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
“[..] 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

Viktor E. Frankl
“Everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of the human freedoms—to choose one’s attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one’s own way.”
Viktor E. Frankl, Man's Search for Meaning

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

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
