3 Types Of People In The World; Which Type Are You?

When I lived on a farm with the Amish, I learned that there are three kinds of people in the world.

1. People who make things happen
2. People who watch things happen
3. People who wonder what happened

Most people are the third type. They wonder what happened.

People are often confused and end up wasting their time. At a minimum, you waste at least a decade of your life. You need to cut the learning curve.

Strive to be the first type. It’s okay to watch things happen because you can learn from watching, but you don’t want to be the one that wonders what happened.

I would add a fourth type of person. These are people that act or observe, but they are never patient enough to reap the benefits.

You can decide to make changes in your life, but remember it takes time and patience to see big results.

Inside The Mind Of Elon Musk; My Interview With Ashlee Vance

I just interviewed Ashlee Vance about his book, “Elon Musk: Tesla, SpaceX, and the Quest for a Fantastic Future.”

He has spent over 40 hours talking with Elon and interviewed close to 300 people for his book.

Elon is someone that personifies what people want in their own lives. He is willing to give up everything he has for something he believes in.

75% of people at one point in their lives will dream of starting something. The percentage of people that actually try is lower than that, and the amount of people that succeed is even lower.

Elon is the first person to run three companies that are worth over a billion dollars. He is also tied for the 100th richest man in the world.

From a rough upbringing in South Africa to becoming arguably one of the greatest business minds of our generation, his story resonates with anyone trying to become a successful entrepreneur.

Life Lessons From A Chess Game; With Nazgol Gharai From “Made In Chelsea”

Playing on this new giant chess board with my friend Naz.

She thinks she can beat me, haha.

If you don’t know who she is, she’s on a show in England called “Made In Chelsea.” You should definitely check it out.

I used to say that life was like a big game of chess.

But I learned that life is more like a game of speed chess. Regular chess is already hard enough, but adding a time element changes the whole game.

Life isn’t short. It is only short if you don’t know how to use it. Like in the game of chess, each piece is a specific tool that you have at your disposal.

Make sure to learn how to use these tools to your advantage before your time is up.

Who do you think will win?

Stay tuned.
