My Rating: 5/5

These notes include Books Recommended to Tim over his interviews with various people. Do take a look in those books, you might find something useful and that you haven’t read before.

  • Questions are your pickaxes and competitive advantage.
  • Borrow liberally, combine uniquely, and create your own bespoke blueprint.
  • Very often, “our” beliefs are not our own.
  • The superheroes you have in your mind (idols, icons, titans, billionaires, etc.) are nearly all walking flaws who’ve maximized 1 or 2 strengths.
  • Everyone is fighting a battle you know nothing about.
  • Everyone struggles. Take solace in that.
  • “When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be.” —Lao Tzu
  • “The rule is: The basics are the basics, and you can’t beat the basics.”
  • take phosphatidylserine and N-acetyl cysteine (NAC). For me, this also has a noticeable impact on lowering anxiety the following day.
  • 59 Seconds: Change Your Life in Under a Minute by Richard Wiseman (for stress reduction)
  • The ONE Thing: The Surprisingly Simple Truth Behind Extraordinary Results by Gary Keller
  • when you’re a leader, people are going to mimic your behavior, at a minimum. . . . It’s a guarantee. So here’s the key piece of advice, this is all he said:
  • ‘Calm is contagious.’”

  • “If you are depressed, you are living in the past. If you are anxious, you are living in the future. If you are at peace, you are living in the present.” —Lao Tzu
  • “When you wake up in the morning, tell yourself: The people I deal with today will be meddling, ungrateful, arrogant, dishonest, jealous, and surly. They are like this because they can’t tell good from evil. But I have seen the beauty of good, and the ugliness of evil, and have recognized that the wrongdoer has a nature related to my own—not of the same blood or birth, but the same mind, and possessing a share of the divine. And so none of them can hurt me.”
  • If the commitment is to a long-term goal and not to a series of smaller intermediate goals, then only one decision needs to be made and adhered to. Clear, simple, straightforward.
  • The single decision is one of the most powerful tools in the toolbox.
  • Steve Jobs quote: “Life can be much broader, once you discover one simple fact, and that is that everything around you that you call ‘life’ was made up by people that were no smarter than you. And you can change it, you can influence it, you can build your own things that other people can use. Once you learn that, you’ll never be the same again.”
  • Seeking Wisdom: From Darwin to Munger, by Peter Bevelin.
  • “This is the subject of the book Thinking, Fast and Slow by Daniel Kahneman. There’s the instant, unconscious, automatic thinking and then there’s the slower, conscious, rational, deliberate thinking. I’m really, really into the slower thinking, breaking my automatic responses to the things in my life and slowly thinking through a more deliberate response instead. Then for the things in life where an automatic response is useful, I can create a new one consciously.
  • TIM: “What advice would you give to your 30-year-old self?” DEREK: “Don’t be a donkey.” TIM: “And what does that mean?” DEREK:  “[…]The solution is to think long-term. To realize that you can do one of these things for a few years, and then do another one for a few years, and then another. So, my advice to my 30-year-old self is, don’t be a donkey. You can do everything you want to do. You just need foresight and patience.”
  • “EVEN WHEN EVERYTHING IS GOING TERRIBLY, AND I HAVE NO REASON TO BE CONFIDENT, I JUST DECIDE TO BE.”
  • Don’t overestimate the world and underestimate yourself. You are better than you think. And you are not alone.
  • What you know doesn’t mean shit. What do you do consistently?”
  • Buffett told him, “Investing in yourself is the most important investment you’ll ever make in your life. . . . There’s no financial investment that’ll ever match it, because if you develop more skill, more ability, more insight, more capacity, that’s what’s going to really provide economic freedom. . . .
  • The reason you’re suffering is you’re focused on yourself.
  • Mindset by Carol Dweck
  • As a Man Thinketh by James Allen
  • The Autobiography of Malcolm X,
  • “You realize that you will never be the best-looking person in the room. You’ll never be the smartest person in the room. You’ll never be the most educated, the most well-versed. You can never compete on those levels. But what you can always compete on, the true egalitarian aspect to success, is hard work. You can always work harder than the next guy.”
