Pressestimmen

"Once in a great while a new author bursts on the scene to light a fire under us. Richie Norton is that rare spark. His certainty that the secret to success is to start something stupid is right on and will alter your future. Thirty publishers thought Chicken Soup was stupid before it sold over 100 million copies. This new book could not have come at a better time and Richie's urgent and authentic style is readable, convincing and a compelling blueprint for success. Be smart: read "The Power of Starting Something Stupid.""--Jack Canfield, "New York Times" bestselling author of "The Success Principles, "and cocreator of the Chicken Soup for the Soul(R) series--Jack Canfield

"Perfect book for these uncertain times."--Steve Forbes, Chairman and Editor-in-Chief of Forbes Media

"Richie Norton has written a book about courage. The courage to do work that matters and to do it with your heart and your soul. Go make something happen."--Seth Godin, author of "The Icarus Deception"

"I absolutely love this book. I love how it makes me feel. It energizes me, inspires me, and gives me confidence. It reminds each of us that all things are possible. . . . This book disrupts conventional thinking--in a smart way."-- Stephen M. R. Covey, "New York Times "and the #1 "Wall Street Journal "bestselling author of "The Speed of Trust "and coauthor of the #1 Amazon bestseller "Smart Trust"--Steven M.R. Covey

"This warm, wonderful book will inspire and motivate you to do more in your life than you ever dreamed possible."-- Brian Tracy, author of "The Power of Self-Confidence"

"When I wrote "The E-Myth Revisited, "I wasn't an author and I really wasn't interested in business, but I had discovered something about business that nobody else seemed to see, or understand, and I decided to write a book about it. It came like a gift, a huge aha from out of nowhere, and I ran with it. Today, that 'stupid' idea (everybody told me it wouldn't work!) has created the most successful book on small business ever written because of that one, great stupid idea. I thought I was just lucky. Richie just told me that I'm in really good company. Find out why stupid is now the New Smart. Read it, you'll love it, you'll find out why thinking stupid makes the best sense in the world."--Michael Gerber, the world's #1 small-business guru and author of the bestselling "The E-Myth Revisited"

"More than just a call to action. This book is a demand for it. One chapter in I felt an involuntary impulse to reexamine my life. Later chapters held my hand as inevitable considerations came up from that process. An important, compelling and authentic read."--Joseph Grenny, "New York Times "bestselling coauthor of "Crucial Conversations "and "Change Anything"

"Sometimes a book shines a light on a topic in such a unique way that you find yourself slapping your forehead and saying to yourself, 'Now that's simply brilliant! Why have I never thought of it that way before?' And then you keep reading, and discover more and more 'stupidly brilliant' insights. This book makes you look forward to starting something stupid. That's the genius of it. If success in life is a goal of yours, you'd be smart to read this book ASAP."--Robert G. Allen, author of the "New York Times" bestsellers "Nothing Down, Creating Wealth, Multiple Streams of Income, " and "The One Minute Millionaire"--Robert G. Allen

""The Power of Starting Something Stupid "teaches one of the truths that I have found in life and business: whenever I think something is a totally genius idea, it is not, and when I take a chance to do something that may seem like it will turn into nothing, that's when things turn out to be successful. So many great, successful ideas started as a whim--as something stupid. Because of this, I just keep trying. I just keep putting things out there. I just keep taking chances, even though they scare me."--Gina Bianchini, CEO of Mightybell.com; cofounder of Ning.com--Gina Bianchini

"Richie Norton has taken the fundamental principles of learning, living and thriving and integrated them in a most engaging and practical manner. His message and its relevance to every entrepreneur will be immediately apparent, but it is equally valuable and valid whatever endeavors and dreams you may have and at whatever age you find yourself. As he so compellingly explains, each of us can have a more engaging, rewarding and fulfilling life by applying these principles in pursuit of our most worthy goals. I would recommend this book to young and old alike who want to have each day be an exciting and rewarding adventure."--Dr. Steven C. Wheelwright, president of Brigham Young University-Hawaii; Edsel Bryant Ford Professor of Business Administration, Emeritus at Harvard Business School--Dr. Steven C. Wheelwright

"Richie Norton uncovers the paradox of stupid as the New Smart and shows us how success can be one idea away. Watch out: the energy in "The Power of Starting Something Stupid "is contagious. You may just find yourself starting something stupid and living your dreams."--Andy Andrews, "New York Times "bestselling author of "How Do You Kill 11 Million People?, The Noticer, "and "The Traveler's Gift"

