You probably haven’t heard of Gary Fong.
Even though I’m an avid photographer, I hadn’t heard of him until a photographer buddy clued me in. He is known as an innovative wedding photographer, entrepreneur and writer. In The Accidental Millionaire, Fong tells us his life story so far, illustrating a personal philosophy that has lead to his wild success.
What I found so compelling is that his approach to life appears very much at odds with what we typically see when we read about success. In contrast to vision, goals, tasks and actions, Fong writes about a more Zen-flavored philosophy that is based on exploring things that interest him, creating space for insights to happen and then working his ass off once something catches. He admits he acts on hunches, sometimes decides by flipping a coin and understands the role luck has in success.
