Happy Saturday!

Here are 3 ideas, 2 quotes, and 1 question to ponder this week.

3 IDEAS FROM ME


I. 

Focus is the art of knowing what to ignore.
 


II.

On minimalism:

The goal is not to have the least amount of things, but the optimal amount of things.

Two important footnotes:

(1) The optimal amount depends on your goals.
(2) The optimal amount is almost always less than you think. 
 



III.

Reading is like a software update for your brain. 

Whenever you learn a new concept or idea, the “software” improves. You download new features and fix old bugs.

In this way, reading a good book can give you a new way to view your life experiences. Your past is fixed, but your interpretation of it can change depending on the software you use to analyze it.
 


2 QUOTES FROM OTHERS


I.  

Jeffrey D. Sachs, an economist and author, on money, spending, and status:

“Living doesn’t cost much, but showing off does.”

II. 

Eliud Kipchoge, one of the great Kenyan philosophers, on legacy:

If you dont write things down then you will be empty. I need to put down everything to show the next generation that I was well organised. That’s I know you what am doing. “They say ink it and you will remember it”.
