10 life lessons from @naval

By phy6
  1. When looking for a purpose to life, notice that most things are stepping stones, done for ulterior motives.
  2. If you ever want to have peace in your life, you have to move beyond good and evil.
  3. To measure the quality of your life, simply do nothing, and see how it feels.
  4. No one can compete with you on being you. Most of life is a search for who and what needs you the most.
  5. Living a life of integrity pays off, but it takes a very long time.
  6. Three things in life: your health, your mission, and the people you love. That’s it.
  7. Play iterated games. All the returns in life, whether in wealth, relationships, or knowledge, come from compound interest.
  8. Religion, science, and spirituality help us make sense of the world. Life without at least one of them is a lonely and confusing place.
  9. Life is a single-player game.
  10. You can get almost anything you want out of life, as long as it’s one thing and you want it far more than anything else.

Bonus: Of all the cards you can pick in the game of life, choose intelligence and drive. You can trade those two for almost anything else.
