 The Staff at Virgin have a name for me. It is “Dr. Yes”. They call me this because I won’t say no. I find more reasons to do things than not to do them. My motto really is : “Screw it let’s do it!”. If something is what you really want to do, just do it. Whatever your goal is, you will never succeed unless you let go of your fears and fly.
  5. 5. How to: Just Do It1  Believe it can be done  Have goals  Live life to full  Never give up  Prepare well  Have faith in yourself  Help each other
  6. 6. Have Fun2 I always tell them the same thing. I have no secret. There are no rules to follow in business. I just work hard and, as I always have done, believe I can do it. Most of all, I try to have fun.
  7. 7. 2 How to: Have Fun  Have fun, work hard and money will come  Don’t waste time - grab your chances  Have a positive outlook on life  When it ‘s not fun, move on
  8. 8. Some you win and some you lose. Be glad when you win. Don’t have regrets when you lose. Never look back. You can’t change the past. I try to learn from it. Whatever your dream is, go for it. Always beware if the risks are too random or too hard to predict, but remember, if you opt for a safe life, you will never know what it’s like to win. 3 Be Bold
  9. 9. 3 How to: Be Bold  Calculate the risks and take them  Believe in yourself  Chase your dreams and goals  Have no regrets  Be bold  Keep your word
  10. 10. 4 Challenge Yourself Everyone needs something to aim for. You can call it a challenge, or you can call it a goal. It is what makes us human. It was challenges that took us from being a caveman to reaching for the stars. If you challenge yourself, you will grow. Your life will change. Your outlook will be positive. It’s not always easy to reach your goal but that’s no reason to stop. Never say die. Say to yourself “I can do it. I keep on trying until I win”
  11. 11. 4 How to: Challenge Yourself  Aim high  Try new things  Always try  Challenge yourself
  12. 12. If you want milk, don’t sit on a stool in the middle of the field in the hope that the cow will back up you. I believe in myself. I believe in the hands that work, in the brains that think, and in the hearts that love. 5 Stand On Your Own Feet
  13. 13.  Rely on yourself  Chase your dreams but live in the real world  Work together 5 How to: Stand On Your Own Feet
  14. 14. 6 Live the Moment I know that goals are important. Money is important. But the bottom line is money is just a means to an end, not an end in itself. And, what is going on now is just as important as what you’re planning for the future. So, even though my diary is full for months ahead, I have learned to live for the moment.
  15. 15. 6 How to: Live the Moment  Love life and live it to the full  Enjoy the moment  Reflect on your life  Make every second count  Don’t have regrets
  16. 16. 7 Value Family and Friends If anyone asks me what I believe in above all else, I would say my family. I firmly believe in the family. I know that sometimes they split up, and I have been through some of that myself. And I know that some people don’t have anyone. But close friends can be like a family. We all need a strong support network. Even though I was taught to stand on my own feet, without my family and friends I would be lost.
  17. 17. 7 How to: Value Family and Friends  Put the family and team first  Be loyal  Face problems head on  Money is for making things happen  Pick the right people and reward talent
  18. 18. 8 Have Respect I make it a priority not to break the law and I check all the time that I’m not. Your reputation is everything. Be fair in all your dealings. Don’t cheat - but aim to win. My motto is, “Never do anything if it means you can’t sleep at night”. It’s a good rule to follow.
  19. 19. 8 How to: Have Respect  Be polite and respectful  Do the right thing  Keep your good name  Be fair in all your dealings
  20. 20. 9 Do Some Good I was brought up to think we could all change the world. I believed it was our duty to help others and to do good when we could.
  21. 21.  Change the world, even if in a small way  Make a difference and help others  Do no harm  Always think what you can do to help 9 How to: Do Some Good
  22. 22. I have always lived my life by thriving on chances and adventure. The motive that drives me has always been to set myself challenges and try to achieve them. Every lesson I have learned has been a direct result of these tests. They include:  Just do it  Think yes, not no  Challenge yourself  Have goals  Have fun  Make a difference  Stand on your own feet  Be loyal  Live life to the full EPILOGUE
