Some thoughts that I have had over the past month :
  • Find motivation where it doesn't exist
  • Take things step-by-step: nothing is that overwhelming
  • People struggle greatly for things that you might take for granted - so appreciate what you take for granted
  • Take things slowly and thoughtfully -- what ever action you do make sure to enjoy it
  • Sacrifice the small (easy) for the large (hard)
  • Visualize - mind is the most rapid prototyping language
  • Always think - "How can I make this better?", "How can I make this more efficient?", "...more useful?" - do this for everything you encounter (that's what Don Knuth does!)
  • Be mindful of what you eat, instead of trying to lose weight (from Paths to God: Living the Bhagavad Gita)
