(book) 7 habits of highly effective people
Learning from everybody that you meet, mostly what not to do- principle of inversion (what not to do)
Sherlock said that sometimes when you remove all that can’t be true, what you’re left with must be true even if it seems unlikely.
People connect better if you don’t edit out everything, if it’s about content, not about the quality of the video- it’s not about filming transformers.
You have to discover things; it’s not that easy to figure out what you should be doing with your life- a lot of people pass time, but only a few people really live.
Get better at reading signs, being aware- then you have got good at making hard choices (not having all the available information (optimum stopping- you can’t research for your whole life before you decide, you’ll spend your life in the analysis being paralyzed).

To not be successful in money you need to be lazy and unreliable- doing it for 2 weeks, then not doing it for the next 3 months; spending more than they earn, starting to save at 55.

Another way to fail is to not know yourself.
Freud’s essay about happiness; know what makes you happy.
