Tools of Titans: Read This First-How to Use This Book

You see the title of this section. You read the title of this section. But truly, for the love of Pete, read this section first because you learn how to use this book. You learn how to change your mindset and alter your approach so you can get the most out of this monstrous book (600+ pages).

A few vital items that stuck out to me in this section:

  1. “If you have a 10-year plan of how to get [somewhere], you should ask: Why can’t you do this in 6 months?”
  2. “…while the world is a gold mine, you need to go digging in other people’s heads to unearth riches.”
  3. It’s the small things, done consistently, that are the big things.
  4. “…this book has been deliberately constructed to maximize your retention.”

The final takeaway from Tim here, our send off, is narrowed down to 3 tools. I will list them here but read the book to get the most out of these words from Siddhartha by Hermann Hesse:

I can think, I can wait, I can fast.
