Plus minus and equal

So, I decided to take a break from listening to podcasts for a couple of weeks and instead just do audiobooks. All the time. And boy, I’ve accumulated a lot of hours over just the past week. Instead of going for the newer titles in my library, I’m focusing on the books that I’ve already […]

Getting to world-class is useless!

Because everyone wants to be the best in the world but nobody wants to do anything about it. Why? I don’t know why perhaps everyone likes to dream? Or it’s just easier said than done and people seem to have accepted it. Sure everyone’s entitled to their lives and the choices they make, if only […]

And here’s what’s ridiculous — people have made a fortune writing about how to use […]

Most importantly, the lists are a reflection of who they really were. Check out Da Vinci’s list: [Calculate] the measurement of Milan and Suburbs [Find] a book that […]

Advice to 20 year Olds…

I hate Gary Vaynerchuk for inspiring entrepreneurs to do shit. Half of them do good for themselves. The remaining 25% would fail and go back to doing what they always have done. The rest of them become wannabe-Garys. And that’s a problem. I logged into LinkedIn this afternoon to check on the feeds and review […]

How tracking progress daily can help you become good at absolutely anything!

Disclaimer: follow the advice below at your own risk… if you stay at it long enough, it just works! I won’t rant about the reasons why you should track progress daily or how beneficial it can be for you. There’s enough anecdotal and empirical evidence out there. And I won’t even bother hyperlinking for reference. […]
