Key quotes and takeaways from the show:

Create a strategy guide for your life. Who are the characters that you love? What do you love about them? How can you use them to inspire you to take action?

It’s time to start living!

It costs Steve around $1,500 per month to live on the road for 18 months, using flyer points, hostels and hotel points. He lived very frugally.

Accept the fact that there’s never going to be enough time to do all the things you want to do. Slow down and actually enjoy the thing you are doing. Don’t robotically work through “tasks” to get to the next thing on the list. Enjoy the “task”. It’s okay to not be totally optimised all the time. Be content with now. Don’t live for tomorrow.

What are the things that must get done? How can you do them really well? Just enjoy all the other things.

“I have around 1,850 weeks left on this planet.”

“I have the entire morning blocked off. I don’t have any meetings scheduled before noon [so] I can focus on deep work […] two to three hours on moving something important forward.”

“My day is around 8am until 4pm, with a workout thrown in.”

“Mornings are for making, afternoons are for managing.”

Who do I want to help and how can I help them?

When you laugh at your own jokes whilst you’re creating, you know they’re good.

Smarter not harder.

Steve’s fund pots: pension (IRA) + Vanguard index fund + emergency fund + “my dog ate it” fund + idiot fund + golf fund + charitable giving fund + wedding fund + house fund + fun investing.

Doing something that sucks, helps you appreciate (or move towards) things that are good in your life. For example,

The way you do anything is the way you do everything.
