Delivering Happiness: A Path to Profits, Passion, and Purpose

Delivering Happiness

If you want a fun, inspiring read, check out Delivering Happiness: A Path to Profits, Passion, and Purpose by Tony Hsieh. Tony tells the story about what drives him, talks through his peaks and valleys, and expresses the energy and commitment it took to help Zappos survive and make it the organization it is today.

Tony’s drive, tenacity, innovativeness, and desire to put people first is what I took away from this book. For this book, I got both the Kindle and Audible version — I stopped reading it as soon as I heard Tony telling the story and hearing from the actual people involved in making Zappos what it is today. I highly recommend the audio version of the book.

My career journey has had me wearing many hats ranging from Systems Analyst to Programmer to IT Manager to Programmer to Director. Today, I work as a coach and instructor to the leadership and team members of organizations on their agility journey. I'm constantly practicing to be a good learner, aspiring to be an inspiring leader, and I'm constantly walking the line between pragmatism and conviction when it comes to the application of lean and agile principles and practices.

Matt’s purpose is simple, “I believe in working with teams to help them get better, learn, and be successful in building stuff while having fun.”

At the end of the day, Matt believes in integrity, hard work, curiosity, people, and faith.
