High minimum, not a high maximum

Thursday, July 23, 2020 02:31 AM

A person’s success in life is determined by having a high minimum, not a high maximum. If you can do something really well but there are other things at which you’re failing, the latter will hold you back. But if almost everything you do is up there, then you’ve got a good life. And so I try to learn how to get through things that others find unpleasant. - Donald Knuth from The Computer Scientist Who Can’t Stop Telling Stories

I am not what you think I am. You are what you think I am. Your thoughts create your world not mine.


In your mind, I am you. You have created a version of me inside your mind. Thus you are what you think I am.


I am you, and you are me.

Look, winning and losing can’t be quantified. They are states of mind, and losing happens only when you give up. Seen that way, then, the world can be filled with winners, and there is room for them all. - Jack Welch
