The Story Behind Peter’s Laws
Mindset matters. It’s everything. These laws are Peter’s mindset for success — the way he looks at life.
When he was a fresh MIT graduate, he began working at International Space University, a startup at the time, and one of his co-founders, Todd Hawley, put a copy of Murphy’s Laws on the office wall.
Do you know Murphy’s Law? “If anything can go wrong, it will.”
Just think of how awful it would be to actually believe this nonsense!
When he saw this poster, he laughed out loud but then he got angry. He went to the whiteboard behind his desk and wrote: “If anything can go wrong, Fix It! (To hell with Murphy!)”
Then above it, he wrote, “Peter’s Law.”
Over the years, he started collecting more such “Laws” — principles and truisms that led him (and others he studied) to be successful. He wrote them down and today he has 28 of them.
