These are his good things.

Good things to read.

Finite and Infinite Games by James P. Carse.

Antifragile by Nassim Taleb.

Principles by Ray Dalio. (pdf)

All 3 are paradigm shifting reads.

Good things to watch.

Inglorious Bastards (or anything from Tarantino except Kill Bill).

Gary Vaynerchuk’s 2014 Keynote at SXSW – Gets me jacked up everytime. Very insightful as to where industries are going.

Darren Hardy’s Presentation on Super Achievers vs. Over Achievers – Hint: the answer is focus.

Good things to use.

Freedom.to. Block yourself off the internet and social media so you can actually get work done.

Better Touch Tool – Set up keyboard macros. I like to do maximize right screen and maximize left on my 15″ Mac Book Pro so it’s like having a double monitor.

Jumpcut. Saves a list of the last 10 the things you copy/pasted previously so you can go back to them.
