    :: INTELLIGENCE

     

    The only shortcut to success is being intelligent enough to see what doesn’t matter and only spending time on what does.

    There’s no better use of time that the hard thinking to discover an undertaking that is truly worthy of your time.

    -------------------------------------------

    .

    Knowledge is the raw series of facts and intelligence the interpretation of how they inter-relate.

    .

    -------------------------------------------

    .

    Knowledgeable people are collectors, they collect a long series of bits of knowledge without any understanding of how those bits work together. Intelligence is the deeper understanding of inter-connection.

    .

    -------------------------------------------

    .

    Stop distracting yourself from the thinking.

    The most important thing to do is to figure out what is the most important thing to do.

    .

    The man who thinks himself a fool has already started to become wise.

    Outright fools always think themselves wise, regardless of the dismal results they obtain.

    :: SPIRITUALITY

    1. There is the YOU which is experiencing.

    2. Then there is the YOU which is observing you experiencing.

    Spirituality is the process in which you slowly identify more with the sense of self that is "watching" rather than one "doing". Spirituality is just watching yourself.

    .

    A person too LOUD on the outside
    = a conversation is being avoided on the inside.

    A person too QUIET on the outside
    = a conversation is raging on the inside.

    .

    -------------------------------------------

    .

    With each moment of shame that you experience,
    you take another step of growth toward greater emotional maturity.

    Your heart grows stronger after any instance in which feel like you let yourself down.

    The young scientist will work hard to ANSWER THE QUESTION.
    The old scientist will work hard to QUESTION THE ANSWER.
    Then a philosopher comes along to QUESTION THE QUESTION.

    Introversion is simply an observation of self.
    Extroverts are the simpletons.

    When you draw a tree, it is not the tree itself.
    When you have an idea of the truth, it is not the actual truth.
    Just as you can’t look directly at the sun,
    Your mind cannot directly appreciate the truth entirely,
    you may know the hint of it, an aura of truth, its radiance.

    :: CREATIVITY

     

    It’s the emptiness of a drum that offers the sound.
    It’s the hollowness of a flute that allows the melody.
    And so it’s always a vacant mind that extracts the answer.

    :: PURPOSE

    • Biting your tongue gives you peace.

    • Speaking your tongue gives you dignity.

    A hero chooses dignity over peace.

    :: SUCCESS

     

    The reason why success evades most people is because they spend a major amount of time on really minor outcomes.

    :: NATURE

     

    When you look deeply into Nature, there is an Intelligence staring back at you.  That’s the God I believe in.

    :: MUSIC

     

    All art reaches toward God, only music touches.

    :: PEOPLE

     

    You have a choice:

    1. to be liked by everyone

    2. to have self-respect

    It’s one or the other.

    :: FAILURE

     

    Success relies on you being honest with yourself.
    Failure relies on you continually lying to yourself.

    Opponents won’t ever fool you even half as much as you fool yourself.

    :: BUSINESS

     

    Entrepreneurship rests on your level of intelligence being sufficient enough so that you may quickly recognise failure and move on to the next idea.

    :: PLAYFULNESS

     

    Most blessed is one who knows the treasure of everyday life:  the beauty in the smallest things.

    :: FOCUS

     

    The hard part is figuring out what is truly meaningful to you.
    The next hardest, the belief in yourself to become better than others at it.
    Once you’ve done that, rule out everything else except your chosen goal.
    Don’t listen to others when they call you “obsessed”.
    Finally, realize that the easiest way to persist is to make the process fun.
