💬 2 inspirational quotes to live by (by Derek Sivers)
Don't be a donkey. - Derek Sivers
You can do almost anything you want in life, just not all simultaneously.
This story is about a donkey who is very thirsty and hungry at the same time. There is water on one side and hay on the other. The donkey cannot think sequentially and long term. He wants the water AND the hay. In the end, the donkey dies - thirsty and hungry.
Most people overestimate what they can do in one year and underestimate what they can do in ten years.
Think long-term. Don't be a donkey.
If more information were the answer we'd all be billionaires with six-pack abs. - Derek Sivers
Just reading, watching, and listening more isn't enough.
When we look at successful people, we often think they have a secret recipe that got them where they are. Looking closer, we see that the difference is that extraordinary people can make themselves take action, compared to the average person.
