Here are the key messages from “Delivering Happiness” by Tony Hsieh, the multimillionaire CEO of Zappos.
It is important to discover the one thing you are passionate about, and conversely, what you don’t want to do
The central theme of the book is literally delivering happiness as a business by living a life of passion and purpose.
Delivering Happiness details the story of Tony Hsieh and his company Zappos, an example of how thinking long term and following your passions first can lead to not just profits, but a happy life for you, your employees, and customers.
The book provides an alternative approach to corporate culture that focuses on the simple concept of making people around you happy, and by doing so, increasing your own happiness.
In life and in business, you will win some and lose some, but what is truly important is finding out the one thing you are passionate about.
