On the value of ideas
There must be a threshold for the number of self-help books one can read in their lifetime. (Kenta Nagamine, Twitter)
Fragments from imaginary dialogues
“So many books, so little time.“
“Think in terms of ideas, not books. If you get one valuable idea from a book, that’s the value of that book for you. Moreover, you can get ideas from sources other than books. An idea has value regardless of where it came from.
Self-help ideas have value only in implementation. It doesn’t matter how many ideas you absorb, but how many you implement in your own life – and how many you teach others how to implement.“