"From the very first chapter, "The Power of Starting Something Stupid "opens your mind to the possibility that you're not living up to your full potential. Richie Norton's powerful words provide the motivation and energy you'll need to start something stupid. Something amazingly, courageously, stupid!"--Andy Beal, coauthor of "Radically Transparent, " CEO of Trackur.com--Andy Beal

"In this era of negativity, less, limitations, and no, "The Power of Starting Something Stupid "offers hope, inspiration, and profound advice for moving toward our own positive futures. Richie Norton has tapped into what is good, positive, and worthwhile in all of us. Richie's perspective should be read and understood by all."--Mary Teagarden, professor of global strategy and editor, Thunderbird International Business Review at Thunderbird School of Global Management

"There's magic to this book: ideas which seem to be stupid often turn out to be brilliant--they only looked stupid because we hadn't seen them before, and it took courage for their creators to stick to their visions and bring them to light. Learning to curate, cultivate, and play with ideas that others don't understand (or are openly critical of!) is a hallmark of great innovators. Richie helps us to realize that fear of looking stupid can stop us from participating fully in life and from finding significant ways to help others. By showing us how this 'stupid to brilliant' pattern is at the heart of continuous innovation and renewal, he encourages us to trust ourselves and to bring our own unique contributions to our homes, our communities, our workplaces, and the world."--Steve Hargadon, founder of Classroom 2.0 and Future of Education--Steve Hargadon

"F. Scott Fitzgerald wrote, 'The test of a first-rate intelligence is the ability to hold two opposing ideas in mind at the same time and still retain the ability to function, ' and understanding the New Smart is starting something stupid. When people like Fred Smith (FedEx), John Bogle (Vanguard), and Richard Branson (Virgin) created businesses that went in the opposite direction of the marketplace, they were once called stupid. All of these people transformed their industries and rose to the top as they focused on seeking the less obvious and taking the road less traveled. Richie takes readers on a journey to explore why starting something stupid may be the smartest thing you can do."--Aaron Bare, Entrepreneur-in-Residence, Thunderbird Global School of Management; Former CEO and Chairman, National Association of Sales Professionals

"Today I have over 120 million YouTube views; it only seems like yesterday when people thought that following my dreams could only be a hobby. Fortunately, as Richie teaches, 'stupid' was the smartest thing I could do."--Devin Graham, content creator for the YouTube channel devinsupertramp

Kurzbeschreibung

"Perfect book for these uncertain times."
—Steve Forbes, Chariman and Editor-in-Chief of Forbes Media

"Richie Norton has written a book about courage. The courage to do work that matters and to do it with your heart and your soul. Go make something happen."
—Seth Godin, author of The Icarus Deception

What if the smartest people in the world understand something that the rest of us don’t? (They do.) What if they know that in order to achieve success, they will sometimes have to do things that others may initially perceive as stupid? The fact of the matter is that the smartest people in the world don’t run from stupid, they lean into it (in a smart way).

In The Power of Starting Something Stupid, Richie Norton redefines stupid as we know it, demonstrating that life-changing ideas are often tragically mislabeled “stupid.” What if the key to success, creativity, and fulfillment in your life lies in the potential of those “stupid” ideas? This deeply inspiring book will teach you

  • How to crush fear, make dreams happen, and live without regret.
  • How to overcome obstacles such as lack of time, lack of education, or lack of money.
  • The 5 actions of the New Smart to achieve authentic success. No more excuses. Learn how to start something stupid—the smartest thing you can do.

Drawing on years of research, including hundreds of face-to-face interviews and some of the world’s greatest success stories past and present, Richie shows you how stupid is the New Smart—the common denominator for success, creativity, and innovation in business and life.

Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Der Satz “Stupid is the New Smart” ist Programm des Buches. Wobei der Autor immer wieder eindrucksvoll zeigt, dass es sich nur auf den ersten Blick und meistens nur von außenstehenden Personen um etwas "dämliches" handelt, was in den Beispielen behandelt wird.
Dämlich ist also nicht gleich dämlich.
Neben den vielen inspirierenden Stories wird im Buch ein durchaus nachvollzieh- und modellierbarer Rahmen für eigene "Dämlichkeiten" skizziert. Das Ganze ist launing geschrieben, macht Sinn und ermutigt zu eigenverantwortlichem Handeln etwas Abseits der Norm. Damit 5 Sterne und eine klare Empfehlung für Selbst- und Querdenker.

