Embrace what you don't know, especially in the beginning, because what you don't know can become your greatest asset. It ensures that you will be doing things absolutely differently from everybody else.
We don't get a chance to do that many things, and every one should be really excellent. Because this is our life. Life is brief, and then you die, you know? And we've all chosen to do this with our lives. So it better be damn good. It better be worth it.
Leaders get out in front and stay there by raising the standards by which they judge themselves--and by which they are willing to be judged.

Don't limit yourself. Many people limit themselves to what they think they can do. You can go as far as your mind lets you. What you believe, remember, you can achieve.

Whatever future you're building, don't try to program everything. Five-year plans never worked for the Soviet Union -- in fact, if anything, central planning contributed to its fall. Chances are, central planning won't work any better for any of us.
One piece of advice that always stuck in my mind is that people should be respected and trusted as people, not because of their position or title.