  • process matters more than the product.
  • Reid recommends studying Ludwig Wittgenstein, about whom he’s taught a course at Oxford. “One of the bedrocks of modern analytic philosophy is to think of [language] . . . if you’re trying to talk to someone else about some problem, and you’re trying to make progress, how do you make language as positive an instrument as possible? What are the ways that language can work, and what are the ways that language doesn’t work?”
  • part of the business strategy is to solve the simplest, easiest, and most valuable problem.
  • ‘In order to move fast, I expect you’ll make some foot faults. I’m okay with an error rate of 10 to 20%—times when I would have made a different decision in a given situation—if it means you can move fast.’
  • felt empowered to make decisions with this ratio in mind, and it was incredibly liberating.”
  • “Foot faults” is a metaphor here. “Foot fault” literally refers to a penalty in tennis when you serve with improper foot placement, often due to rushing.
  • “How do you know if you have A-players on your project team? You know it if they don’t just accept the strategy you hand them.
  • Peter is known as a master debater. When he appeared on my podcast, he answered questions submitted by my fans, which were upvoted on Facebook. Notice how often he reframes the question (examines whether the question is the right question) before answering. In several cases, how he dissects wording is as interesting as his answers.
  • you don’t have to wait to start something.
  • So if you’re planning to do something with your life, if you have a 10-year plan of how to get there, you should ask: Why can’t you do this in 6 months?
  • “I think failure is massively overrated. Most businesses fail for more than one reason.
  • “The next Bill Gates will not build an operating system. The next Larry Page or Sergey Brin won’t make a search engine. And the next Mark Zuckerberg won’t create a social network. If you are copying these guys, you aren’t learning from them.”
  • I think if we move beyond the education bubble that we’re living in today, the future will be one in which people can speak about these things more clearly.”
  • when you’re very competitive, you get good at the thing you’re competing with people on. But it comes at the expense of losing out on many other things.
  • So I think, every day, it’s something to reflect on and think about ‘How do I become less competitive in order that I can become more successful?’
  • “It’s always the hard part that creates value.”
  • “You are more powerful than you think you are. Act accordingly.”
  • Goals: Setting and Achieving Them on Schedule, How to Stay Motivated, and Secrets of Closing the Sale by Zig Ziglar
  • IF YOU CAN’T GENERATE 10 IDEAS, GENERATE 20 James recommends the habit of writing down 10 ideas each morning in a waiter’s pad or tiny notebook.
  • This exercise is for developing your “idea muscle” and confidence for creativity on demand, so regular practice is more important than the topics:
  • Perfectionism is the ENEMY of the idea muscle . . .
  • The World Doesn’t Need Your Explanation. On Saying “No”:
  • “Forget purpose. It’s okay to be happy without one. The quest for a single purpose has ruined many lives.”
  • Venture Deals by Brad Feld and Jason Mendelson
  • Scott helped me refocus, to use his language, on “systems” instead of “goals.” This involves choosing projects and habits that, even if they result in “failures” in the eyes of the outside world, give you transferable skills or relationships.
  • “The second part of my blogging system is a sort of R&D for writing. I write on a variety of topics and see which ones get the best response.
  • “All you do is you pick a goal and you write it down 15 times a day in some specific sentence form, like ‘I, Scott Adams, will become an astronaut,’ for example. And you do that every day.
  • your brain isn’t capable of processing everything in its environment, or even coming close. So the best it can do is set up these little filters. And the way it sets its filters is by what you pay attention to. It’s what you spend the most energy on. . . . That’s how you set your filter. So your filter is automatically set for your name, because that’s the thing that matters most to you.
  • you can use these affirmations, presumably—this is just a hypothesis—to focus your mind and your memory on a very specific thing.
