The following recordings are for January 2021:

  1. After all, dreaming is a form of planning.
  2. The secret of change is to focus all of your energy, not on fighting the old, but on building the new.
  3. Making good decisions comes from experience, experience comes from making bad decisions.
  4. Consumer products are about how to occupy people’s time, the more time you occupy, the more money you make. Business products are about how to free up people’s time, the more time you save, the more money you make.

The following recordings are for November 2020:

  1. If you’re always playing it safe, and not failing, there’s a high probability that you’re not doing anything particularly that important.
  2. Failure isn’t the end, failure is actually the beginning.
  3. We must all learn not only to fear change, but to embrace it enthusiastically and, perhaps even more important, encourage and drive it. (T. Hsieh)

The following recordings are for September 2020:

  1. It’s not that we fear the unknown. You cannot fear something that you do not know. Nobody’s afraid of the unknown. What you really fear is the lost of the known.
  2. We never feel grief when we lose something that we allowed to be free; that we have never attempted to possess.
  3. Loneliness is not cured by human company, loneliness is cured by contact with reality.
  4. You only change what you understand. What you do not understand and are not aware of, you repress. You don’t change. But when you understand it, it changes.

The following recordings are for July 2020:

  1. The only true wisdom is knowing when you know nothing.
  2. Ignorance more frequently begets confidence then does knowledge.
  3. Attachment creates anxiety.
  4. Happiness is a state of non-attachment.
  5. The need to win drains us of power. If we don’t need to win we have so much more energy.
  6. Life is something that happens to us when we’re engaged in something else.
  7. All upset exists in you, not in reality.
  8. Something didn’t upset you, you upset yourself on the occasion of something.
  9. Maturity is when you no longer blame anyone. You don’t blame others, you don’t blame yourself. You see what’s wrong, you set about remedying it. That’s one pretty good sign of maturity.
  10. Taking action to remedy a situation is different than taking action to remedy a feeling.
  11. Love is not blaming others, love is not judging others, love is not condemning others, love is understanding.
  12. The world is full of sorrow. The root of sorrow is attachment. The uprooting of sorrow is the dropping of attachment. The understanding that attachment is a false belief. The false belief that anything or any person can make you happy. True happiness is caused by nothing. True happiness is uncaused.
  13. Loneliness is the desperate need for people to the point that you’re unhappy without people.
