Strategy 

Ideas:
- Patience is the foundation of strategy.               - Control Your Emotions and Stay Grounded in Reality.                                                                              - Ego is the Enemy.                                                       -  Time is your most precious resource.                 - "Whenever you find yourself in the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect".               - Always ask yourself, " How can I do this twice as big and in half the time?" , to break out of your typical mental habits.

Thinking

Ideas:
- When you can't think big, then think strange.   - Idea creation is muscle, make the habit of creating of idea everyday.                                            -  When you can't think of 10 ideas, think of 20.   -  You only realize what you're thinking once you write.

work

Ideas:
- What creates the best work is uninterrupted focused time on one topic.                                         - Documenting is as good as finishing                   - Being busy and effective are two different things. What you do is more important than how you do it.                                                                 -  Focus on the long-term. Creating a habit of work is more beneficial than a binge and following burn-out.

Relationships

Ideas:
- We attract people like ourselves. If we constantly meet people we don't like, it's time to look inward.                                                                - The way we treat others is a way of seeing how we treat ourselves.                                              - You are the average of the 5 people you spend most of your time with.                                               - Go to bed angry. It's ok to wait for cooler heads to resolve problems.

Learning

Ideas:
- The Standard Pace is for Chumps.                         - Learn Deeply first then Broadly.                             - Measure what you're learning to it's practical applications. If it has little or no impact, your time will be better used elsewhere.                        - Learning from experience should be your last resort. Better to learn from others.                         - Learn Daily, from everyone, and everywhere.

Data Science

Ideas:
- As opposed to school, learn not by theorizing but by doing.
- Jump into projects as soon as possible, don't waste time learning every aspect of a language, you will learn those things as you go.
- Dive deep into a subject rather than jumping around learning the newest language or package. Learn the fundamentals - those never change.
