Thought for the Week

The person who wins the Nobel Prize in biology is not the person who read the most journal articles and took the most notes on them. It’s the person who knew what to look for. Cultivating that capacity to seek what’s significant, always willing to question whether you’re on the right track, that’s what education is going to be about, whether it’s using computers and internet, or pencil and paper and books.”

Books are more likely to change minds than conversations. There is too much happening internally during conversation: Did that sound stupid? What do they think of me? Will I lose the friendship over this opinion? Books can let you chew on an idea without social risk.

Lessons are repeated until they are learned. A lesson l be presented to you in various forms until you have learned it. When you have learned it, you can go on to the next lesson. Learning lessons does not end. There’s no part of life that doesn’t contain its lessons. If you’re alive, that means there are still lessons to be learned.

Two simple rules that make saying yes harder and saying no easier:
1. Don’t say yes on the spot.
2. When you do say yes to something, schedule when you’re going to do it in your calendar right away. Book twice as much time as you think it will take to do it right. Both rules are helpful, but the
second rule is perhaps more important. Scheduling the work helps you realize that saying yes has a very real cost. By scheduling double the time, you’ll avoid overcommitting and have the flexibility to take advantage of opportunities that arise.