HASH(0x9e46dcb4) von 5 Sternen This will be your new favorite book! 7. März 2013
Von Ashley W - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
This is the first book I've ever reviewed and I'm writing because this THE POWER OF STARTING SOMETHING STUPID IS REFRESHING! I read Seth Godin, Dan Pink, Malcolm Gladwell, Covey, Ferriss, and the classic business books and I realize I subconsciously expect a similar feel from each of them. This book took takes it to a new level. The author just nailed it. It's timely and so easily implementable, I can't imagine reading this book and not having breakthroughs.
Here's what I think it is:
1. At the end of the day, business books show you a list of things you need to be doing better. Thats important but this one is so light and freeing based on what I'm already doing. It taps in to the power of following your heart, taking action, really taking action. Read this and all of the sudden you find yourself doing the things you've dreamed of doing for a long time. Richie is incredibly persuasive in reframing what we all know, which is making mistakes and doing "Stupid" things is awesome. He just strips the heaviness out of it. It really feels like it's just an invitation to the party and you've already earned your way in.

It is truly INCREDIBLE to me that this is Richie Norton's first physical published book. He's young and the testimonials by the big guns are enough a reason to buy this book. So thats my review. I highly recommend buying this book and jumping in it immediately!

HASH(0x9e5fdd14) von 5 Sternen Danger: It'll cause you to take action. 5. März 2013
Von Marc Allred - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Be careful when reading this book because, if you're like me, you'll find yourself having to stop in the middle of reading it to implement the great ideas you've just read. There were multiple times where my mind burst open with amazing new short-term and long-term ideas and I HAD to do something about it right then. And that's the whole point of the book. Stop making excuses for not doing the things you love and start doing them - now. So much to love about the book. I encourage you to buy the book and read the whole story.

Richie Norton's book is life changing. It will get you excited to wake up in the morning again, ready to work on your "stupid" project. The chapter on Authenticity is worth the price alone. Be prepared to be inspired, and ready to take on your fears. Get ready to live a good life!

What if the smartest people in the world understand something that the rest of us don't? (They do.) What if they know that in order to achieve success, they will sometimes have to do things that others may initially perceive as stupid?

The fact of the matter is that the smartest people in the world don't run from stupid, they lean into it (in a smart way). In The Power of Starting Something Stupid, Richie Norton redefines stupid as we know it, demonstrating that life-changing ideas are often tragically mislabeled stupid.

What if the key to success, creativity, and fulfillment in your life lies in the potential of those stupid ideas? This deeply inspiring book will teach you:

• How to crush fear, make dreams happen, and live without regret.
• How to overcome obstacles such as lack of time, lack of education, or lack of money.
• The 5 actions of the New Smart to achieve authentic success.

No more excuses. Learn how to start something stupid—the smartest thing you can do. Drawing on years of research, including hundreds of face-to-face interviews and some of the world's greatest success stories past and present, Richie shows you how stupid is the New Smart—the common denominator for success, creativity, and innovation in business and life.

I admit to going into this book with some trepidation. But the book is written in an across-the-kitchen-table style, friendly, personable, and informative. I learned things—such as Walt Disney was once fired for having “no imagination.” And Elvis Presley was told he had “no talent, and go back to truck driving.” Wow. And you know the rest of the story in these two cases.

The author shares stores that are heart-breaking. Stories that are empowering. Stories that simply make you shake your head in amazement. Which makes me wonder now if my son’s stupid idea is really so stupid… Maybe he should give it a try. The worst he could do is fail. The most—is succeed beyond his wildest dreams.

If you have a wild idea that everyone says is stupid—don’t discount it. Go buy THE POWER OF STARTING STUPID and learn how to crush fear, make dreams happen and live without regret.

HASH(0x9e52906c) von 5 Sternen I have a lot of stupid ideas 6. März 2013
Von Pike - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
The books helps inspire in a time when people are afraid to take risks. Don't be fooled. This book isn't only about starting a business. It's much more. A life lesson kind of book. I will definitely open it up at least once a year to rekindle the advice.
