    Le Consentement


Tandis que les mots se détachent de leur support pour venir m’encercler telle une nuée de démons, tout l’univers s’écroule autour de moi, les meubles de la chambre ne sont plus que ruines fumantes, des cendres flottent dans l’air devenu irrespirable.
    Le Consentement

    Le Consentement


Et écrire, eh bien, ça peut paraître idiot, mais ça commence par s’asseoir, et puis... écrire. Tous les jours. Sans déroger.
    Le Consentement


Je ne sais si on peut dans ce cas parler de viol médical ou d’acte barbare. Mais quoi qu’il en soit, c’est bien sous le coup – habile et indolore – d’un bistouri en inox, que je deviens enfin une femme.
    Le Consentement


Avec dévouement, il me propose dans la foulée une légère incision sous anesthésie locale, qui me permettra d’accéder enfin aux joies du sexe.

    Le Consentement

    Fire and Fury


She treated her father with some lightness, even irony, and in at least one television interview she made fun of his comb-over. She often described the mechanics behind it to friends: an absolutely clean pate – a contained island after scalp reduction surgery – surrounded by a furry circle of hair around the sides and front, from which all ends are drawn up to meet in the center and then swept back and secured by a stiffening spray. The color, she would point out to comical effect, was from a product called Just for Men – the longer it was left on, the darker it got. Impatience resulted in Trump’s orange-blond hair color.
    Fire and Fury


Jared and Ivanka had made an earnest deal between themselves: if sometime in the future the time came, she’d be the one to run for president (or the first one of them to take the shot). The first woman president, Ivanka entertained, would not be Hillary Clinton, it would be Ivanka Trump.
    Fire and Fury


That was the trouble-free outcome they awaited on November 8, 2016. Losing would work out for everybody.
Shorty after eight o’clock that evening, when the unexpected trend – Trump might actually win – seemed confirmed, Don Jr. told a friend that his father, or DJT, as he called him, looked as if he had seen a ghost. Melania, to whom Donald Trump had made his solemn guarantee, was in tears – and not of joy.
There was, in the space of little more than an hour, in Steve Bannon’s not unamused observation, a befuddled Trump morphing into a disbelieving Trump and then into a quite horrified Trump. But still to come was the final transformation: suddenly, Donald Trump became a man who believed that he deserved to be and was wholly capable of being the president of the United States.

Ericsson essentially gave us our first real insights into mastery and birthed the idea of the "10,000-hour rule."
    The One Thing


That's the journey of mastery – it never ends.
    The One Thing


Since there is always another level to learn, mastery actually means you're a master of what you know and an apprentice of what you don't. In other words, we become masters of what is behind us and apprentices for what is ahead. This is why mastery is a journey.
    The One Thing


Nobody who ever gave his best regretted it.
— George Halas

    The One Thing


The people who achieve extraordinary results don't achieve them by working more hours. They achieve them by getting more done in the hours they work.

Time blocking works only when your mantra is "Nothing and no one has permission to distract me from my ONE Thing."
    The One Thing


The immortal Ernest Hemingway kept a strict writing schedule starting at seven every morning in his bedroom. The mortal but still immensely talented business author Dan Heath "bought an old laptop, deleted all its browsers, and, for good measure, deleted its wireless network drivers" and would take his "way-back machine", to a coffee shop to avoid distractions. Between the two extremes, you could just find a vacant room and simply close the door.
    The One Thing


Until My ONE Thing Is Done – Everything Else Is A Distraction!

In On Writing, Stephen King describes his work flow: "My own schedule is pretty clear-cut. Mornings belong to whatever is new – the current composition. Afternoons are for naps and letters. Evenings are for reading, family, Red Sox games on TV; and any revisions that just cannot wait. Basically mornings are my prime writing time." Four hours a day may scare you more than King's novels, but you can't argue with his results. Stephen King is one of the most successful and prolific writers of our time.
    The One Thing


My recommendation is to block four hours a day. This isn't a typo. I repeat: four hours a day. Honestly, that's the minimum. If you can do more, then do it.
    The One Thing


The most productive people work on event time. They don't quit until their One Thing is done.
    The One Thing


In A Geography of Time, Robert Levine points out that most people work on "clock" time – "It's five o'clock, I'll see you tomorrow" – while others work on "event" time – "My work is done when it's done."
    The One Thing


Resting is as important as working.

If disproportionate results come from one activity, then you must give that one activity disproportionate time. Each and every day, ask this Focusing Question for your blocked time: "Today, what's the One Thing I can do for my One Thing such that by doing it everything else will be easier or unnecessary?" When you find the answer, you'll be doing the most leveraged activity for your most leveraged work.
This is how results become extraordinary.

    The One Thing

Concentrate all your thoughts upon the work at hand. The sun's rays do not burn until brought to a focus.
— Graham Bell
