"Those things that motivate people are often the exact opposite of what makes them effective and successful politically."
~ Robb Willer
"When you desire meaning, when you want things to line up, you see patterns everywhere. Order makes it easier to be a person, to navigate this sloppy world. You're born looking for clusters where chance events have built up like sand into dunes. Picking out clusters of coincidence is a predictable malfunction of a normal human mind." ~ David McRaney, from You Are Not So Smart
"The problem isn't that you are a bad manager of your time, you are a bad tactician in the war inside your brain."
~ David McRaney
