Billionaire Charlie Munger’s favorite life hack can help anyone be more successful; Here’s what Jeff Bezos says he’s looking for in an Amazon show: “One way you can think about TV is you can say, ‘I want to make something that millions and millions of people are going to watch.’ If that’s your starting point, you paint yourself into a corner and you often end up with homogenized, uninteresting content.

Let’s encourage them to take risks,’ then you’re going to end up with a remarkable story, and remarkable stories always find an audience.” – Bamboo Innovator Daily: 16 Jul (Thurs)
