Adam Robinson (@IamAdamRobinson) is a rated chess master, created the Princeton Review and a macro advisor to some of the most successful hedge funds. I recently listened to his Q&A with Tim Ferris (@TFerriss) in which he cited four quotes that he would put on a billboard if he had the chance. You can find the transcript and the podcast by clicking here.
Here are the quotes for your reflection.
Rudyard Kipling. “If you did not get what you want, it’s a sign either that you did not seriously want it or you tried to bargain over the price.”
The second quote is Amelia Earhart’s: “The most difficult thing is the decision to act. The rest is merely tenacity.”
The third is from Adam Robinson himself “If you’re not getting the results you want, change what you’re doing.”
And, the fourth is from Adam too "If you experience any negative emotion – doubt, fear, frustration, anger – it’s almost always a sign to redirect your attention either to the task at hand or to others.”
