Pay attention to what you're noticing. That's to
say, when you find yourself noticing something,
look at it again. If something takes your interest,
even if you can't understand why it's important
and even if no one else thinks it is, don't dismiss
it. Trust yourself as an antenna.
U = Brian Eno
Most people's lives are run by desire and fear.
Desire is the need to add something to yourself
in order to be yourself more fully. All fear is the
fear of losing something and thereby becoming
diminished and being less. These two
movements obscure the fact that Being cannot
be given or taken away. Being in its fullness is
already within you, Now.
U = Eckhart Tolle
When people look back upon their lives, she
found, they ask three questions that determine
their sense of whether it was meaningful:
1. Did I give and receive love?
2. Did I become all I can be?
3. Did I leave the planet a little better?

How does Ian Schrager stay hip?
I read probably 40 to 50 magazines a week on

grabs my interest.

Simplicity is about subtracting the
obvious and adding the meaningful.

Discoveries grow out of something that is
already there. Ripe apples had always fallen to
the ground but Isaac Newton saw quot;the deeper
meaning.quot; The Earth has always circled the sun
but Copernicus and Galileo observed the
evidence and make the connections.
Geniuses often build on details that many
people can spot but can't connect.

The best investments for you may be in your
own education, in the quality of the time you
spend with the ones you love, on your own job,
and on books which will open new ideas to you
and let you see things from many different

How to create great events?
Bring interesting people that you want to have
at your dinner table that you are interested in
their story and you can learn from and then
invite other people to listen.

We should be concerned not only for preserving
the biosphere but also the ethnosphere – the
sum total of all thoughts and dreams, myths,
ideas, inspirations, intuitions brought into
being by the human imagination. It is
humanity's great legacy. It's a symbol of all that
we are and all that we can be as an astounding
and inquisitive species.