  • One of the ways to not worry about stress is to eliminate it.
  • I have a diversified portfolio.
  • Diversification works in almost every area of your life to reduce your stress.”
  • If you want an average, successful life, it doesn’t take much planning. Just stay out of trouble, go to school, and apply for jobs you might like. But if you want something extraordinary, you have two paths: 1) Become the best at one specific thing. 2) Become very good (top 25%) at two or more things.
  • first strategy is difficult to the point of near impossibility. Few people will ever play in the NBA or make a platinum album. I don’t recommend anyone even try. The second strategy is fairly easy. Everyone has at least a few areas in which they could be in the top 25% with some effort.
  • Capitalism rewards things that are both rare and valuable. You make yourself rare by combining two or more “pretty goods” until no one else has your mix.
  • At least one of the skills in your mixture should involve communication, either written or verbal.
  • The 22 Immutable Laws of Marketing by Al Ries and Jack Trout,
  • AMPLIFY YOUR STRENGTHS RATHER THAN FIX YOUR WEAKNESSES
  • ‘When you complain, nobody wants to help you,’
  • If you spend your time focusing on the things that are wrong, and that’s what you express and project to people you know, you don’t become a source of growth for people, you become a source of destruction for people.
  • Genghis Khan and the Making of the Modern World.
  • recommendation—ask for 10% off of your next few coffees.
  • The coffee challenge sounds kind of silly, but the whole point is that—in business and in life—you don’t have to be on the extreme, but you have to ask for things, and you have to put yourself out there.”
  • “Frustration is a matter of expectation.”
  • tools for habit tracking and behavioral modification Way of Life app.
  • ‘The biggest mistake you can make is to accept the norms of your time.’ Not accepting norms is where you innovate, whether it’s with technology, with books, with anything. So, not accepting the norm is the secret to really big success and changing the world.”
  • “Writer’s block does not actually exist. . . . Writer’s block is almost like the equivalent of impotence. It’s performance pressure you put on yourself that keeps you from doing something you naturally should be able to do.”
  • “Be open to whatever comes next.”—John Cage
  • “Be the silence that listens.”—Tara Brach
  • “Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming ‘Wow! What a Ride!’”—Hunter S. Thompson,
  • Sometimes you need to stop doing things you love in order to nurture the one thing that matters most.”
  • Vagabonding: An Uncommon Guide to the Art of Long-Term World Travel by Rolf Potts
  • Travel isn’t just for changing what’s outside, it’s for reinventing what’s inside.
  • Earning your freedom, of course, involves work—and work is intrinsic to vagabonding for psychic reasons as much as financial ones.
  • Work is not just an activity that generates funds and creates desire: It’s the vagabonding gestation period, wherein you earn your integrity, start making plans, and get your proverbial act together. Work is a time to dream about travel and write notes to yourself, but it’s also the time tie up your loose ends. Work is when you confront the problems you might otherwise be tempted to run away from. Work is how you settle your financial and emotional debts—so that your travels are not an escape from your real life, but a discovery of your real life.
  • PETER’S LAWS:
    Law 2: When given a choice . . . take both.
    Law 3: Multiple projects lead to multiple successes.
    Law 7: If you can’t win, change the rules.
    Law 8: If you can’t change the rules, then ignore them.
    Law 13: When in doubt: THINK.
    Law 16: The faster you move, the slower time passes, the longer you live.
    Law 17: The best way to predict the future is to create it yourself. (adopted from Alan Kay)
  • but—don’t be so impressed.
  • There’s no reason that you can’t have the things that the people you admire have.
  • take as long as you want if you’re talented. You’ll get their attention again if you have a reason to.”
  • As Marcus Aurelius and Ryan Holiday would say, “The obstacle is the way.” This doesn’t mean seeing problems, accepting them, and leaving them to fester. Nor does it mean rationalizing problems into good things. To me, it means using pain to find clarity. If pain is examined and not ignored, it can show you what to excise from your life.
