Book cover for Decisive: How to Make Better Choices in Life and Work
When you can articulate someone’s point of view better than they can, it’s de facto proof that you are really listening.
Charles T. Munger
“In my whole life, I have known no wise people (over a broad subject matter area) who didn't read all the time -- none, zero. You'd be amazed at how much Warren reads--and at how much I read. My children laugh at me. They think I'm a book with a couple of legs sticking out.”
Charles T. Munger, Poor Charlie's Almanack: The Wit and Wisdom of Charles T. Munger

Andrew S. Grove
“Remember that by saying “yes”—to projects, a course of action, or whatever—you are implicitly saying “no” to something else.”
Andrew S. Grove, High Output Management

Ta-Nehisi Coates
“These were notes on how to write, and thus notes on how to think.”
Ta-Nehisi Coates, Between the World and Me

Leo Tolstoy
“No one is satisfied with his fortune,and everyone is satisfied with his wit.”
Leo Tolstoy, Anna Karenina

Andrew S. Grove
“[..] in the work of the soft professions, it becomes very difficult to distinguish between output and activity. And as noted, stressing output is the key to improving productivity, while looking to increase activity can result in just the opposite.”
Andrew S. Grove, High Output Management
