I'm trying to push through a rut — so this post is just for me to keep the writing habit alive. Here are some quotes that I read this week.

"Progress happens too slowly to notice, but setbacks happen too quickly to ignore."
Morgan Housel

"No matter what you do for work, no matter how you live your life, no matter what your stances are — there will be some crowds who respect you for it and others who don't.
If you live true to your values, you'll win the respect of the people you respect. That's all that matters."
Tim Urban

"Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it."
George Santayana

"People will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel."
Maya Angelou

"The positive is attained through the negative:

1. The pain of exercise leads to health.
2. Failures in business lead to wisdom.
3. Openness about insecurities leads to confidence.
4. Honest confrontations lead to trust and respect.
5. Suffering through fear leads to courage."
Mark Manson

"A rational person can find peace by cultivating indifference to things outside of their control."
Naval Ravikant

"You have a responsibility to heal yourself so that you don't unintentionally harm others"
Mark Manson

"It doesn't take much to convince us that we are smart and healthy, but it takes a lot of facts to convince us of the opposite."
Dan Gilbert

"Do the best you can until you know better. Then when you know better, do better."
Maya Angelou

"After coaching a lot of very successful people, here's an unsexy truth:

A lot of success is learning to grind when it's boring.

Staying engaged, working, and seeing it through when it's boring is a skill. If you expect all building to be exciting, you'll never make it."
Dr. Julie Gurner

Thanks for reading. Cheers!
