Tribe Of Mentors ​

Tim Ferris Book — Tribe Of Mentor

Tim ferris statement on cook applies exactly to life- you Make an accomplishment — then you completely move on for another one- you don’t stick around. To the same goals. Even if you fail you move on.

“But the wonderful thing about cooking is that it’s a pretty quick
 process, really, and it doesn’t allow for much time to get attached to the
 results. So whether a dish stinks or turns out beautifully, you have to start
 over from scratch again the next day.”

“You don’t get a chance to sit around and wallow (or toot your own
 horn). The important thing is to learn from each failure and try not to repeat
 it.”

“In the last five
 years, what new belief, behavior, or habit has most improved your life?

I’ve always been a gym person and an early morning person. But a few
 years ago I got invited to train with T. R. Goodman at a place called Pro Camp.
 There’s a “system,” yeah, but basically what we do (and it’s definitely a group
 thing, with three or four of us training together) is just work hard. I hate it
 but it’s great. T. R. says, as we’re leaving after working out, “Nothing you face today will be harder
 than what you just did.

“When you feel
 overwhelmed or unfocused, what do you do?

I have a friend at the gym who knew Jack LaLanne (Google him if the name
 is unfamiliar). Jack used to say it’s okay to take a day off from working out.
 But on that day, you’re not allowed to eat. That’s the short way of saying
 you’re not really allowed to get unfocused. Take a vacation. Gather yourself.
 But know that the only reason you’re here on this planet is to follow your star
 and do what the Muse tells you. It’s amazing how a good day’s work will get you
 right back to feeling like yourself.”

“The quote I’d put on that billboard belongs
 to my friend and former Navy SEAL, Richard Machowicz:

“Not Dead, Can’t
 Quit.”

Debbie Millman

“My billboard would say this: “Busy
 is a decision.” Here’s why: Of the many, many excuses people use to rationalize
 why they can’t do something, the excuse “I am too busy” is not only the most
 inauthentic, it is also the laziest.”

Debbie Millman- on finding jobs

“Am I spending enough
 time on looking for, finding, and working toward winning a great job?

Am I constantly
 refining and improving my skills? What can I continue to get better and more
 competitive at?

Do I believe that I
 am working harder than everyone else? If not, what else can I be doing?

What are the people
 who are competing with me doing that I am not doing?

Am I doing everything
 I can — every single day — to stay in “career shape”? If not, what else should I be
 doing?”

“Desire is a contract
 that you make with yourself to be unhappy until you get what you want”

 Esteem

“Don’t do things that you know
 are morally wrong. Not because someone is watching, but because you are.
 Self-esteem is just the reputation that you have with yourself. You’ll always
 know.”
