3 IDEAS FROM ME

I.

“In times of uncertainty, your habits can ground you.

When you feel overwhelmed, practice 1 minute of mindfulness.

When you feel restless, do a 1-minute workout.

When the world seems uncontrollable, focus on what you can control.”


II.

“The two skills of modern business: Storytelling and spreadsheets.

Know the numbers. Craft the narrative.”


III.

“People keep reading self-help and revisiting the same ideas because that’s precisely what we need: to be reminded.

The problem is not that information is unhelpful, but that attention is fleeting.

Nobody focuses on one idea every minute of the day. Good books refocus the mind.”

Tennis champion and Presidential Medal of Freedom recipient Arthur Ashe on change:

“Most people resist change, even when it promises to be for the better. But change will come, and if you acknowledge this simple but indisputable fact of life, and understand that you must adjust to all change, then you will have a head start.”
