Great mottos we live by

The wealthiest place on the planet is the graveyard.

Because in the graveyard we will find inventions that we were never ever exposed to;

ideas & dreams that never became reality;

hopes and aspirations that were never acted upon.

– Les Brown


“Too often we just look at these glistening successes. Behind them in many, many cases is failure along the way, and that doesn’t get put into the Wikipedia story or the bio. Yet those failures teach you every bit as much as the successes.”

– Admiral Mike Mullen, on failure


“It takes 20 years to make an overnight success.”

– Eddie Cantor

(and at least 7 in tech – ed)


“By its nature, the Internet undermines anyone whose status depends on privileged access to information”

– Michael Lewis


“I’m no more mature, except that I can do cost benefit analysis of stupid better.”

– Bardia Housman
(Australian tech entrepreneur)


“Stuck in a job you hate? Life is too short to be making a living and not making a life.”

– Ayelet Baron (international speaker)


From Michael Jordan:

Michael-Jordan - I've missed more than 9000 shots..


And, our favourite two:

There is no certainty to failure, other than quitting.


Your dream job does not exist. YOU have to create it.
