Днес използвах цитата, който е посочен по-долу за илюстрация пред момичетата от екипа на Свръхчовекът. Та, в този ред на мисли се сетих за един от най-въздействащите ми моменти, провокирани от книга. Книгата е Tools of Titans на Tim Ferriss. Откъсът казва нещо изключително ценно, а моята препоръка е да се фокусираш върху удебелените моменти:

WHAT MAKES THESE PEOPLE DIFFERENT?

“Judge a man by his questions rather than his answers.”
— Pierre-Marc-Gaston de Lévis

These world-class performers don’t have superpowers.

The rules they’ve crafted for themselves allow the bending of reality to such an extent that it may seem that way, but they’ve learned how to do this, and so can you.

These “rules” are often uncommon habits and bigger questions.

In a surprising number of cases, the power is in the absurd. The more absurd, the more “impossible” the question, the more profound the answers. Take, for instance, a question that serial billionaire Peter Thiel likes to ask himself and others:

“If you have a 10-year plan of how to get [somewhere], you should ask: Why can’t you do this in 6 months?”

For purposes of illustration here, I might reword that to:

“What might you do to accomplish your 10-year goals in the next 6 months, if you had a gun against your head?”

Now, let’s pause. Do I expect you to take 10 seconds to ponder this and then magically accomplish 10 years’ worth of dreams in the next few months? No, I don’t. But I do expect that the question will productively break your mind, like a butterfly shattering a chrysalis to emerge with new capabilities. The “normal” systems you have in place, the social rules you’ve forced upon yourself, the standard frameworks—they don’t work when answering a question like this. You are forced to shed artificial constraints, like shedding a skin, to realize that you had the ability to renegotiate your reality all along. It just takes practice.

My suggestion is that you spend real time with the questions you find most ridiculous in this book. Thirty minutes of stream-of-consciousness journaling (page 224) could change your life.

On top of that, while the world is a gold mine, you need to go digging in other people’s heads to unearth riches. Questions are your pickaxes and competitive advantage. This book will give you an arsenal to choose from.

Спомням си как прочетох тези редове някъде в небето, летейки между София и Хамбург. Спомням си, много отчетливо, как затворих очи и си казах “Егати якия въпрос!” Настръхнах. “Защо да не можеш да постигнеш всичко за много по-кратко време?!” Защо наистина да не мога?!

Няма нужда от много разсъждения. Има нужда да си зададеш този въпрос. Сега, веднага!
