Can you change them back to the faded blue color going down with each rule?

Links)
When I click each of them, I get the popup security warning (see attached). Is there a way to prevent people from getting those warnings? Those warnings are not generated by the pdf, but by the browser and/or the reader. In Acrobat go to Edit>Preferences>Trust Manager to change the default setting. I've tried using different software to open the pdf: in one program I got the same warning you did, in a different program I didn't get any warnings. Yes this is dumb, but there's nothing we can do from our end.

About the Author)
update title
change last paragraph to say:
"He is currently living the dream and could not be happier with the way things are going. Malloy just wrapped up a month long adventure to CA because he can now go anywhere in the world where it is sunny and call it a “business trip.” When not traveling, Malloy spends most of his time in DC at the PunchRock office."


Cover)
updated text and bolded to let you know how important things are to emphasize
some lines are hard to follow because of where the text goes...make it easier to follow the flow
check out the holstee one and notice how full thoughts run across each line...your format has thoughts on one half of the page and multiple lines...hard to follow (e.g., career capital/skills part on sixth line)
use a font that is much bolder and will fill up the whitespace with black text
some of the lines have a lot of space between letters because of full alignment. not sure how to fix that. maybe make the size larger but more condensed to remove white space

Don't follow your passion. Adopt the Craftsman Mindset. Focus on deliberate practice. Define your comfort zone. Stretch [I like how the text was stretched] outside of it. Earn career capital. Get rare and valuable skills. Get control. Turn down a promotion. Follow the law of financial viability. Define your compelling mission. Define your life's work. Place a little bet. Analyze the results. Tweak. Pivot. Create a new hypothesis. Repeat. Throw ten things at the wall. See what three stick. [don't emphasize three] Focus on them. Fail small. Fail big. [do what you did with font size for small/big...I removed that part]. Fail often. Learn from failure. Grow. Play nice. Share. Be remarkable. [be remarkable should be on the right side on the second to last line] Be so good they can't ignore you.

I like the blue for the last line


Conclusion)
The primary theme of this book is to teach you how to find work you love. To find work you love, you must ignore Steve Jobs' advice to "follow your passion." Career passions are rare and take time to develop. Instead, you must adopt the Craftsman Mindset and focus on deliberate practice and stretching your abilities outside of your comfort zone. By doing so, you will earn more career capital to invest in the rare and valuable traits that define great work.

Control is one of the most important traits that define great work. It is a dream job elixir that increases your sense of fulfillment, engagement, and happiness. However, control can be dangerous. The first control trap occurs when you have not earned enough career capital to sustain your desired level of control. The second control trap occurs when you have enough career capital to take control of your working life, but your current employer does not want to give you control. To avoid these control traps, you must follow the law of financial viability and pursue new ventures that people will pay for.

To find work you love, you need to define a clear and compelling mission for your "work." Missions, similar to control, require career capital and the patience of the Craftsman Mindset. Your quest to achieve your mission will require little bets, small hypotheses with rapid and frequent feedback to learn which direction(s) to follow. These little bets teach you to accept failure as a necessary part of the learning process when stretching outside your comfort zone. To be successful, you must inspire people to remark about your work and give them a platform to communicate with the larger community. I encourage you to share this book with others who want to find work they love.
