When my face started changing after 25, I suddenly started being able to read it.

How to Be Productive - The Mindmap of 35 Habits of the Uber-Productive.
Since the beginning of the year I lived in 7 different countries, spend 3 months in a remote village, and ended up in another mega city. If you want to travel and get work done at the same time, you have to be more productive. Here is the summary of a year of my experimenting with productivity in one mindmap.

Startup is Growth.
A company that grows at 1% a week will grow 1.7x a year, whereas a company that grows at 5% a week will grow 12.6x.

A startup that grows at 5% a week will in 4 years be making $25 million a month.
