顺德创新创业公益基金会的邀请,我从他们的第四期资助项目开始试着担任入驻创业团队的导师。期待能把接下来沟通也变成一种自我教育,发现并总结一些我认为属于经典的内容。

本文的清单包含我从20几岁就开始接触的知识资源,涵盖经济学、科技以及各种我认为应该成为常识的知识领域。

阅读能帮我获得“第三只眼睛”,用它们来观察自己,让人生变成一场类似角色扮演战略游戏:打开原本笼罩在黑幕下的更多领地,成就更多可能。

创始人/VC访谈:

VC知识和关系管理:

软件作为一门生意的规律

基础:经济学/写作/说话等

宗教:佛学/基督教/古兰经/犹太教等

床边应该放一些主流宗教的“圣经”,这是我一直想做但未做到的。外文专业的《英美文学》任课老师曾要求我们都泛读一次这些世界宗教的“圣经”读本,它们分别代表不同文明的起源和背后的故事,一直无形或有形地影响着现世人类生活的方方面面。


Reading List for Founders

By accepting invitation as mentor to founders funded by Shunde Innovation & Entreprenreship Fund, I officially started my mentoring from their 4th sessions of startup founders. I am hoping that I can turn my own mentoring as my self-education, discover and summarize things that are worth sharing with these young founders.

Resource list on this post are books, audios and other media that I've been reading and consuming since my 20s. They cover economics, technology and all the common sense I believe an entreprenure must possess.

Reading helps me to obtain the 3rd eye with which I can see through myself. It practically turns my life into a strategic role play game, where the more I know myself, the more black curtain I turned and unfolded, so that I keep seeing a bigger and bigger world.

Software as a business

The foundamentals: economics/writing/speaking

  • The Mises Institute,where you find a rich repo of economics topics as in-class audio (in mp3 format). If you feel daring and want the absolute root knowledge on Austrian Economics, you must read the book Human Action, the bible of Austrian Economics.
  • 制度主义时代/Age of Instionalist Economics,Mr Xue Zhaofeng is among the early mainland Chinese economics scholar and thinker who have been well-versed in Chicago School of Economics, which shares a root with the Austrian Economics.
  • How to make wealth, by Paul Graham, My Chinese translation. This article is by far the most comprehensive account on what is wealth from entreprenure's perspective. It shaped my basic value and believe as an aspiring enterprenure.
  • The Elements of Stye, the ultimate cheatsheet on writing well. Its Chinese version is also available here. But since it's all about English writing, you'd better read and collect English version of this book. It's been toasted as bible of writing skill by generations of straight-A students.
  • How to Make Money Early in Life: My Speech to the FBLA, by Gary North. Best part is on the BECOMING A BUSINESS LEADER section, where you'll find what are 5 basic skills of a business leader.
  • The Road to Serfdom (Chinese version), by F.A.Hayek. You never know what a boy grew up in Communist China became loyal reader of Hayek. You can collect it's English version here, The Road to Serfdom.

On reglisions, Budhism/Christianity/Guran/Biblia Hebraica (Hebrew Bible)

I've been feeling quilty of not knowing enough about major religions in the world, as required by my bacholar degree (English for Science) at SCUT. They are ultimate sources for understanding different cultures and thinking from people around the world. It seems that we are but living in an infinite loops of life if you appreciate the basics of all these works.
