He was very effective at getting what he wanted.
We may not want to copy all his traits, but some were extremely good- mentors, conquering the world. From 19-31 he conquered most of the known world.
IP vs PI.
It’s very hard to predict 10 years in the future, know what your goals for today are instead- tomorrow is not as clear, things can happen (chaos theory). People on the rising move towards their goals every day, Hollywood has a lot of supply, and almost no demand.
Don’t be somebody you wouldn’t invest in.
Bulletproof diet still doesn’t really reverse age, you’re your youngest you’ll ever be today.
Alexander walked to India without any machines while meeting hostile people- he’s a good role model.
When it comes to your life, the statics don’t matter- only you matter, not how long will other people live. Just because statistically most 18-year-old people will live long, it doesn’t mean you should wait until the next year to do something, you don’t know if you’ll be alive then.
Understand age in a different way- maybe 80-year-old grandfather will live longer than you.
You know something today, not everything, but enough to start today. Multiple micro-actions are better than one big action. Start now with what you have.
It usually comes down to a weird combination of fear and abundance- too much or not enough.
“The chains of habits are too weak to be felt until they’re too strong to be broken.”- It’s a fool’s game to try to change habits in 20 days that you were building for 20 years.
Start as you’re going to die tomorrow, but stick with it like you still have 20 years.
The opposite of fear is abundance, in our fear we act as if we’re immortal; not wanting to do anything.
We’re not abundant with time, so use that to be impatient, while using abundance to stick with it.
What’s an example of a long-term goal you had for health, wealth, love and happiness that should have been done much quicker?
What is something you can start impatiently right now and how are you going to break it into bite-size chunks?
