My favorite thought of him, you will find on Linkedin.
What I am working on:
Get rid of irrelevant details so that the essential things and the relationships between them stand out. As the saying goes, “Any damn fool can make it complex. It takes a genius to make it simple.”
Principles I try to follow:
1. People who push through successfully have to-do lists that are reasonably prioritized, and they make certain each item is ticked oﬀ in order.
2. No matter how open-minded you are now, it is something you can learn. Make it to your habit!
3. What successful people do…
4. Life is like a giant smorgasbord with more delicious alternatives than you can ever hope to taste. Choosing a goal often means rejecting some things you want in order to get other things that you want or need even more.
5. People who achieve success and drive progress deeply understand the cause-effect relationships that govern reality and have principles for using them to get what they want.
6. Everyone has weaknesses. They are generally revealed in the patterns of mistakes they make. Knowing what your weaknesses are and staring hard at them is the first step on the path to success.
7. Achievement orientation is important, but people who obsess over a $1,200 pair of shoes or a fancy car are very rarely happy because they don’t know what it is that they really want and hence what will satisfy them.
