RE: Personal MBA
I'll say this... once you've read a handful of books on a making money/entrepreneurship/etc subject, you need to forget about reading more books and just start DOING.

I've probably read over 1,000 non-fiction paperbacks/hardcovers. Learned a ton and helped make me who I am today, but dont be a compulsive reader if you're not also taking REAL action. I learned that the hard way.

I underline, circle, highlight, and star important parts of books so when I go back to reread them I can fly through most of them in 10-20 minutes. But I barely read or reread books these days. I'm in the DO ZONE... working my system inside my plan. Don't get bogged down in passive reading and neglect to actively take action. Reading business stuff doesn't make you money, it only helps you to make money.

Quoted for truth. Don't get caught up in analysis paralysis. I have very bad work habits and always procrastinate. If I would just wake up and work for even 2-3 hours every morning, I would be 10x ahead of where I am at right now.

Doing something is better than doing nothing.

One thing that really helps me is to get out of the house and go work somewhere else. It puts me in work mode. When I am home, I have so many distractions and just fuck off. But being at a coffee shop or somewhere just makes me way more likley to get shit done.

The pomodoro technique really helps me a lot as well....when I get off my ass and actually use the damn thing. http://freestylemind.com/pomodoro-technique/

what's the saying, something like, "a good plan violently executed today is better than a perfect plan executed next week" ?

Has anyone attended one of the Rich Dad 2-hour workshops? They're free but come with an upsell.

I've read the book and thought it was a good primer on personal finance and the right mentality, but not sure if hanging out with average middle-aged people in search of the magic bullet to their financial situations might be worth it. I personally wouldn't expect people in the industries that I'm interested in to be in attendance.
