Recent Tweets #4


Here are some of my recent Tweets. My personal favorites are in bold.

  • People think they must show up and perform early. I say No. Take as much time you need to make your impression. Its ok to start life at 30.
  • Look at each stock you own and ask if you’d rather see it rise in price so you can sell (sell now)… or fall so you can buy more (buy now)
  • The soldier who survived mustard gas and pepper spray is now a seasoned veteran. Ever stop to think, and forget to start again?
  • Success is NOT doing ANYTHING you fear (jumping off a building). It’s doing the things you MUST do, but fear most (usually a phone call).
  • Here’s something to think about: Would a self-conscious person know that they’re self-conscious?
  • I’ve come to the sad realization that many people only respond to the one part of your email that they found most interesting.
  • Attention Grabbing: Warren Buffett is the world’s greatest investor. Who’s that guy on the ukulele? That’s an attention grabber.
  • Don’t you just love people with PULSE! People who are Positive, Understanding, Lively, Spontaneous and Expressive.
  • Phy-rum’s Law: When everything that can go right does goes right. (Note that this is often followed by an event following Murphy’s Law).
  • On Systems: A system is only effective if it has a conscience; when you’re people know WHY it’s there, not just how it works.
  • Company founders often do a better job running and guiding the company. There’s more passion, more vision and better leadership.
  • “If you are not willing to risk the usual you will have to settle for the ordinary.” Jim Rohn

  • “Only one man in a thousand is a leader of men — the other 999 follow women” Groucho Marx
  • “String-Goaling”: Setting up a number of intended goals each successive to the prior one. As soon as you complete one the next is set.
  • Call this number if you want a good laugh: 1-401-285-0701
  • Avg American reads <1 book a year. 58% don’t read ANY non-fiction after college! Reading 3 books on any topic makes you expert by default!
  • Expecting the world to treat u fairly cuz u r a good person is like expecting a lion not to attack u cuz u r a vegetarian
  • How successful people (investors, entrepreneurs, Marketers, Speakers, Singers, PUAs, Politicians) become great: They Flip the Status Quo!
  • Magic Words: “Look. I saw things differently but I could be wrong and I often am. I’d like for things to be right. Let us examine the facts”
  • Better to be liked than respected.
  • 150 people is about the largest group of people who can relate intimately with one another. That’s why small business works better than big.
  • Startups give so much attention to plan, but so little to strategic endurance. They give credence to growing, but not much to maintaining it
  • Do you produce more than you consume?
  • Always remember to probe the cemetery of silent evidence. What isn’t can teach us what is. What do your failures teach you about success?
  • The next 10 years of industry will be dominated by most creative value-minded entrepreneurs who know how to turn ideas into great businesses
  • RT @sreardon: If you can watch this 7min motivational video and it doesn’t get you choked up – check yer pulse http://twitzap.com/u/L44
  • “People can’t do somethin’ themselves, they wanna tell you you can’t do it. If you want somethin’, go get it. Period.” #PursuitOfHappyness

  • The Nobel Peace Prize is there to reward the process of giving out Nobel Peace Prizes.
  • Its all in the marketing. Who’s really providing value to who? How can you get people to pay YOU for doing the things you love?

    I like these. I will use some in future blogs of my own (with your permission). One, however, I’m going to have to think about: “Better to be liked than respected.” I’ve worked with several individuals who I respect because of their work ethic, or ability, but I didn’t necessarily like them. In fact, one gentleman I hired because he was outstanding at what he did, and it was a good hire. However, I did not like his lifestyle or beliefs – not someone I would invite over for a coffee. Would love to discuss in person some time.

    After googling the quote (in an effort to find its author) I have resolved myself to saying I disagree. In the short term, it may “appear” better to be liked, but in the long term (hindsight) *respect* is what mattered. Respect must be earned. Taking a liking to something is very superficial. Just my own thoughts.

    Gershon, so we agree it’s better to be “Admired” than Respected. Thanks for all your feedback over the weekend. Gave me what to think about.
