BOOK: Stuff I Wish I Knew Earlier: Luki Danukarjanto


If you were able to tell yourself in 2nd, 3rd, 4th year, all of the stuff you wished you knew earlier, what would you tell yourself?

This book recounts some of the top SIWIKE I have for myself. Starting out with some foundational information and mindset. The continuing with very tactical and practical exercises from learning to learn, productivity, finance, and the job hunt (coming from my experience from the corporate world, as well a campus recruiter).

“Stuff I Wish I Knew Earlier” was read Feb 2019

Why I decided to read it

Is it vain of me to read my own book? Possibly. It’s been over a year since it was published (Nov 2017) and I’ve learned a lot since then. So much so, that I started to forget what I put in and left out of the book. When I initially wrote it, it was a 400+ page monstrosity that eventually got cut to 200 pages (mainly to fit the millennial attention span). And since then, I probably have at least another 200 more to add. I decided to re-read the book the remind myself what was actually in there.

I’m hoping to write the “Young Professionals” edition soon.

Who should read it

Those in post-secondary (college, university). Especially those that are lost and don’t know what they want to do after graduation. As well as for those that know what they want to do, and don’t know how to get there. And perhaps, those that know what they want, how to get there, and just want to accelerate their journey.

Students who are in high school, probably a bit more mature and thinking about their career more than just which school to go to next

Anyone into self-development. And specifically those that want to get to know me and my journey more.

Memorable highlights for me

Umm… the whole book since it’s kind of about all of the highlights I encountered.
