“A few years ago, I decided to explore the outer limits of information overload; I decided to read the Encyclopedia Britannica from cover to cover. It was a strange and fascinating 18-month experience. Yes, painful at times, especially for those around me. Yes, I’ve forgotten most of what I read. But still, I loved my 33,000-page experiment in extreme learning.

Here I present some of my favorite business lessons from all of history:

1) Engage in strategic chutzpah
2) Take ideas from far outside your field
3) Keep presentations short
4) Embrace rejection
5) Being first Is overrated
6) Adapt or die”
