Clip Notes »
- Whatever is worth doing deserves a start.
- The key entrepreneurial element is perseverance: not vision, or money, or time, or energy. There will be setbacks, and falls are inevitable. Still, while it is remarkably easy to quit and settle for alternatives because the last mile isn’t usually apparent, the grit to get up and start again is what makes winning just as inevitable for an entrepreneur.
- Have a plan. While it is true that life happens, planning isn’t done to predict the future, but to give you significant influence over its outcome.
- No one becomes anything worthwhile without the people that take a chance on them — not even geniuses or self-motivated entrepreneurs. These proponents and mentors do not only discover us but, over time and by harnessing key moments, they also create us.
- History is always a great resource for [re]fresh ideas.
- Live a life that has a meaning apart from success.
- You may not be the center of the world, but you are a significant part of its essence. We are not nearly as insignificant in our place and impact as we often assume.
- Teach people how to treat you. Don’t leave it to chance. Most people will treat you well – if they knew how.
- Pain and suffering may be inevitable facts of life, but how you interpret and handle yourself through the challenge is always your choice.
- I have never found the notion that God knows everything an excuse for ignorance, or His dominion a reason for complacency.
- Faith does not change over time. Religion does.
- I believe one of the most bewildering epiphanies we will discover eventually about heaven is that it never was about a place, but rather a state of being amenable to the present.
- I dislike green vegetables, fish, and reunions.
