I spent two years at a big tech company, and in that time I learned a lot about leadership – both how to inspire people to do their very best (and only that), and how to squanderÂ their efforts and spoil their enthusiasm. I will quote the late Steve Jobs. Know I am not endorsing him, just presenting some of his ideas.
Your time is limited, so donâ€™t waste it living someone elseâ€™s life. Donâ€™t be trapped by dogma â€” which is living with the results of other peopleâ€™s thinking. Donâ€™t let the noise of othersâ€™ 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. Everything else is secondary.
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 whatâ€™s next.
My favorite things in life donâ€™t cost any money. Itâ€™s really clear that the most precious resource we all have is time.
For a while at least, I have my time back. Hello, World.