  • “fear-setting” exercise on paper, in which I ask and answer, “What is really the worst that could happen if I stopped doing what I’m considering? And so what? How could I undo any damage?”
  • Dig into your fears, and you’ll often find that the mental monsters are harmless scarecrows. Sometimes, it just takes a piece of paper and a few questions to create a breakthrough.
  • What do you have to lose? Chances are, next to nothing.
  • STARGAZING AS THERAPY “When you are struggling with just about anything, look up. Just ponder the night sky for a minute and realize that we’re all on the same planet at the same time. As far as we can tell, we’re the only planet with life like ours on it anywhere nearby. Then you start looking at the stars, and you realize that the light hitting your eye is ancient, [some of the] stars that you’re seeing, they no longer exist by the time that the light gets to you. Just mulling the bare-naked facts of the cosmos is enough to thrill me, awe me, freak me out, and kind of put all my neurotic anxieties in their proper place. A lot of people—when you’re standing at the edge of your horizon, at death’s door, you can be much more in tune with the cosmos.”
  • To “fix” someone’s problem, you very often just need to empathically listen to them.
  • If an introverted hospice patient were to say, “Give me one to three things that I can watch, do, absorb, look at, etc., without human interaction,” what would your answer be?
  • “If you’re looking for a formula for greatness, the closest we’ll ever get, I think, is this: Consistency driven by a deep love of the work.”
  • “All those artists and writers who bemoan how hard the work is, and oh, how tedious the creative process, and oh, what a tortured genius they are. Don’t buy into it. . . . As if difficulty and struggle and torture somehow confer seriousness upon your chosen work.
  • Doing great work simply because you love it, sounds, in our culture, somehow flimsy, and that’s a failing of our culture, not of the choice of work that artists make.”
  • WHEN IN DOUBT, SCRATCH YOUR OWN ITCH
  • Don’t try to please anyone but yourself. . . .
  • The second you start doing it for an audience, you’ve lost the long game because creating something that is rewarding and sustainable over the long run requires, most of all, keeping yourself excited about it. . . .
  • DISCIPLINE EQUALS FREEDOM
  • EXPOSING YOURSELF TO DARKNESS TO SEE THE LIGHT “I think that in order to truly experience the light and the bright, you have to see the darkness. I think if you shield yourself from the darkness, you’ll not appreciate—and fully understand—the beauty of life.”
  • IF YOU WANT TO BE TOUGHER, BE TOUGHER “If you want to be tougher mentally, it is simple: Be tougher. Don’t meditate on it.”
  • TOOLS OF A HACKER: How to protect your data on your computer and mobile devices,
    Use BitLocker on Windows or FileVault on OS X.
    Consider using the free, cross-platform tool VeraCrypt.
    Detecting Malware or Software Behaving Badly on Your Computer
    NetLimiter on Windows or Little Snitch on OS X
    BlockBlock on OS X, which notifies you if a program is trying to install itself to run upon startup, even when it’s hiding itself in a nook or cranny of your system, and you have the clear option to block it if you wish.
    Anonymizing Yourself on the Internet
    Tor is a free, cross-platform software that allows you to browse the Internet anonymously and helps you defend against network surveillance.
    When you take a picture with your smartphone, it’s typically recording your GPS coordinates and other data about the picture, such as device used, into the image.
    This is called EXIF data and is metadata that’s hidden in the image, and anyone can recover it if you send the image directly to them. You can disable storing location in phones on various platforms
    LinkLiar on OS X to spoof or randomize your MAC address. A MAC address is a fixed, unique hardware identifier of the network device within your computer and never changes otherwise.
    use the Elements tab in the Developer Tools (mentioned above), right-click on any element in the tab, and click Remove. Don’t worry, if you remove the wrong thing, you can simply refresh the page and try again!
    Google Reverse Image Search is a surprisingly useful tool if you’re ever trying to perform reconnaissance, or just learn where an image came from or where else it might be used on the Internet.
