“When applying for a job, only two things really matter: What you know (your skill set) and who you are (your integrity).  Pretending to know things you don’t is a waste of your time because you will soon be found out.” -Mark Ford

“The one thing I wish I had known in my 20’s…. EVERYTHING you think is important and meaningful has absolutely no bearing on your future life….   So the only thing I can with full integrity say I wish I had known is: nothing at all matters….  The main skill I got between my 20’s and now is that I bounce back from bad things faster….  Now I bounce back from bad things faster.  It’s freeing.  I go all out every day.  I throw myself into everything.  I cut what doesn’t work and I ignore the rules that keep me from doing what I know is possible.  And when I do everything works better for me.” -James Altucher

“How to increase your wealth one decimal point at a time:  Develop a financially valuable skill.  A financially valuable skill is a skill that will help you climb the wealth ladder one step at a time.  It is a skill that will put you in the mix whenever the opportunity to acquire wealth appears.

There are not many financially valuable skills.  In fact, there are basically only four: marketing, selling, coming up with profitable ideas, and managing profits.” -Mark Ford

“If I had to choose one skill as being most important in achieving success in life, I would say it is the skill of developing successful habits….  It really comes down to grit.  You can form any positive habit you want, so long as you have realistic expectations, plan your days accordingly, and stay determined to make it happen.” -Mark Ford
