New quote that I liked

Added a new quote to my Quotes page on this blog.

I can think. I can wait. I can fast. – Siddhartha

Found this quote in Matt’s Twitter profile via the following Derek’s tweet.

Tim Ferriss’ explanation I found here elaborates this quote well.

Ferriss said that this deceptively simple response is the foundation for all high performers. He explains in “Tools of Titans”:

I can think: Having good rules for decision-making, and having good questions you can ask yourself and others.

“I can wait: Being able to plan long-term, play the long game, and not mis-allocate your resources.

“I can fast: Being able to withstand difficulties and disaster. Training yourself to be uncommonly resilient and have a high pain tolerance.”

“Those are three very, very powerful tools and they’re very flexible,” Ferriss told us.
