The secret of getting ahead is getting started
If you don't pay appropriate attention to what has your attention, it will take more of your attention than it deserves.
The secret of getting ahead is getting started. The secret of getting started is breaking your complex overwhelming tasks into small manageable tasks, and starting on the first one.
The wisdom of life consists in the elimination of non-essentials.
Things may come to those who wait, but only the things left by those who hustle.

Make everything as simple as possible, but not simpler.
Imagination is more important than knowledge.
Not everything that is faced can be changed. But nothing can be changed until it is faced.
Don't underestimate the value of Doing Nothing, of just going along, listening to all the things you can't hear, and not bothering.
