Intuition makes us look at
unrelated facts and then think
about them until they can all
be brought under one law. . . .
Intuition is the father of new
knowledge, while empiricism is
nothing but an accumulation of
old knowledge. Intuition,
not intellect, is
the “open sesame” of yourself.
Don’t try to figure out what other
people want to hear from you;
figure out what you have to say.
It’s the one and only thing
you have to offer.
I hate to write.
I love having written.
The big kahuna in content marketing is the book.
—Michael Bungay Stanier,
“Exactly how I self-published my book, sold 180,000 copies, and nearly doubled my revenue”
I am always chilled and astonished
by the would-be writers who ask
me for advice and admit,
quite blithely, that they “don’t have
time to read.” This is like a guy
starting up Mount Everest saying
that he didn’t have time to buy
any rope or pitons.
