I posted this on Facebook a week or so ago but since I’m guessing most people likely didn’t have time to watch it I thought I’d write out my favorite quote from the speech here:
“For the past 33 years i’ve looked in the mirror and asked myself, if today was the last day of my life would I want to do what I’m about to do today – and whenever the answer has been no for too many days in a row I know I have to change something.
…and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work – and the only way to do great work is to love what you do.
…You’ve got to find what you love. If you haven’t found it yet keep looking – and don’t settle.”
Easy words for a billionaire… I know. For most folks, myself included, running your life by these kind of idealistic terms is too risky. But once in a while moments come when it is possible.
