Book cover for Deep Work: Rules for Focused Success in a Distracted World
Though Grant’s productivity depends on many factors, there’s one idea in particular that seems central to his method: the batching of hard but important intellectual work into long, uninterrupted stretches.

I have seen this done by many good software developers and some researchers.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
“For every minute you are angry you lose sixty seconds of happiness.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson

H. Jackson Brown Jr.
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”
H. Jackson Brown Jr., P.S. I Love You

Charles Bukowski
“For those who believe in God, most of the big questions are answered. But for those of us who can't readily accept the God formula, the big answers don't remain stone-written. We adjust to new conditions and discoveries. We are pliable. Love need not be a command nor faith a dictum. I am my own god. We are here to unlearn the teachings of the church, state, and our educational system. We are here to drink beer. We are here to kill war. We are here to laugh at the odds and live our lives so well that Death will tremble to take us.”
Charles Bukowski

Michael Crichton
“Do you know what we call opinion in the absence of evidence? We call it prejudice.”
Michael Crichton, State of Fear

Mahatma Gandhi
“Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.”
Mahatma Gandhi
