What are good quotes from The Power of Starting Something Stupid?

“Opportunities will come and go, but if you do nothing about them, so will you.”

“Gavin's Law: Live to start. Start to live.”

“Your life should consist of more than commuting, working, eating, surfing the Internet, sleeping and watching TV. Your life should be filled with purpose-driven experiences and projects that bring excitement, passion, energy, and authentic meaning and joy into your life.”

“Truly being authentic is knowing what matters to you, on the deepest level of who you are, and committing always to act from that authentic center.”

“To crush fear doesn't mean you eliminate it; crushing fear means you literally crush it down into smaller, more manageable parts and tackle one piece at a time.”

“You can overcome your circumstances or you can let your circumstances overcome you.”

“There is power born of humility . . . Humility, in business and in life, is a powerful asset and does not denote lowliness, unimportance, or self-deprecation.”

“Wouldn't it be amazing if you could travel into the future, see where you messed up, and then go back in time to rearrange things in order to make your future better? You can. If you can foresee regret, you can mind-travel to the future. If you can train yourself to mind-travel effectively, you can intentionally affect your future by doing something about it today.”

“It all starts with a tiny, stupid idea, then one thing leads to another, and suddenly, you find something amazing: yourself.”

“Overcoming procrastination is not, I repeat, not about cramming additional work into your day . . . overcoming procrastination is about simplifying your life to make space for the activities that matter most.”

“Life is too short not to start something stupid.”

“No more tomorrows. Today is the day.”
