Hello again! Here are some quotes that I liked in the last week.

"The optimal amount of most "bad" things in life is usually greater than zero. A thread:
A little bit of selfishness is better than none (helps you care for yourself).
A little bit of anxiety is better than none (it shows it matters)
A little bit of self-doubt is definitely better than none." Mark Manson.

"When you say "I'm going to do this", and "I'm going to do that", you're really putting it off. You're giving yourself an out. At least if you're self-aware, you can think, "I say I want to do this, but I don't really because if I really wanted to do it, I would just do it"."
Naval Ravikant.

"A good day starts the night before."
Ali Abdaal.

"Every action you take is a vote for the type of person you wish to become."
James Clear.

"The most important battles must be fought anew each day. Exercising today does not render tomorrow's workout unnecessary. Supporting your spouse today does not mean you can mail it in tomorrow. Learn to love the endless nature of things and life gets easier."
James Clear.

"A strategy for thinking clearly:
Rather than trying to be right, assume you are wrong and try to be less wrong.
Trying to be right has a tendency to devolve into protecting your beliefs.
Trying to be less wrong has a tendency to prompt more questions and intellectual humility."
James Clear.

"I never allow myself to have an opinion on anything that I don't know the other side's argument better than they do."
Charlie Munger.

"The person who carefully designs their daily routine goes further than the person who negotiates with themselves every day. Let inertia work for you."
Shane Parrish.

"90 percent of success is not getting distracted."
Shane Parrish.

"If your expectations grow faster than your income, you'll never be happy with your money no matter how much you accumulate."
Morgan Housel.

"A regret is simply a mistake we haven't grown from yet."
Mark Manson.
