1. Give away what you most wish to receive.
2. The conversations you are resisting are the ones you most need to be having.
3. All great thinkers are initially ridiculed, but later revered.
4. The more you worry about being applauded by others and making money, the less you will focus on doing the great work that'll generate you applause. And money.
5. The more messes you allow into your life, the more messes will become a normal and acceptable part of your life. Have a high bar for yourself.
6. The secret to genius is not genetics but daily practice married with relentless perseverance.
7. The best leaders lift people up when others tear them down.
8. The most precious resource for all ambitious people is not their time, it's their energy. You should manage it well.
9. The more you go to your limits, the more your limits will expand.
10. Be so good at what you do that no one else in the world can do what you can do.
11. It generally takes about 10 years to become an overnight sensation.
12. Never leave the site of a strong idea without doing something to execute it.
13. Do a few things at mastery versus many things at mediocrity.
14. Spend more time in learning than in leisure.
15. Success lies in a masterful consistency around a few fundamentals. It really is simple. Not easy. But simple.
