The people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world are the ones who do.
That’s been one of my mantras—focus and simplicity. Simple can be harder than complex; you have to work hard to get your thinking clean to make it simple. But it’s worth it in the end because once you get there, you can move mountains.
I’ve always been attracted to the more revolutionary changes. I don’t know why. Because they’re harder. They’re much more stressful emotionally. And you usually go through a period where everybody tells you that you’ve completely failed.
Have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.
Creativity is just connecting things.
Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life.
Think Differently!
Sometimes when you innovate, you make mistakes. It is best to admit them quickly, and get on with improving your other innovations.
Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice.
Quality is more important than quantity. One home run is much better than two doubles.
I’m convinced that about half of what separates successful entrepreneurs from the non-successful ones is pure perseverance.
Being the richest man in the cemetery doesn’t matter to me. Going to bed at night saying we’ve done something wonderful...that’s what matters to me.
You have to be burning with an idea, or a problem, or a wrong that you want to right. If you’re not passionate enough from the start, you’ll never stick it out.
