This article is brilliant and should be read by all: bookofhook.blogspot.com/2013/03/smart-guy-productivity-pitfalls.html
Then, read these:
Edit: found this gem in the comments:
"The identity recalibration is really the best thing that can happen to you though, IMO. I work with high performers compared to me and that has pushed me to work faster, make better decisions, focus and generally level up. I think a wide swath of the programming world actively seeks to avoid a situation where the identity recalibration is even possible. The others go through that again and again making them better and beter."
I came across your site a few days ago after a friend posted a link to your "What Skills Do You Need to be an Entrepreneur? Only Two" article. While I've read many different blogging sites about similar topics, there was something about your writing that has compelled me to stay on your site and read through dozens of your articles. In fact, of all the sites/blogs I have read, you are the first I have attempted to contact. You seem like a really interesting guy, and you have certainly inspired me.
Anyways, I read in one of your works that you aren't much a fan of small talk (nor am I), so I'll cut straight to my questions:
What are you thoughts on Ayn Rand? Have you read Atlas Shrugged or The Fountainhead? The reason I ask is because a lot of your writing seems to reflect some of the core points of her philosophy, at least on an individual perspective (as portrayed in The Fountainhead). I'm not sure how you feel about her philosophy for a society as a whole, as in Atlas Shrugged.
If you've never read her before, here is a good excerpt of her thoughts on money (to get an idea of what her books are like):http://www.capitalismmagazine.com/economics/money/1826-francisco-s-money-speech.html
I know I have a blog but sometimes I m just too lazy to post or somehow... cant post in my mobile since theres no mobile app YET..(my phones not an Iphone btw its just JAVA runned)
So hopefully I could post more in the future....
My life is getting more complex and better nowadays...
Im less depressed and more confident... socially and Im more of a person now... meaning I kinda know who I am and about my identity(i still have issues hopefully I would tell soon)
Anyway now Im still in school ( blogging during class hours HEHE) we are doing codings right now so making websites and design etc.. pretty easy...
