Запомните: наш враг – не абстрактное «фиаско», а скука.

Возьмите себе за правило ценить плодотворный труд, а не рабочую нагрузку.

Действие не всегда приносит счастье, но счастья без действия не бывает.

Справиться с нереальной задачей проще, чем с реальной

Практическая ценность денег резко возрастает в зависимости от того, ЧТО вы делаете, КОГДА вы делаете, ГДЕ вы делаете, С КЕМ вы делаете. Эти вопросительные слова я называю «множителями свободы».

Какие 20 % источников создают 80 % моих проблем и неудач?
Какие 20 % ресурсов приносят 80 % желаемых результатов и радостей?

Эксперт – это человек, который совершил все возможные ошибки в очень узкой области.
Нильс Бор (1885–1962), датский физик, лауреат Нобелевской премии 1922 года

Я не могу дать вам точную формулу успеха, зато могу назвать формулу фиаско: постоянно старайтесь угодить всем и каждому.

Не приберегайте все самое лучшее напоследок. Для этого нет никаких причин.

Жизнь теряет смысл в основном в состоянии скуки.

Популярные цитаты Тимоти Ферриса

Вот 2 азбучные истины, которые стоит запомнить:

1. Даже добросовестно выполненное, но пустяковое дело не перестанет быть пустяковым.

2. Если на задачу тратится уйма времени, важности ей это не придает.

Я убедился, что быть «трудным» порой полезно. Как в учебе, так и в жизни репутация человека, умеющего настоять на своем, помогает добиваться особого отношения и избавляет от необходимости всякий раз унижаться до уговоров или открытых конфликтов.

Не путаем ли мы наличие и отсутствие? Например, если, согласно утверждению, вегетарианская диета продлевает жизнь в среднем на 5–15 %, может ли быть так, что жизнь продлевается благодаря обилию овощей в рационе, а не отсутствию мяса? Очень даже может быть.

Избыток жира в организме? Принимай протеин и лимонный сок строго по графику.

Дефицит мышечной массы? Ешь имбирь и квашеную капусту.

Плохо спится? Увеличь потребление насыщенных жиров или сделай воздух в спальне более прохладным.
