- leave your phone in another room while you work (Twitter)


Modern society is defined by an excess of opportunity.

We have more information, more products, and more options than ever before.

As a result, curating, filtering, and refining are more important skills than ever before.

Those who edit best will find the signal in the noise. (Twitter)


Why focus on the process when the world is outcome driven? Don’t results matter?

Yes, results do matter.

But if you optimize for the outcome, you win one time.

If you optimize for a process that leads to great outcomes, you can win again and again. (Twitter)


One of the foundations of learning is having the safety to fail.

Without safety, you can’t afford failure.

If you can’t afford failure, you can’t make mistakes.

Without mistakes, you can’t get the feedback needed to iterate.

Learning requires failure. Failure requires safety. (Twitter)


Challenge yourself when life is easy, so you can handle it when life gets hard. (Twitter)

    @seunoyebode - Seun.... I love every single one of these. I started to copy paste one quote so I could print and stare at it daily... then realized the whole thing is very very good. Bookmarked.

    We need parts of these gems for our joint Project. I am going to refer to it as Project Mafia.
