The 200th DPS Daily Productive Sharing 200 - 20210521 shared Kevin Kelly's thoughts on his 69th birthday. Recently KK celebrated his 70th birthday and he shared 103 more thoughts:

  1. About 99% of the time, the right time is right now.
  2. The best work ethic requires a good rest ethic.
  3. When you lead, your real job is to create more leaders, not more followers.
  4. Changing rules can become the new game.
  5. Anything you say before the word “but” does not count.
  6. A wise man said, “Before you speak, let your words pass through three gates. At the first gate, ask yourself, “Is it true?” At the second gate ask, “Is it necessary?” At the third gate ask, “Is it kind?”
  7. Don’t aim for better ways to get through your tasks as quickly as possible, rather aim for better tasks that you never want to stop doing.
  8. Your growth as a conscious being is measured by the number of uncomfortable conversations you are willing to have.
  9. Three things you need: The ability to not give up something till it works, the ability to give up something that does not work, and the trust in other people to help you distinguish between the two.
  10. There is no such thing as being “on time.” You are either late or you are early. Your choice.
  11. The best way to get a correct answer on the internet is to post an obviously wrong answer and wait for someone to correct you.
  12. Half the skill of being educated is learning what you can ignore.
  13. A great way to understand yourself is to seriously reflect on everything you find irritating in others.
  14. What you do on your bad days matters more than what you do on your good days.
  15. To keep young kids behaving on a car road trip, have a bag of their favorite candy and throw a piece out the window each time they misbehave.
  16. When you don’t know how much to pay someone for a particular task, ask them “what would be fair” and their answer usually is.
  17. Your best job will be one that you were unqualified for because it stretches you. In fact only apply to jobs you are unqualified for.
  18. Average returns sustained over an above-average period of time yield extraordinary results. Buy and hold.
  19. When introduced to someone make eye contact and count to 4. You’ll both remember each other.
  20. Dont bother fighting the old; just build the new.
  21. Dont focus on getting into shape. Focus on becoming the kind of person who never misses a workout.
  22. When negotiating, dont aim for a bigger piece of the pie; aim to create a bigger pie.
  23. Remove, give away, throw out things in your life that dont spark joy any longer in order to make room for those that do.
  24. Focus on directions rather than destinations. Who knows their destiny? But maintain the right direction and you’ll arrive at where you want to go.
  25. If you are alive, that means you still have lessons to learn.
  26. Aim to die broke. Give to your beneficiaries before you die; it’s more fun and useful. Spend it all. Your last check should go to the funeral home and it should bounce.

第二百期 DPS Daily Productive Sharing 200 - 20210521 曾经分享了 Kevin Kelly 在69周岁生日时的感悟,最近 KK 度过了他的70周岁生日,他又分享了103条感悟:

  1. 大约99%的情况下,正确的时间就是现在。
  2. 最好的工作态度需要有良好的休息。
  3. 当你领导时,你真正的工作是创造更多的领导者,而不是更多的追随者。
  4. 改变规则可以成为新的游戏。
  5. 你在 "但是 "一词之前说的任何话都不算数。
  6. 一位智者说:"在你说话之前,让你的话通过三道门。在第一道门,问自己:"这是真的吗?" 在第二道门问:"有必要吗?" 在第三道门,问:"它是善意的吗?"
  7. 不要追求更好的方法来尽快完成你的任务,而是要追求永远不想停止的任务。
  8. 你的成长是由你进行的不舒服对话的数量来衡量的。
  9. 你需要的三样东西。不放弃某件事情直到它成功的能力,放弃不起作用的事情的能力,以及对其他人的信任以帮助你区分两者。
  10. 没有所谓的 "准时"。你要么迟到,要么早到。
  11. 在互联网上获得正确答案的最好方法是发布一个明显错误的答案,然后等着别人来纠正你。
  12. 受教育的一半技巧是学习你可以忽视的东西。
  13. 了解自己的一个好方法是认真反思你让别人令人讨厌的一切。
  14. 你在坏日子里做的事比你在好日子里做的事更重要。
  15. 为了让年轻的孩子们在汽车公路旅行中表现良好,可以准备一袋他们最喜欢的糖果。每当他们表现不好时,就向窗外扔一块。
  16. 当你不知道该为某项任务付给某人多少钱时,问问他们 "怎样才算公平",他们的回答通常是这样的。
  17. 你最好的工作将是一份你可能不太能成功的工作,因为它能让你捉襟见肘。事实上,只申请你觉得不能胜任的工作。
  18. 在超过平均水平的时间内持续的平均回报会产生非凡的结果。买入并持有。
  19. 当被介绍给某人时,要有眼神接触并数到4,你们都会记住对方。
  20. 不要费力地与旧事物斗争,只需建立新事物。
  21. 不要把注意力放在塑身上。专注于成为那种从不错过锻炼的人。
  22. 谈判时,不要为了分得更多的蛋糕,而是要创造一个更大的蛋糕。
  23. 移除、放弃、扔掉你生活中那些不再能激发快乐的东西,以便为那些能激发快乐的东西腾出空间。
  24. 专注于方向而不是目的地。谁知道自己的命运?但保持正确的方向,你就会到达你想去的地方。
  25. 如果你还活着,这意味着你仍有教训要学。
  26. 以死后破产为目标。在你死之前给你的受益人;这更有趣,更有用。花光所有的钱。你的最后一张支票应该交给殡仪馆,而且应该跳票。
