“Decision-making is difficult because, by its nature, it involves uncertainty.  If there was no uncertainty, decisions would be easy.” -Daniel Levitin

“People love simple and preposterous lies. They much prefer them to the truth.  Truth is elusive.  Difficult to discover.  Infinitely nuanced.  Hard to hold on to.  Each tiny bit of truth comes at a high price….  Nor does truth make you feel good. Like a magnifying mirror, it shows blemishes.  You squirm in your seat when you see it.  Often, you want to turn off the lights. 

Not so with myth.  It comes right over to you, fawns over you, airbrushes your photo, and Botoxes your face.  It flatters you with weak light and strong angles.  It pretends you are the noble master and it is merely the humble slave… willing to do your bidding.” -Bill Bonner

  3. Making sure they get paid even if their customers lose money.”

-Mark Ford

“This may be the most important thing to understand about generating extra income: Getting started is the only difficult part. The rest is a relative piece of cake.” –Mark Ford

“The most difficult thing is the decision to act, the rest is merely tenacity.” –Amelia Earhart
