If you look at the great artist, look at the great business-builders, look at the great scientists, these people blocked out all escape hatches that would allow them to getting caught up in the thick of thin things and the trivialities that so many people are attracted to.
And I want you to close them down and I want to start thinking about going minimalist. Do few things really well. Zuckerberg his hoodie, Steve Jobs’ turtlenecks so many creative superstars, what do they do?
