“Escape competition through authenticity.”

---

“All the benefits in life come from compound interest — money, relationships, habits — anything of importance.”

---

"The compound interest from many quick small iterations is greater than the compound interest from a few slow big iterations. Compound interest operates in most intellectual and social domains."

---

"Seek wealth, not money or status. Wealth is having assets that earn while you sleep. Money is how we transfer time and wealth. Status is your place in the social hierarchy."

---

"The reality is life is a single-player game. You’re born alone. You’re going to die alone. All of your interpretations are alone. All your memories are alone. You’re gone in three generations and nobody cares. Before you showed up, nobody cared. It’s all single-player."

---

"Become the best in the world at what you do. Keep redefining what you do until this is true."

---

"You will get rich by giving society what it wants but does not yet know how to get. At scale."

---

"The internet is the best school ever created. The best peers are on the Internet. The best books are on the Internet. The best teachers are on the Internet. The tools for learning are abundant. It’s the desire to learn that’s scarce."

    @seunoyebode - I love these too Seun. Naval is very authentic and wise. I like him over James Clear or Tim Ferris any day. I heard a bunch of these on his podcast and wanted to write them down like you did.... so thank you for this.

    I don't know how I feel about this one though... Maybe if I hear the context better... I am of the belief that everything is about others, your impact, your role, your legacy...

      @keni Yeah, The context is, understand life is a single player game instead of acting with the "herd". Some wait on others or external motivation to get their dreams done. They are the audience of the quote.

      @seunoyebode - See - now that makes sense. I am actually writing a post about that titled - "Sheep".
      Thanks for explaining.
