“Essentialism is not about how to get more things done; it’s about how to get the right things done. It doesn’t mean just doing less for the sake of less either. It is about making the wisest possible investment of your time and energy in order to operate at our highest point of contribution by doing only what is essential.”
Greg McKeown, Essentialism: The Disciplined Pursuit of Less

Jerry Mahoney
“I read my email aloud to hear how it sounded, then I read it again in a British accent to make sure it didn’t come across as pretentious.”
Jerry Mahoney, Mommy Man: How I Went from Mild-Mannered Geek to Gay Superdad

“Lincoln had pictured himself building firewalls and protecting the newspaper from dangerous hackers—”
Rainbow Rowell, Attachments

John Williams
“his forty-third year William Stoner learned what others, much younger, had learned before him: that the person one loves at first is not the person one loves at last, and that love is not an end but a process through which one person attempts to know another.”
John Williams, Stoner

“The more predictable you are, the better you will be at estimating how long something will take and the more promises you can make about your work.”
