1. “Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition, they somehow already know what you truly want to become.”

2. “We don’t get a chance to do that many things, and each one should be excellent. Because this is our life. Life is brief, and then you die, you know? And we’ve all chosen to do this with our lives. So it better be damn good. It better be worth it!”

3. “I think if you do something and it turns out pretty good, then you should go do something else wonderful, not dwell on it for too long. Just figure out what’s next.”

4. “Innovation distinguishes between a leader and a follower.”

5. “For the past 33 years, I have looked in the mirror every morning and asked myself: ‘If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?’ And whenever the answer has been ‘No’ for too many days in a row, I know I need to change something.”

6. “I’m as proud of many of the things we haven’t done as the things we have done. Innovation is saying no to a thousand things.”

7. “Everyone here has the sense that right now is one of those moments when we are influencing the future.”

8. “My favorite things in life don’t cost any money. It’s really clear that the most precious resource we all have is time.”

9. “Sometimes life hits you in the head with a brick. Don’t lose faith.”

10. “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. “

11. “Things don’t have to change the world to be important.”

12. “I’m convinced that about half of what separates the successful entrepreneurs from the non-successful ones is pure perseverance.”

13. “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, you can build your own things that other people can use.”
