TOP LESSONS FROM THE BOOK ZERO TO ONE BY PETER THEIL WITH BLAKE MASTERS

How to go from zero to one — top lessons from the book by Peter Theil

“Every moment in business happens only once. The next Bill Gates will not build an operating system. The next Larry Page or Sergey Brin won’t make a search engine. And the next Mark Zuckerberg won’t create a social network. If you are copying these guys, you aren’t learning from them.”

“A bad plan is better than no plan”

“Monopoly is the condition for every successful business.”

“The best problems to work on are often the ones nobody even tries to solve.”

“No company has a culture, every company is a culture”

“All happy companies are different: each one earns a monopoly by solving a unique problem. All failed companies are the same: they failed to escape competition.”

“The best entrepreneurs know this: every great business is built around a secret that’s hidden from the outside. A great company is a conspiracy to change the world; when you share your secret, the recipient becomes a fellow conspirator.”

“Customers won’t care about any particular technology unless it solves a particular problem in a superior way. And if you can’t monopolize a unique solution for a small market, you will be stuck with vicious competition”

“The most valuable businesses of coming decades will be built by entrepreneurs who seek to empower people rather than try to make them obsolete.”

“Today’s best practices lead to dead ends; the best paths are new and untried”

“If your product requires advertising or salespeople to sell it, it’s not good enough: technology is primarily about product development, not distribution.”
