Mike Dooley’s Notes from the Universe


“I kind of got wired for always thinking that I don’t have enough.” [4:34]

“There’s no limit to how scarce you can feel, irrespective of your bank account, the amount of love you get from people, or anything.” [9:18]

“Every business is subject to the entrepreneur’s desire of what they want to build. There is no right or wrong, there are simply different strategies and different playbooks.” [15:57]

“The system only works to a certain degree. It helps you move your learning a little bit faster, but you have to customize that system for it to really work for you.” [17:07]

“It’s not going to be how many hours you can plow through something, but what you can do in those hours. How are you investing your time in learning new things?” [21:28]

“Most of the time when people use a personal brand, it’s because they care for recognition more than the value. It’s not always true, but often that’s the case.” [35:36]
