You seem to consume a lot of information. How do you structure all what you read/think about? Any interesting techniques to share/suggest?
About: "Get things done quickly, efficiently and move on." - means you used to procrastinate instead of moving on in the past?
About: "Don’t do things that don’t create value." - this way you restrict you self from doing what is fun (which is not always a value, in the end). And fun - is a powerful motivator, not to mention that fun helps to avoid a "tunnel vision", helps sometimes to see the problem from different perspective.
About concentrating 100% on the company - sounds like putting all eggs in one basket, a bit :). But it is more joke than a thoughtful reference - don't take it seriously.
Hi Nikita, I have not forgotten about your questions. Will answer them as soon as I can. They're complicated questions. :)
Any news on the answers? :D
Not yet. :)
I'll try to answer them one by one. Ping me every now on then so this moves forward. :)
> How do you structure all what you read/think about?
I just randomly read a ton of stuff.

One interesting technique is to create github repositories for books and push your notes to github.
For example, I did that for The Little Schemer books:
Ping me again in a bit to get this moved forward :)

It would be nice if you left your e-mail address. Sometimes I want to send a private message, or just thank for the great comment. Having your e-mail really helps.
I will never ever spam you.
