  • Why Steve Jobs Stole His Ideas

“Innovative ideas have to come from somewhere. No matter how unique or unprecedented a work seems, dig a little deeper and you will always find that the creator stood on someone else’s shoulders.”


  • How to Take a Break from Your Mind

“A small amount of imagination-induced pain goes a long way, however. We don’t need to suffer as much as we do.”


  • Non-Ideal Productivity

“It’s not a productivity failure to have only 24 hours in the day, and more uses for your time than can ever possibly fulfilled. Instead, productivity failures come from the mismanagement of existing resources: time, energy, motivation.”


  • The Polymath Advantage

“Range over mastery — people who embrace diverse skills, experiences and perspectives will increasingly thrive.”
