33% Rule

Spend 33% of your time with people below you. They need you. It is humble to help.

Spend the other 33% of your time with people equal to you. These people are your friends.

Spend the last 33% of your time with people above you. This is the path most people forget about. So for example you want to build a 1 million dollar company, then talk to someone who has already built a 10 million dollar comany. This is called the 10X Rule. Such people should be 10 or 20 years ahead your path.

Most good mentors are dead. But we have them in our books! You should read a book a week . Tai can read a book a day. He looks at the contents, then he flips all the pages, then he does it again, and finally he reads 1 chapter of the book.

He says most books have not more than 2 or 3 worthy ideas.

Learn to persevere. Tai's friend went to a mentor's office 17 times to seek his guidance and just get rejected till the 18th time. 

Learn to do cold emailing. it ain't possible for you to eat lunch with every mentor you meet. Here is a link for cold emailing- https://youtu.be/_wQGd6Crkaw

Some quotes

All people want a good life, but not all people get a good life.

All people want a good life, but not all people get humble enough to get a good life.

All people want a good life, but not all people read enough to get a good life.

All people want a good life, but not all people persevere enough to get a good life.

All people want a good life, but not all people toughen up to get a good life.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Shankul Varada

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.


Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

Ghazala Begum

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
