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:
