Summary: Screw It, Let’s Do It! by Richard Branson

Just Do It

It doesn’t matter what’s the challenge is, business or personal, if it’s something you enjoy, just do it. You’ll be glad you did.

Have Fun!

Have fun in what you do and money will follow. Richard wanted to buy Necker in British Virgin Islands but didn’t have money. So he borrowed the money to fund his fun. You won’t make money in the long run if profit is your goal. Make the goal to have fun.

Be Bold

Whatever your dream is, go for it. Always beware if risks are too random or hard to predict, but remember if you opt for a safe life, you’ll never know what it’s like to win.

Challenge yourself

Challenge is the core and mainspring of all human action. If there’s an ocean, we cross it. If there’s a disease, we cure it. If there’s a wrong, we right it. If there’s a record, we break it.

Stand on your own feet

There’s nothing like being your own boss and making decisions on your terms. Make sure you stand on your own two feet, rely on yourself and do all you can to make yourself a better, stronger person.

Live the Moment

Money is important but it’s merely a means to an end, not an end in itself. What’s going on now is just as important as what you’re planning for the future.

Value Family and Friends

We all need a strong support network. Even though you were taught to stand on your won feet, without your loyal family and friends, you would be lost.

Have Respect

Don’t cheat but aim to win.  Never do anything if it means you can’t sleep at night. Your reputation precedes you. And money means nothing if you’re not trusted.

Do Some Good

Corporates are in a unique position to do good and evoke change. Create the change you want to see and care the environment you live in.


President Clinton was going through a tough personal time Mandela said to him:

” They destroyed my marriage. They abused me physically and mentally. They could take everything except my mind and heart. Those things I would have to give away. And I decided not to give him away. Neither should you.”