  • THREE PRACTICES FOR MENTAL TOUGHNESS:
    “What are three tests or practices from the military that civilians could use to help develop mental toughness?”:
    “The first is to push yourself harder than you believe you’re capable of. You’ll find new depth inside yourself.
    The second is to put yourself in groups who share difficulties, discomfort. We used to call it ‘shared privation.’ You’ll find that when you have been through that kind of difficult environment, that you feel more strongly about that which you’re committed
  • ‘The secrets to life are hidden behind the word “cliché.”’ So any time you hear something that you think is a cliché, my tip to you is to perk your ears up and listen more carefully.”
  • Think about how old you are right now and think about being a 10-year-older version of yourself. Then think, ‘What would I probably tell myself as an older version of myself?’
  • WORK WILL WORK WHEN NOTHING ELSE WILL WORK
  • “‘YOU ARE GOING TO DIE!’”
  • Shay constantly reminds himself of the shortness of life and inevitability of death. I also build memento mori (reminders of death) into my schedule, whether reading Seneca and other stoicism, spending time with hospice caretakers, visiting graveyards (e.g., Omaha Beach), or placing the memoirs of the recently deceased cover-out in my living room.
  • The Power of Persuasion by Robert Levine. The ability to be convincing, sell ideas, and persuade other people is a meta-skill that transfers to many areas of your life.
  • “An analogy I use is, if you’re going out for dinner, it’s going to take you a couple of hours. You spend 5 minutes working out where to go for dinner. It seems reasonable to spend 5% of your time on how to spend the remaining 95%. If you did that with your career, that would be 4,000 hours, or 2 working years. And actually, I think that’s a pretty legitimate thing to do—spending that length of time trying to work out how should you be spending the rest of your life.”
  • THE DICKENS PROCESS—WHAT ARE YOUR BELIEFS COSTING YOU?
  • What has each belief cost you in the past, and what has it cost people you’ve loved in the past? What have you lost because of this belief? See it, hear it, feel it.
  • What is each costing you and people you care about in the present? See it, hear it, feel it.
  • What will each cost you and people you care about 1, 3, 5, and 10 years from now? See it, hear it, feel it.
  • “When we feel pain in one time zone—meaning past, present, or future—we just switch to another time zone rather than change, because change brings so much uncertainty and so much instability and so much fear to people.” The Dickens Process doesn’t allow you to dodge any time zones.
  • “When I articulated that I didn’t care anymore about what anybody thought about what I did except me, all the weight of the world came off my shoulders, and everything became possible. It shifted to everybody else [being] worried. Now they’re worried. But everything for me, it shifted to a place where I felt free.”
  • “On one level, wisdom is nothing more than the ability to take your own advice. It’s actually very easy to give people good advice. It’s very hard to follow the advice that you know is good. . . . If someone came to me with my list of problems, I would be able to sort that person out very easily.”
  • “‘Mindfulness’ is just that quality of mind which allows you to pay attention to sights and sounds and sensations, and even thoughts themselves, without being lost in thought and without grasping at what is pleasant and pushing what is unpleasant away. . . .
  • What is “vipassana” meditation? “It’s simply a method of paying exquisitely close and nonjudgmental attention to whatever you’re experiencing anyway.”
  • “I am not against fear. I think fear is definitely important. It’s there to keep us safe. But I do feel like some people give it too much priority. It’s one of the many things that we use to assess a situation.
  • “Action may not always bring happiness, but there is no happiness without action.” —Benjamin Disraeli,
  • Usually, what we most fear doing is what we most need to do.
  • What are you waiting for? If you cannot answer this without resorting to the BS concept of “good timing,” the answer is simple: You’re afraid, just like the rest of the world. Measure the cost of inaction, realize the unlikelihood and repairability of most missteps, and develop the most important habit of those who excel and enjoy doing so: action.
