Quotes

We all step in shit from time to time. We hit roadblocks, we fuck up, we get fucked, we get sick, we don’t get what we want, we cross thousands of “could have done better”s and “wish that wouldn’t have happened”s in life. Stepping in shit is inevitable, so let’s either see it as good luck, or figure out how to do it less
often.

Catching greenlights is about skill: intent, context, consideration, endurance, anticipation, resilience, speed, and discipline. We can catch more greenlights by simply identifying where the red lights are in our
life, and then change course to hit fewer of them. We can also earn greenlights, engineer and design for them. We can create more and schedule them in our future—a path of least resistance—through force of will, hard work, and the choices we make. We can be responsible for greenlights.

👍Worth reading

It's basically an autobiography with different thoughts, life lessons, stuff like that, which is especially interesting to listen in the audiobook version because Matthew reads it himself. Quite an authentic and generally good book.

The concept of greenlights is also quite notable, but wouldn't say it teaches us how to find such events in our life, or what to do - there are just an events in Matthew's life and the statement of "greenlight!" after it.. Wouldn't say I learned much, but it was simply interesting to hear the life stories from Matthew, and make several conclusions from them for myself.
