“Success consists of going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm.” — Winston Churchill

If you had to create a single social media post that would get liked by a higher percentage of your followers than anything you’ve ever posted before, what would you post?
Here’s what I’d recommend and how I figured it out.
“Goals are good for planning your progress and systems are good for actually making progress.”
“Be kind. Read more books. Spend time with your family. Crack jokes. Go to the beach. Hug your dog. Tell that special person you love them. These are the things these kids wished they could’ve done more. The rest is details.”
“If you’re trying to win in a negotiation you want to try and find ways to make it so that you are more patient than the other person — that is you have less to lose from letting the negotiation drag out than does the person you’re negotiating with.”
“If you want to send a message it has to be meaningful. It can’t be some half step.”
“No one has all the answers, and pretending you do doesn’t make you look confident, it makes you look a fool.”
“Be aware the next worthy pursuit will probably appear in your periphery, which is why you should be careful of long-term dreams. If you focus too far in front of you, you won’t see the shiny thing out of the corner of your eye.”
“A cluttered desk mentally exhausts you by restricting your ability to focus and limits your brain’s ability to process information.”
“Dialogue reveals assumptions for reevaluation. Debate defends assumptions as truth.”
