Morgan Housel
“Money’s greatest intrinsic value—and this can’t be overstated—is its ability to give you control over your time.”
Morgan Housel, The Psychology of Money: Timeless lessons on wealth, greed, and happiness

Andy Greenberg
“It’s clear where the world is going. We’re entering a world where every thermostat, every electrical heater, every air conditioner, every power plant, every medical device, every hospital, every traffic light, every automobile will be connected to the Internet. Think about what it will mean for the world when those devices are the subject of attack.” Then he made his pitch. “The world needs a new, digital Geneva Convention.”
Andy Greenberg, Sandworm: A New Era of Cyberwar and the Hunt for the Kremlin's Most Dangerous Hackers

“Lead with context, not control,” and coaching your employees using such guidelines as, “Don’t seek to please your boss.”
Reed Hastings, No Rules Rules: Netflix and the Culture of Reinvention

Brad Stone
“We all know that if you swing for the fences, you’re going to strike out a lot, but you’re also going to hit some home runs. The difference between baseball and business, however, is that baseball has a truncated outcome distribution. When you swing, no matter how well you connect with the ball, the most runs you can get is four. In business, every once in a while, when you step up to the plate, you can score 1,000 runs. This long-tailed distribution of returns is why it’s important to be bold.”
Brad Stone, Amazon Unbound: Jeff Bezos and the Invention of a Global Empire

Hank Green
“You are a story that you tell yourself, and even if it is not always accurate, it is who you are, and that is very important to you.”
Hank Green, A Beautifully Foolish Endeavor
