3 IDEAS FROM ME
“I rarely have good ideas.
To overcome this limitation, I think about one topic (like habits) for an unreasonable amount of time. Then, I revise, revise, revise until only the best stuff remains. It’s slow, but it works.
You can either be a genius or you can be patient.”
“You can attract luck simply by sharing your work publicly.”
“For a few weeks, I started each morning by writing “What do I actually want?” at the top of a blank page.
It’s surprising how useful it is to keep asking the same question. Each time, my answer became more precise.
Once I knew what I wanted, I turned it into action steps.”
