Okay, there’s all this self-dev out in the ether known as the Internet. It comes from different sources, across different mediums, on all different topics. If you want it, you can find it. Then via a pair of headphones, a 4G network, or piped through on rainbows for all I know, you can download that knowledge for yourself.
Pretty fantastic, I think.
Some people aren’t fan of self-dev or self help. They say, “Why do I need to improve? Why can’t I just be happy with who I am?” I don’t have an answer, nor an argument. I don’t want to make a case for why I spend time listening to better and smarter thinkers than me.
I will say though, everyday we’re granted more and more access to the brilliant minds of movers and shakers, who’ve struggled past greater adversity than us. It just seems like a huge waste not to take advantage of this.
Couple notes about what you’ll find in here:
Sometimes I’ll try transcribing an interview. Or at least sampling some quotes that stuck with me. These quotes are paraphrased. I don’t always get them word perfect. However, I do try to always frame it in the proper context in which the speaker implied. Please feel free to use these notes as that — notes — but if you need word perfect quotes, refer to the source material.
Bolding will always be mine.
My notes, in italics or bold, beneath a quote, may not make sense to you. I probably won’t bother to clarify.
