Thinking on PURPOSE (2)Being the richest man IN THE CEMENTARYdoesn’t matter to me. Going to bed at nightsaying we’ve done something wonderful, THAT’S WHAT MATTERS TO ME.
Thinking on PURPOSE (3)YOUR TIME ISLIMITED, SO DONTWASTE IT LIVINGSOMEONE ELSES LIFE.Dont be trapped by dogma - which is living with theresults of other peoples thinking. Dont let the noise ofothers opinions drown out your own inner voice. Andmost important, have the courage to follow your heartand intuition. They somehow already know what youtruly want to become. Everything else is secondary.
Thinking on PASSIONDesign is not just what it looks like.DESIGN IS HOW IT WORKS.
Thinking on HOPEYou cant connect the dots looking forward; youcan only connect them looking backwards. So youhave to trust that the dots will somehowconnect in your future. You have to trust insomething - your gut,destiny, life, karma,whatever. Thisapproach has never letme down, and it hasmade all the differencein my life.
Thinking on CURIOSITYYou cant just ask customers what they wantand then try to give that to them.By the time you get it built, they’ll wantsomething new.
Thinking on COURAGEWhen I was 17, I read a quote. "If you live each dayas if it was your last, someday youll most certainly beright." It made an impression on me, and since then,for the past 33 years, I have looked in the mirror everymorning and asked myself: “If today were the last daymy life, would I want to do whatI am about to do today?" Andwhenever the answer hasbeen NO for too many days ina row, I know I need tochange something.
Thinking on TENACITYI’m convincd that about half of what separatesthe successful entrepreneurs from the non-successful ones is purePERSERVERANCE
Barack Obama Got It Right“... brave enough tothink differently,bold enough tobelieve he couldchange the world,and talentedenough to do it."
