“It’s not important to protect an idea. It’s important to protect the time it takes to make it real. You”
Christina Wodtke, Radical Focus: Achieving Your Most Important Goals with Objectives and Key Results

“Don’t tell people how to do things, tell them what you need done and let them surprise you”
Christina Wodtke, Radical Focus: Achieving Your Most Important Goals with Objectives and Key Results

“When you are tired of saying it, people are starting to hear it” – Jeff Weiner,”
Christina Wodtke, Radical Focus: Achieving Your Most Important Goals with Objectives and Key Results

“Perfectionism is the voice of the oppressor, the enemy of the people. It will keep you cramped and insane your whole life, and it is the main obstacle between you and a shitty first draft. I think perfectionism is based on the obsessive belief that if you run carefully enough, hitting each stepping-stone just right, you won't have to die. The truth is that you will die anyway and that a lot of people who aren't even looking at their feet are going to do a whole lot better than you, and have a lot more fun while they're doing it.”
Anne Lamott, Bird by Bird: Some Instructions on Writing and Life

“I thought such awful thoughts that I cannot even say them out loud because they would make Jesus want to drink gin straight out of the cat dish.”
Anne Lamott

“You can either practice being right or practice being kind.”
Anne Lamott

“Someone once asked Somerset Maughham if he wrote on a schedule or only when struck by inspiration. "I write only when inspiration strikes," he replied. "Fortunately it strikes every morning at nine o'clock sharp.”
Steven Pressfield, The War of Art: Break Through the Blocks & Win Your Inner Creative Battles

“If Epicurus were speaking to you at this moment, he would urge you to simplify life. Here's how he might put it if he were standing here today : " Lads,your needs are few, they are easily attained, and any necessary suffering can be easily tolerated. Don't complicate your life with such trivial goals as riches and fame: they are the enemy of ATARAXIA. Fame,for example,consist of the opinions of
others and requires that we must live our life as other wish. To achieve and maintain fame, we must like what others like and shun whatever it is that they shun. Hence, a life of fame or a life in politics? Flee from it. And wealth? Avoid it! It is a trap. The more we acquire the more we crave, and the deeper our sadness when our yearning is not satisfied. Lads, listen to me: If you crave happiness, do not waste your life struggling for that which you really do not need.”
Irvin D. Yalom, The Spinoza Problem
