Advice https://patrickcollison.com/advice http://blog.samaltman.com/the-days-are-long-but-the-decades-are-short Productivity http://blog.samaltman.com/productivity My system has three key pillars: “Make sure to get the important shit done”, “Don’t waste time on stupid shit”, and “make a lot of lists”.
