Spend time doing things that matters

Seth Godin:

Here’s something to consider: the world doesn’t get better when you spend more time engaging with mass media. That’s pretty clear. But it does get better when you spend more time doing things that matter. Actions matter.

Technology is everything that doesn’t work yet

Naval:

(…) technology is everything that doesn’t work yet. Technology is around us everywhere. The spoon was technology once; fire was technology once. When we figured out how to make them work, they disappeared in the background and became part of our everyday lives. Technology is, by definition, the intellectual frontier. It’s taking things from science and culture that we have not figured out how to mass produce or create efficiently and figuring out how to commercialize it and make it available to everybody. Technology will always be a great field where you can pick up specific knowledge that is valuable to society.

Two Core Abilities for Thriving in the New Economy

I read Deep Work by Cal Newport on 2017. I found this quote rereading my notes:

Two Core Abilities for Thriving in the New Economy

  1. The ability to quickly master hard things.
  2. The ability to produce at an elite level, in terms of both quality and speed.

-- Cal Newport, Deep Work. (p. 42)