  • “The Zen mantra is ‘Sit, sit. Walk, walk. Don’t wobble.’ . . . It’s this idea that when I’m with a person, that’s total priority. Anything else is multitasking. No, no, no, no. The people-to-people, person-to-person trumps anything else. I have given my dedication to this. If I go to a play or a movie, I am at the movie. I am not anywhere else. It’s 100%—I am going to listen. If I go to a conference, I am going to go to the conference.”
  • This is very similar to Derek Sivers’s (page 184) “Don’t be a donkey” rule. In a world of distraction, single-tasking is a superpower.
  • Fear-setting (page 463) is one instrument in the toolbox of conquering fear. Another of my favorites is fear-rehearsing—regularly microdosing myself with the worst-case scenario as inoculation.
  • Fear-setting (page 463) is one instrument in the toolbox of conquering fear. Another of my favorites is fear-rehearsing—regularly microdosing myself with the worst-case scenario as inoculation. One exchange with Jocko Willink (page 412) explains the value of planned exposure to the “bad”:
  • The Art of Learning by Josh Waitzkin
  • “JUST TAKE ON THE PAIN, AND WEAR IT AS A SHIRT”
  • TIM: “I love it. So you disarmed the insult by adopting it completely.”
    AMANDA: “Which kind of is my life philosophy.”
  • “‘Honor those who seek the truth, beware of those who’ve found it’ [adapted from Voltaire]. A reminder that the path never ends and that absolutely nobody has this shit figured out.”
  • #1—It doesn’t matter how many people don’t get it. What matters is how many people do.
  • #2—10% of people will find a way to take anything personally. Expect it and treat it as math.
  • ‘Believe in yourself more deeply. You’re bigger than that. Dream bigger,’
  • ON BEING THE BEST VERSION OF YOURSELF As Oscar Wilde is thought to have said, “Be yourself. Everyone else is taken”
  • “The most important trick to be happy is to realize that happiness is a choice that you make and a skill that you develop. You choose to be happy, and then you work at it. It’s just like building muscles.”
  • “If you want to be successful, surround yourself with people who are more successful than you are, but if you want to be happy, surround yourself with people who are less successful than you are.”
  • ‘Enlightenment is the space between your thoughts,’ which means that enlightenment isn’t this thing you achieve after 30 years sitting in a corner on a mountaintop. It’s something you can achieve moment to moment, and you can be a certain percentage enlightened every single day.”
  • “Desire is a contract you make with yourself to be unhappy until you get what you want.”
  • Watch every thought. (Always ask, “Why am I having this thought?”)
  • So the best advice I learned by mistake, and that is: Be willing to fail or succeed on who you really are. Don’t ever try to be anything else.
  • What you are is good enough for whatever it is you’re doing.”
  • 75% of success is staying calm and not losing your nerve.
  • “A person’s success in life can usually be measured by the number of uncomfortable conversations he or she is willing to have.”
  • Theodore Roosevelt’s famous “arena” quote (“The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming. . . .”).
  • SHAME VERSUS GUILT “Shame is ‘I am a bad person.’ Guilt is ‘I did something bad.’ . . . Shame is a focus on self. Guilt is a focus on behavior.”
  • WHAT’S ON THE OTHER SIDE OF FEAR? NOTHING.
  • “They tried to bury us. They didn’t know we were seeds.” — Mexican proverb
  • “The technical part of any job is 10%. 90% is creativity. If you already know how to be creative, you’ve kind of got the battle half beat, [because] you don’t need to know.
  • YOU NEVER HAVE TO BE UPSET ABOUT ANYTHING
    ‘I’m going to tell you a secret in life: You never have to be upset about anything. Everything is for a purpose.
  • That’s it. When things are going bad, don’t get all bummed out, don’t get startled, don’t get frustrated. No. Just look at the issue and say: “Good.”
  • Accept reality, but focus on the solution. Take that issue, take that setback, take that problem, and turn it into something good. Go forward. And, if you are part of a team, that attitude will spread throughout.
