Focus on the Process

Don’t just think about how you’re going to accomplish your goals; think about how you’re going to design for them.

Rather than relying completely on self-control, intentionally design your environment to make the hard thing easier. 

We sometimes forget to be fully present and enjoy special moments.

These kinds of moments give and strength and happiness: When things aren’t going well, we can fall back on happy memories to give us the resilience to move forward.

Knowledge is always evolving and advancing — if you want to evolve and advance with it, you need to keep an open mind.

And to keep an open mind, leave your ego at the door.
