The Monk and the Riddle by Randy Komisar - GiveLiveExploreHow would you drop an egg three feet without breaking it? From the beginning, The Monk and the Riddle got me thinking. In fact, it pulled me toward thinking, which I was not prepared to do. Rather, he draws from personal experience to present questions that all entrepreneurs must answer truthfully before and during a business development phase in order to be successful. Komisar presents his insights by giving advice to an internet entrepreneur wanna-be, Lenny.

The Monk and the Riddle: The Education of a Silicon Valley Entrepreneur
The story opens with the author on a motorcycle journey through Miramar, where he meets a monk who poses a riddle:. The author answers the riddle using the anecdote of an overzealous, aspiring entrepreneur trying to quickly launch and sell a tech startup. Through this story, he poses philosophical questions about finding satisfaction in our work and challenging the conventional thought that we should sacrifice our lives to make a living. Randy Komisar is an impressive guy. Although he holds a JD from Harvard Law School, he was eventually pulled toward business and its potential to bring about positive change. The brevity of life is a lesson my friend Shannon dealt me firsthand and I try to remind myself of this everyday. Related to this, the author challenges a societal norm he calls The Deferred Life Plan.
