Points to Keep In Mind

  • How happy you are will depend mainly on your relationships
  • Identifying trends and taking advantage of them is the best way start a business
  • The things you worry about rarely happen. The things you don’t worry about tend to happen
  • Keep your friends close and your enemies closer
  • Just because something has been a certain way doesn’t mean that it should continue to be that way
  • You must study history to make money
  • Education and reading will give you insights into how you should deal with other people, according to their specific mindset
  • Bluffing is dangerous. Consider the repercussions, and the possibility that someone will call your bluff
  • The smartest, most successful and richest people in the world all read a ton. If you think that you’re smarter than all of them, then you don’t have to. But you’re not smarter than them
  • Anytime you want to make money, simply be an impressive and curious person
  • If you don’t stand out from the crowd, you will struggle to make money. If you can stand out in a good way, you will always be able to make money
  • Avoid extreme ideologies
  • Understand differences in the way cultures approach things, and take it into consideration
  • Understand the perverse incentives that are in place, that make people incentivised to work toward things that are not ideal outcomes for either you, or the world at large
  • Only borrow money on tested ideas to mitigate risk
  • Every 50 year prediction of the past has been VERY far off, so be very sceptical of those predictions today
  • The nicest people are at the top. The worst people are the people lower down, and trying to elbow their way to the top
  • Because people are born unequal, you will never have 100% equality
  • Money is not the solution to all things, but you must learn how to make money. It’s essential
  • Live an adventurous life if you want to have more energy
