Inner Peace

Be not afraid of conflict

Establish systems

Ignore your competitors

Be here now

Communicate the high-order bit

Ask “Why?” recursively

Make due with less

Do not expect perfection

Become a law master

Become a psychology master

Never try to impress

Fuck what other people think

Listen carefully

Hire a psychotherapist

Be very confident

Get it in writing

Be honest and ethical

You are important, whether or not people see it

Always be ready to cut people off permanently

Get rid of undesirable people early

Divorce from the details

See things as they truly are, not how you wish they were

Build your mental map carefully

Evaluate people as electrochemical organisms

Insist on evidence

Savor the meandering journey

It’s realistic to be optimistic

Your dream life is what makes you cry

Take baby steps

Evaluate yourself on improvement, not achievement


To empty your mind, do brain dumps

Capture all thoughts

Develop a mind like water

Put all stuff in your inbox

Separate reference from stuff

Replace “I must” with “I want”

When you realize you’re in a hole, stop digging

Do not deviate from your specialty

Be thyself

Find thyself

Life doesn’t owe you anything

You don’t owe anyone anything

Give yourself permission to be human


If you’re not sure, say so

Do the hard thing

Do the right thing

Get outside your comfort zone

Stretch, but don’t snap

Shoot frequent layups, not the occasional 3-pointer

Be grateful

If a situation is deteriorating, withdraw immediately

Don’t think with your emotions

Think practically, rationally, realistically, and logically

Success requires mental health

Favors do not need to be returned

Pay your way

Accept the power of choice

Drugs are lame

Voodoo is dangerous

Thoughts create emotions

Love thyself

Don’t take life too seriously

You are not responsible for other people’s reactions

Ascribe the best possible meaning to events

Most reactions are a choice

Any meaning you ascribe to an event is your choice

Events have no intrinsic meaning

You are ready to be successful, just the way you are

Master an art form

It’s never too late

Sucking precedes mastery

Do not complain

Forget “should”

Ponder the meaning of life

If you really love someone, tell them

Acknowledge and accept ambiguity

(v.) love

Live in balance

Lead a life that everyone could lead

You are responsible for your own interests

Do work before it’s due

Reject the subpar

Meditate daily

You aren’t your thoughts

The truth is contradictory

Real growth is boring

If you are attracted to someone, don’t settle for friendship

Treat everyone the same

Be minimal
