23 May 2010 on learning

Very good insight on how to deal with distractors...

Tim Ferriss keynote The Next Web Conference 2010 - Love the Haters

Tim Ferris also wrote the 7 Principles:

  1. It doesn’t matter how many people don’t get it. What matters is how many people do.
  2. 10% of people will find a way to take anything personally. Expect it.
  3. “Trying to get everyone to like you is a sign of mediocrity.” (Colin Powell)
  4. “If you are really effective at what you do, 95% of the things said about you will be negative.” (Scott Boras)
  5. “If you want to improve, be content to be thought foolish and stupid.” (Epictetus)
  6. “Living well is the best revenge.” (George Herbert)
  7. Keep calm and carry on.

Food for real thought, i think!
