“For all of the most important things, the timing always sucks. Waiting for a good time to quit your job? The stars will never align and the traffic lights of life will never all be green at the same time. The universe doesn’t conspire against you, but it doesn’t go out of its way to line up the pins either. Conditions are never perfect. “Someday” is a disease that will take your dreams to the grave with you. Pro and con lists are just as bad. If it’s important to you and you want to do it “eventually,” just do it and correct course along the way.” by Tim Ferris – The 4-hour Workweek
“But you are the average of the five people you associate with most, so do not underestimate the effects of your pessimistic, unambitious, or disorganized friends. If someone isn’t making you stronger, they’re making you weaker.” by Tim Ferris – The 4-hour Workweek
“A person’s success in life can usually be measured by the number of uncomfortable conversations he or she is willing to have.” by Tim Ferris – The 4-hour Workweek
“Life is too short to be small.” by Tim Ferris – The 4-hour Workweek

“$1,000,000 in the bank isn’t the fantasy. The fantasy is the lifestyle of complete freedom it supposedly allows.” by Tim Ferris – The 4-hour Workweek
