Official Blogger LeWeb Paris 2013

LeWeb Official BloggerH.U.G.E. news today: I have been invited to be an Official Blogger at LeWeb Paris 2013!

For many years I have been religiously following the event, which is considered as the most important international conference for startups and web entrepreneurs.

For the past couple years, I have shared in this blog some great presentations from the previous editions in both London and Paris. I even had one of the highlights of my year when I had the great pleasure of having Jeremiah Owyang as our guest for The Digital Loop, just minutes after he just finished his keynote presentation at LeWeb London 2013. And today, it means a lot to me that this time I will have the opportunity to take part in this amazing experience live in Paris.

The speakers’ line up this year is amazing, including outstanding visionaries and thought-leaders such as Guy Kawasaki, Brian Solis, Gary Vaynerchuk, Phil Libin, and many many more, including once again Jeremiah Owyang, as well my good friend (and partner in crime at The Digital Loop) Paul Papadimitriou.

So, if you are planning to attend this year’s event, I am really looking forward to seeing you there!

Time to Press CTRL ALT Delete and Reboot Your Life

Not long ago Mitch Joel, President of Twist Image, published his new book Ctrl Alt Delete: Reboot Your Business. Reboot Your Life. Your Future Depends on It. (Amazon Affiliate Link).

To celebrate the lunch of the book, instead of having the standard book launch party, Mitch invited Seth Godin to join him on stage to have a remarkable conversation about how much business has changed, and what this means for all of us going forward.

This is a fascinating conversation between two amazing thought-leaders. I strongly recommend you to watch the video on its entirety and then go … no … run to buy Mitch’s books.

Enjoy!

Malcom Gladwell on Meaningful Work

Malcolm Gladwell, best-selling author of outstanding books such as Blink: The Power of Thinking Without Thinking, The Tipping Point: How Little Things Can Make a Big Difference and Outliers: The Story of Success (Amazon affiliate links), gives in this video two great examples of hard work that later looked like genius.

Bill Gates got up at 02:00 am to program as a teenager, while The Beatles played together 1200 times, far more than most bands, before they ever got famous.

The point is: Success is the result of putting your heart and mind into something to create successful, meaningful work.

Enjoy!

‘That won’t work’ is the worst thing you can ever say. ‘That didn’t work’ is cool, but ‘that won’t work’ is not a way to go through life.

How to break habits

OK … this is it … no more excuses… And you know what? … It’s Charles Duhigg’s fault. Because in his outstanding book The Power of Habit: Why We Do What We Do in Life and Business (Amazon affiliate link), he demonstrates that the key to exercising regularly, losing weight, becoming more productive, raising exceptional children, and achieving success is understanding how habits work.

But that’s not all! The book also explores how by harnessing recent scientific discoveries that explain why habits exist and how they can be changed, we can transform our businesses, our communities, and our lives.

Here is a brief introduction to some of his other findings. Fascinating stuff!

So … I strongly recommend you to get this book. I have been reading it for the past couple days and I simply cannot put it down. Interesting, provocative, but most important, full of extremely valuable advice.
