Let’s go invent tomorrow rather than worrying about what happened yesterday.
Big choices in Life
Remembering that I’ll be dead soon is the most important tool I’ve ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life.
Making the right choice
I’m actually as proud of many of the things we haven’t done as the things we have done.
How to sleep well
For you to sleep well at night, the aesthetic, the quality, has to be carried all the way through.
Importance of customers
Get closer than ever to your customers. So close that you tell them what they need well before they realize it themselves.
Mechanism of Death
Death is very likely the single best invention of life. It is life’s change agent. It clears out the Old to make way for the new.
Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world are the ones who do.
Sometimes when you innovate, you make mistakes. It is best to admit them quickly, and get on with improving your other innovations.
Connect the dots
You can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backward. So, you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future.
Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it.
What is life?
When you grow up you tend to get told that the world is the way it is and your life is just to live your life inside the world. Try not to bash into the walls too much. Try to have a nice family life, have fun, save a little money. That’s a very limited life. Life can be much broader once you discover one simple fact: Everything around you that you call life was made up by people that were no smarter than you. And you can change it, you can influence it. Once you learn that, you’ll never be the same again.
Live life on your own terms!
Your time is limited so don’t waste it living someone else’s life
Follow your heart
Have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become.
Live as if it is your last day!
If today were the last day of your life, would you want to do what you are about to do today?
How was he as a student?
I was pretty bored in school, and I turned into a little terror. You should have seen us in third grade. We basically destroyed our teacher. We would let snakes loose in the classroom and explode bombs.
