I have this board at home (I work from home) where I recently started writing all my favorite quotes. I’ve made it part of my morning routine. Right before I get to work, I read them over and consider if what I am about to start doing aligns with the quotes on the wall. Here are a few of my faves from the board. Sorry, I never jotted down who said each of these…
“It’s not what you preach, it’s what you tolerate.”
“Your body has no reason to change so long as you’re working within its capacity.”
“If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.”
“One of the things that limit our learning is the belief that we already know something.”
“Truth is like poetry and people hate poetry”
“If it’s not a F*CK YES, it’s a HELL NO.”
“Figure out what is important before you figure out what is next.”
For whatever reason, these mean something to me. Do you you have any favorites of your own? I’d love to hear them. DM on Slack, or simply reply to the email

OG Member Meetups
Looking to connect with the like-minded in your neighbourhood? OG members are hosting events in NYC, Austin, Denver, Atlanta, Seattle and Philly. This month, OG chapters were opened in 3 new cities – we are now at 8000+ members in our meetups!
For all other cities, let the homie @scott know if you need help putting together an event. We are seeing more and more interest in both hosting and attending, and we want to help. In fact, we’ve seen 5 new city channels created this month alone. Get a group together, and go grab some food and drinks one night!

If you folks want to appear above, share your accomplishments with us every Friday. Note the format above. The easier you make it for me to figure out why you are awesome, the more likely it is that you’ll find yourself here.
Each month I try to bring you my favorite articles, books and casts. I am a total information glutton. More inputs than I could possibly action in my lifetime. I don’t recommend this, but it sure makes recommending good reading/listening easy!
I am committed to devouring 2-4 books each month, and reporting back on which made an impact. I will also list books that are absolute essentials. Here’s a few recent and past favorites:
