A thread on the things I took from @realDonaldTrump's book "The Art of the Deal" (part one ~100 things)
1/ “I don’t do it for the money. I’ve got enough, much more than ill ever need. I do it to do it. Deals are my art form.”
2/ “Most people are surprised by the way I work. I play it very loose. I don’t carry a briefcase. I try not to schedule too many meetings. I leave my door open. You can’t be imaginative or entrepreneurial if you’ve got too much structure”
This is a short and interesting read by @mich261213. Used to be Russia's richest man until he got chucked him in prison for some time. It's about some people he met in his 10 years in prison. I shall post some thoughts tomorrow
1/ Khodorkovsky (Ходорковский) on the folk he met in Russian prisons, he writes about roughly twenty people.
2/ Mikhail Ходорковский survived prison by relying on the internal discipline his parents taught him. He never allowed himself to think about getting out soon, and kept himself busy by writing letters and prison stories.
A thread on things I took/learnt from @RayDalio's book "Principles" (~150 things)
1- Line 2 of book - “I’m a ‘dumb shit’ who doesn’t know much relative to what I need to know. Whatever success ive had in life has had more to do with my knowing how to deal with my not knowing anything I know”
2- “The most important thing I learned is an approach to life based on principles that help me find out whats true and what to do about it”
