3 IDEAS FROM ME
“Simple is nearly always better. But if it's going to be complicated, then make sure the problem is worth the complexity. A great deal of time is wasted creating complex solutions to relatively unimportant problems.”
“Many situations in life are similar to going on a hike: the view changes once you start walking.
You don't need all the answers right now. New paths will reveal themselves if you have the courage to get started.”
A simple reminder from Atomic Habits:
“Time will multiply whatever you feed it. Good habits make time your ally. Bad habits make time your enemy.”
2 QUOTES FROM OTHERS
Singer and songwriter, Aretha Franklin, on seeing people as more than just their worst moment:
“You cannot define a person on just one thing. You can’t just forget all these wonderful and good things that a person has done because one thing didn’t come off the way you thought it should come off.”

Computer programmer Ward Cunningham on the importance of making fast, reversible decisions:
“I can't tell you how much time is spent worrying about decisions that don't matter. To just be able to make a decision and see what happens is tremendously empowering, but that means you have to set up the situation such that when something does go wrong, you can fix it.”
