9 STASHED IDEAS

Some big ideas from the book
  • Only once you give yourself permission to stop trying to do it all, to stop saying yes to everyone, can you make your highest contribution towards the things that really matter.
  • Essentialism is about deliberately distinguishing the vital few from the trivial many, eliminating the non-essentials, and then removing any obstacles so the essential things have a clear, smooth passage.
  • If you don’t prioritize your life, someone else will.
  • The Paradox of Success: the more options we have, the more we feel distracted from what would otherwise be our highest level of contribution.

Observe it.

When you see someone who has a lot of knowledge, they learned it over time.

When you see someone who has a lot of skills, they developed them over time.

When you see someone who has done a lot, they accomplished it over time.

When you see someone who has a lot of money, they earned it over time.

The key is over time. Success is built sequentially. It’s one thing at a time.
