Things No One Else Can Teach Us By Humble The Poet

A monotonous self-help book with negligible personal stories that don’t entirely relate to the main ideas.




• “If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.” -African Proverb

• With everything you do, think about how it shapes who you are, and think about how who you are shapes your experience in everything you do.

• The world doesn’t stop for our tragedies; it keeps moving, and we have to keep moving with it. Stop handling your tragedies like a child, and deal with them like an adult. Adult show up for work, children stay in bed.

• Remember: We’re not chasing the goal, we’re chasing the feeling that we think will come from hitting the goal.

• No matter how the events of our lives appear to be at first, let’s take a step back, reserve judgment, and carefully pay attention as things play out.

• “If I can’t afford two, I’m not buying one.”

• Your ultimate leverage is your craft. Stop taking meetings, stop networking, stop trying to cut corners, and get better at what you do. As you get better, your craft will be your leverage, and opportunities will find you. Devote more time to craft and become irreplaceable.

• “I fear not the man who has practiced 10,000 kicks once, but I fear the man who has practiced one kick 10,000 times.” -Bruce Lee

• “You can be the ripest, juiciest peach in the world, and there’s still going to be somebody who hates peaches.” -Dita Von Teese
