  • Strategy comes before tactics.
  • Your life is a work in progress.
  • I like to go deep. These aren’t Pinterest quotes.
  • Have a conversation with your reader. Don’t tell them what to do.
  • Send the beta version of the book to people with different ages and backgrounds so you get well-rounded feedback.
  • Writing short passages is harder than writing longer ones.
