stand-out quotes from past lectures' speakers

We know that 2,500 years ago, the Greek philosopher Plato talked about akrasia, the tendency to act against our better judgement. And if Plato was complaining about people getting distracted and akrasia 2,500 years ago, it cannot be a new problem. It must have been something that plagues the human condition.

Nir Eyal, lecture #1

The reason you want a mission and a motto is because as you are working towards these goals, you have something you can call back to. So when opportunities come your way, you can assess whether it's going to help serve your mission because you've already identified what you want and what kind of compass you need to keep you on track.

Debra Eckerling, lecture #11

Ultimately, the course of our lives are based off of the interpretations of the events that we experience.
Everyone could experience the same exact event, but we would all interpret it in largely different ways, and then based on the actions we take, we go off on our different paths.
