Tribe of Mentors – Timothy Ferriss


What you seek is seeking you



“What would this look like if it were easy? is such a lovely and deceptively leveraged question. It’s easy to convince yourself that things need to be hard, that if you’re not redlining, you’re not trying hard enough. This leads us to look for paths of most resistance, often creating unnecessary hardship in the process.
But what happens if we frame things in terms of elegance instead of strain? Sometimes, we find incredible results with ease instead of stress. Sometimes, we “solve” the problem by completely reframing it.”

“Pain is never out of season if you go shopping for it.”

“The older I get, the more time I spend—as a percentage of each day—on crafting better questions. In my experience, going from 1x to 10x, from 10x to 100x, and from 100x to (when Lady Luck really smiles) 1000x returns in various areas has been a product of better questions”

a problem well put is half-solved

John Dewey

Life punishes the vague wish and rewards the specific ask

“Conscious thinking is largely asking and answering questions in your own head. If you want confusion and heartache, ask vague questions. If you want uncommon clarity and results, ask uncommonly clear questions.”

The stupidity of people comes from having an answer for everything. The wisdom of the novel comes from having a question for everything

Milan Kundera

Good questions in the wrong order get bad responses
