这本书略「鸡汤」，而且比较啰嗦，如果赶时间，可以直接看每章后面的 ‘Big Ideas’。
Willpower is like gas in your car… When you resist something tempting, you use some up. The more you resist, the emptier your tank gets, until you run out of gas. “food for thought.” Foods that elevate blood sugar…, became the fuel of choice for high-achievers - literal proof that “you are what you eat.”
What’s the ONE Thing I can do such that by doing it everything else will be easier or unnecessary ?
成功是一步一步积累来的，像小的多米诺倒下时可以推动大的多米诺一样，是 通过一点一点地积累势能，最终实现计划中的大目标。‘Think big but act small.’ 而不是通过几件不太相关的事情的成绩累加起来获得。
另外一个观点 ‘work life balance is a lie. ’ 也算纠正了我之前对于这个问题的认知。追求 balance 意味着想要把所有的事情都做好，带来的问题是需要给两边分配差不多的时间和精力。而要把一件事情做好，意味着要投入足够多的才可以，所以 balance 导致的结果就是平庸。

Better results generally lead to more enjoyment, and more passion and more time is invested. It can be a virtuous cycle all the way to extraordinary results.
success is about doing the right thing, not about doing everything right.
Sustain the discipline long enough on one habit, and not only does it become easier, but so do other things as well. Habits, on average, take 66 days to form.
养成习惯需要 18 到 254 天，平均为 66 天，我习惯用三个月作为检验标准。

Answers come from questions, and the quality of any answer is directly determined by the quality of the question. Answers come in three categories: doable, stretch, and possibility.
books and published works offer the most in terms of documented research and role models for success. The Internet has quickly become an invaluable tool as well.
I believe that financially wealthy people are those who have enough money coming in without having to work to finance their purpose in life.
