I only meet people playing ping pong, playing poker, playing backgammon. I have a meeting scheduled for later today playing both ping pong and chess with a guy I do deals with. We're not going to meet in his office. He thinks he's going to beat me in chess, where he's wrong. And I think I'm going to beat him in ping pong and I hope I'm right. But he thinks I'm wrong. If I say, Let's meet down the street at the ping pong place.' Then we're playing ping pong and, like, Hey, how's the business doing?' He's going to tell me everything.feedback

I'm not saying you shouldn't need any money or you shouldn't do things that make money. I'm just saying, manage your expectations, be creative and be healthy, and I bet you – I know for me – I have a much greater chance of experiencing freedom and huge amounts of well-being during the day.feedback

I said, Lisa I have not used that college diploma in the past thirty years. Just throw it out! It's the most useless thing. You can't donate it. It's the most useless thing in the apartment, so just throw it out. I really like to focus on my own creativity. I like the freedom in not having that many things and not having a real place to live, a real address, because I think it makes me feel more creative.feedback

We still don't really know why [Donald Trump] won. I've seen probably 20 different opinions, on both sides, of why he won.

There's not much in the news that's going to change your life.feedback

Right now, 48 percent of jobs held by recent college graduates are jobs where you don't even need a college degree. It's unclear who the college degree is helping. What if you had taken those four years, spent a year traveling around – which is probably less than a year's worth of college – another year taking free or cheap online courses, and then started trying out different jobs based on what your interests were?feedback

Failure really sucks. When you fail it's not like you say, OK, I failed now. I'm here at the bottom.' There's no bottom. It feels infinite. It feels like it's never going to end. It's just going to get worse and worse.feedback
