1. “For the past 33 years, I have looked in the mirror every morning and asked myself: ‘If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?’ And whenever the answer has been no for too many days in a row, I know I need to change something.”

2. “You can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something — your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life.”

3. “Focus is about saying no.”

4. “Often, the people who are successful loved what they did so they could persevere when things got really tough. The ones that didn’t love it quit — cause they’re sane.”

5. “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 what’s next.”

6. “Great things in business are never done by one person. They’re done by a team of people.”

7. “Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, 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. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it.”

8. “Sometimes life hits you in the head with a brick. Don’t lose faith.”

9. “Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked.”

10. “Have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”
