What would you be willing to do for the rest of your life...? It's a question most of us consider only hypothetically-opting instead to "do what we have to do" to earn a living. But in the critically acclaimed bestseller "The Monk and the Riddle", entrepreneurial sage Randy Komisar asks us to answer it for real.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
Yet, I think most of the reviews said it all so I am gonna bring some uncommon points from Randy.
What people often miss is the Zen/Buddhist part of the book. Almost all the chapters follows this religious approach to entrepreneurship. Business savvy vs Buddhist thinking. Keep in mind how they to balance each other(read it yourself).
Another point people criticize him about is that when he didn't align his action and philosophy (read it yourself) while he was serving as a leader in Crystal Dynamic. He said that was the only time he really felt dissatisfied in his life even though he was successful. If he felt dissatisfied and unsuccessful, he would assume is the unsuccessful part that contributes to his dissatisfaction. But lucky, he mentioned, he found out that the success didn't contribute to his happiness as much as it should. He didn't like the his role and the gaming business. So is good thing to alert yourself constantly about what you are doing vs what you should be doing.
The lack of substance, vagueness, and jumping around times cause some readers confusion. Randy sees these characteristics as a chance for people to discuss the book in a open-minded perspective.
PS: Randy's quote to me "All the bad, enjoy your journey." Anyone has any idea what that means? I don't really get the first part.
