There’s a place in France{.populated}__,
Where the naked ladies dance.
There’s a hole in the wall
Where the men watch it all

A poem by Allama Iqbal

This was one of old poems I translated for a college project.


I thought of you when I read this quote from “Tools of Titans: The Tactics, Routines, and Habits of Billionaires, Icons, and World-Class Performers” by Timothy Ferriss, Arnold Schwarzenegger – “‘Come with me into the book business. Because every day, there are underpaid, really smart people in the book business who wake up waiting for the next idea to come across their desk. They’re eager to buy what you have to sell.’ And within two months, she did the 52® activity decks and [ultimately] sold more than 5 million decks of cards.”” Start reading this book for free: https://a.co/fpWUOJZ


I thought of you when I read this quote from “Tools of Titans: The Tactics, Routines, and Habits of Billionaires, Icons, and World-Class Performers” by Timothy Ferriss, Arnold Schwarzenegger – ““People who have trouble coming up with good ideas, if they’re telling you the truth, will tell you they don’t have very many bad ideas. But people who have plenty of good ideas, if they’re telling you the truth, will say they have even more bad ideas. So the goal isn’t to get good ideas; the goal is to get bad ideas. Because once you get enough bad ideas, then some good ones have to show up.”” Start reading this book for free: https://a.co/cTtR5GH


I thought of you when I read this quote from “Tools of Titans: The Tactics, Routines, and Habits of Billionaires, Icons, and World-Class Performers” by Timothy Ferriss, Arnold Schwarzenegger – “On saying “no” and declining things: “The phone rings, and lots of people want a thing. If it doesn’t align with the thing that is your mission, and you say ‘yes,’ now [your mission is] their mission. There’s nothing wrong with being a wandering generality instead of a meaningful specific, but don’t expect to make the change you [hope] to make if that’s what you do.”” Start reading this book for free: https://a.co/2hoKTnN


I thought of you when I read this quote from “Tools of Titans: The Tactics, Routines, and Habits of Billionaires, Icons, and World-Class Performers” by Timothy Ferriss, Arnold Schwarzenegger – “What do you wish you had known about business 20 years ago? “If you go back 20 or 25 years, I wish I would have known that there was no need to wait. I went to college. I went to law school. I worked in law and banking, though not for terribly long. But not until I started PayPal did I fully realize that you don’t have to wait to start something. So if you’re planning to do something with your life, if you have a 10-year plan of how to get there, you should ask: Why can’t you do this in 6 months? Sometimes, you have to actually go through the complex, 10-year trajectory. But it’s at least worth asking whether that’s the story you’re telling yourself, or whether that’s the reality.”” Start reading this book for free: https://a.co/ho98A8m


I thought of you when I read this quote from “Tools of Titans: The Tactics, Routines, and Habits of Billionaires, Icons, and World-Class Performers” by Timothy Ferriss, Arnold Schwarzenegger – “Reid Seeks a Single Reason for a Potentially Expensive Action—Not a Blended Reason “For example, we were once discussing whether it’d make sense for him to travel to China. There was the LinkedIn expansion activity in China, some fun intellectual events happening, the launch of The Start-Up of You [Reid’s book] in Chinese. [There were] a variety of possible good reasons to go, but none justified a trip in and of itself. He said, ‘There needs to be one decisive reason, and then the worthiness of the trip needs to be measured against that one reason. If I go, then we can backfill into the schedule all the other secondary activities. But if I go for a blended reason, I’ll almost surely come back and feel like it was a waste of time.’ ”” Start reading this book for free: https://a.co/7sPsHhJ


I thought of you when I read this quote from “Tools of Titans: The Tactics, Routines, and Habits of Billionaires, Icons, and World-Class Performers” by Timothy Ferriss, Arnold Schwarzenegger – “Reid’s First Principle Is Speed “We agreed I was going to make judgment calls on a range of issues on his behalf without checking with him. He told me, ‘In order to move fast, I expect you’ll make some foot faults. I’m okay with an error rate of 10 to 20%—times when I would have made a different decision in a given situation—if it means you can move fast.’” Start reading this book for free: https://a.co/8aUF82G
