They are on time. On time for work, on time for meetings, on time for the train. They hate wasting their own time, and as a byproduct, anyone else’s.
A great piece of words from Greg Hoy, the CEO of HappyCog Studio.

While the Huffington Post works hard to keep people on the site, the Drudge Report sends them away as quickly as it can. In both cases, people keep coming back. While they are operating on different scales – HuffPo as a multi-million dollar subsidiary of AOL and The Drudge Report as a one-man, home-based operation – both have been able to turn news aggregation and curation into a basis for income and long-term, sustainable businesses.
If you interested in content curation, you might want to read the article.
A millionaire does not have the standing to tell regular people that money is overrated. Graham Hill moved into a smaller apartment and sold some of his stuff. But he sure as fuck didn’t empty his bank accounts. It’s easy not to have material things when you can just buy whatever you need, whenever you need it. “ My space is small. My life is big,” writes Hill. Of course it is! You can buy anything and go anywhere at any time, thanks to your vast wealth! The fact that a millionaire’s “life is big” offers little valuable wisdom to the common person. The presumptuousness is akin to a fat food critic walking out of a restaurant after a huge meal and telling a starving beggar on the curb, “Trust me—you don’t want to eat at this place.”

“So what do we do? We go after the money. We chase it like there’s no tomorrow. And as we do that, we lose time that we could spend having a leisurely dinner or taking a long walk with the love of our life; we lose time we could spend hitting the StairMaster or making a sandwich rather than driving through a fast-food joint for a grease-fest; we lose time we could spend taking classes that might lead us to a career we’d truly enjoy.”
Nicely written. Having more money is nice, but having time to spend with our loved ones is priceless.
Whenever you find yourself with too many tabs, click the OneTab icon to convert all of your tabs into a list. When you need to access the tabs again, you can either restore them individually or all at once.
When your tabs are in the OneTab list, you will save up to 95% of memory because you will have reduced the number of tabs open in Google Chrome.
Highly recommended, if you’re on Chrome like me.

Invest your time in the right actions. When you build a great product investors will contact you, so get to work and stop begging for money. “I can’t start, because I don’t have funding” is the lamest excuse not to change your life ever.

We’ve all heard stories of tycoons who couldn’t be happy, or lottery winners that end up ruined a few years later, wishing it had never happened. I can understand the possibility that having amounts of money that seem copious to you and me might bring certain problems we’re ignorant about. But I still always find myself thinking that these people must be particularly foolish or naive not to be able to make millions of dollars work for them.
Clearly, we need to develop the ‘enough’ mindset.

If I can leave with one piece of advice to young founders. Please think really hard about taking other peoples money. If I had failed using my own money, I could live with it. But having a team of investors believe in you, only to let them down is an incredibly difficult thing to deal with. Try and finance your product yourself for as long as you can. At least until you can realise if your idea is decent (which takes a long time to figure out).

Most people already know how to get/acquire money, but still, most people struggling to manage their money. These blogs really helped me on managing my financial life:

Currently, I’m into the idea of curation. All things should be curated. Why you asked? There’s too many things to read and consume! Plus I’m not going to spend a lot of time on the internet, that would make me missed my wonderful life, which is real life.
My first project with Gaddafi, curaqion, is about curating good and fascinating article on Quora. That went well, for now. Except now we need to provide paid subscription to make sure this project sustained for a long time.
Alright, back to newspaper. Ah newspaper, a medium that has so little good information, many unwanted things, bullsh*t news, celebrity gossips, and of course, advertisements, a lot of it. But we can’t really complain, don’t we? All newspaper is just like that.
So, enter the world of curated content. Imagine a newspaper that provide a useful, insightful news on locals, education, foreign affairs, technology, and sports. However, cramming all that topics would be too ambitious, so maybe we should start with local news first. Paid user will get daily news by email, and normal user can view the content on the website for free.
The updates will commence on the evening. Because I hate people who use their working time to do other things while working.
Great right? But the problem is, we need to update the website each day. Unless we hire a editor, this idea would become useless.
I’m glad that I shared this. Maybe I should do this again, given that I had an idea to share.

Most people take the safe route, because they’re afraid of being different and failing. If you do nothing amazing but you go with the crowd, then you don’t look stupid. But then you miss out on the amazing.
If you never stand out from the crowd, you will always be average. And that’s fine, but the people who stand out are the ones who make a mark, who innovate and discover, who learn the freedom of exploration and invention.

Take all of our digital publishing nuts and springs, bits and bolts and spread them out on the old table. Climb our ladder and look down and ask yourself:
“What can I build for subcompact publishing?”
We need this, perhaps?

You know who you are. You want to do it all and won’t let go of the controls, even for a moment. You want to please everyone and typically put your own needs on the back burner to do so. Perhaps you don’t see enough of your family, or your stress doesn’t allow you to enjoy the time you do have with them.
The key is to find the balance. Enjoy your life while you experiencing your adventurous journey.
