Quote from Timothy Ferriss:
Short, sweet, and to the point. Clear writing, and therefore clear commands, comes from clear thinking. Think simple.
Enjoy yourself--it's later than you think.
We all have times when we think more effectively, and times when we should not be thinking at all.
Don’t be deceived into thinking that by changing the external, the internal will be changed. It works the other way around. The path that needs changing is the one in your mind.
What I must do is all that concerns me, not what the people think. This rule, equally arduous in actual and in intellectual life, may serve for the whole distinction between greatness and meanness.
What we fear doing most is usually what we most need to do.
If you really want to break from the pack, you have to risk being perceived to be as eccentric as these people. You have to think exception-ally—a LOT!
When I am working on a problem I never think about beauty. I only think about how to solve the problem. But when I have finished, if the solution is not beautiful, I know it is wrong.
All you have to do to find a way out of your self-imposed prison is to retrain your thinking.
It isn’t enough to think outside the box. Thinking is passive. Get used to acting outside the box.
We may divide thinkers into those who think for themselves and those who think through others. The latter are the rule and the former the exception. The first are original thinkers in a double sense, and egotists in the noblest meaning of the word.
Nothing terrible has ever happened except in our thinking. Reality is always good, even in situations that seem like nightmares. The story we tell is the only nightmare that we have lived.
