Since I have been feeling a tad overwhelmed and overworked lately; now might be the ideal time to reflect on some inspiring quotes from blogger/author/ lifestyle management guru Tim Ferriss. I recently read his much-hyped (in the “blogosphere,” at least) “The Four Hour Workweek,” and, for the most part, found it to be worth much of the hype…

Noteworthy quotes/excerpts:

“The most important actions are never comfortable.”

“Slow down and remember this: Most things make no difference.”

“Lack of time is actually lack of priorities.”

“Being able to quit things that don’t work is integral to being a winner.”

“Focus on being productive instead of busy.”

“Alternating periods of activity and rest is necessary to survive, let alone thrive.”

“What we fear doing most is usually what we most need to do.”

“If you are insecure, guess what? The rest of the world is, too. Do not overestimate the competition and underestimate yourself. You are better than you think.”

“The opposite of love is indifference, and the opposite of happiness is—here’s the clincher—boredom.”

“Learn to ask, “If this is the only thing I accomplish today, will I be satisfied with my day”

“Language learning deserves special mention. It is, bar none, the best thing you can do to hone clear thinking.”
