Welcome to TANQ.
FASTER TO MASTER‘s library of Thoughts, Anecdotes, Notes and Quotes.
TANQ is a growing central library of thoughts, anecdotes, notes and quotes that I come across during my life and learning. It was originally inspired by Ryan Holiday’s excellent article on “How and Why to Keep a Commonplace Book“.
As time goes by I’ll be developing TANQ to make it easier to explore, filter and share its contents right here on FASTER TO MASTER.
For now, here’s a snapshot from the inside:
Stop pushing so hard on the doorway to happiness. It opens inwards.
“A change imposed is a change opposed.”
“Move with the cheese and enjoy it!”
“The fastest way to change is to laugh at your own folly – then you can let go and quickly move on.”
“Noticing small changes early helps you adapt to the bigger changes that are to come.”
“Motivation requires motive.”
“A person usually has two reasons for doing a thing: one that sounds good and a real one.”
“Criticism is futile because it puts a person on the defensive and usually makes him strive to justify himself. Criticism is dangerous, because it wounds a person’s precious pride, hurts his sense of importance, and arouses resentment.”
“Making your bed every morning is correlated with better productivity, a greater sense of well-being, and stronger skills at sticking with a budget.”
Difficulties come not to obstruct, but to instruct.
