Three things that will carry you if you let them - Knowing who you are and what you want, finding a way to serve in a significant and lasting way and, lastly, do the right thing always. Be excellent and allow people to notice this - let excellence be your brand.

JEFF WEINER - CEO OF LINKEDIN

You can do anything you set your mind to - decide what you want to do, always balancing skill and passion, and work towards it.  Everything physical, that can be made digital, will be as technology advances.  Focus your energy on things that will have an impact that correlates to your goals in life. SAPA990304276610 MUHAMMAD ALI - LEGENDARY BOXER “He took a few cups of love. He took one tablespoon of patience. One teaspoon of generosity. One pint of kindness. He took one quart of laughter. One pinch of concern. And then he mixed willingness with happiness. He added lots of faith, and he stirred it up well. Then he spread it over a span of a lifetime and he served it to each and every deserving person he met.” richardbranson RICHARD BRANSON - ENTREPRENEUR Focus on the people - find the best people to run the company. Make sure they are properly rewarded,  motivated and given the freedom to go ahead and make good things. michael-dell MICHAEL DELL - FOUNDER AND CEO OF DELL INC One of the things I see in new businesses is that they are often looking for perfection. I think this is a big mistake. I think you ought to be looking for experiments - quick experiments. It’s ok to have little failures. What you want to do it to learn as much as you can very quickly and try things. When we were a small business, we would go out and do all sorts of things to find what would work. When we find what works, we go out and do it a hundred or thousand more times. We still do that today as a large company.
