  • You lead by letting others know what you expect of them, which may exceed what they themselves expect. Provide them a reputation to live up to.
  • Habit is far more dependable than inspiration. Don’t focus on getting into shape. Focus on becoming the kind of person who never misses a workout.
  • “Every great and difficult thing has required a strong sense of optimism,”
  • Prototype your life. Try stuff instead of making grand plans.
  • The best way to learn anything is to try to teach what you know.
  • Don’t create things to make money; make money so you can create things. The reward for good work is more work.
  • The more you are interested in others, the more interesting they’ll find you. To be interesting, be interested.
  • Promptness is a sign of respect.
  • The consistency of your endeavors (exercise, companionship, work) is more important than the quantity. Nothing beats small things done every day, which is way more important than what you do occasionally.

    My major takeaway is — Habit is far more dependable than inspiration. This podcast episode packed a punch! I’ll definitely be revisiting this episode for a boost of inspiration in the future. Thank you!
