As far as I can tell, this is the most comprehensive (and actionable) step-by-step synthesis of Naval Ravikant's wisdom available anywhere.
Many people find Naval so interesting because he's seemingly cracked the code to living a full life. As Eric Jorgenson says, "Naval is broadly followed because he is a rare combination of successful and happy."
Most highlights of Naval begin with wealth and end with happiness. However, I'll flip the script here and present Naval like you've never seen him before. We'll start with the meaning of life and then see how everything naturally follows from there—all the way down to making money as a byproduct of who you uniquely are.
You may be asking, "Isn't the new book The Almanack of Naval Ravikant the ultimate synthesis of Naval?" I found it to be a great gateway for those first discovering Naval. If you've read it, this post is your next step. It's intentionally organized in a way to make all of the wisdom more actionable for your own life.
Who are Naval's insights for?
I think it’s good for anybody who wants to be entrepreneurial. Anybody who wants to control their own life. Anybody who wants to deterministically and reliably improve their ability to create wealth over time, is patient, and is looking at the long haul.— Naval Ravikant
