When I was 17, I read a quote that went something like: If you live each day as if it was your last, someday you’ll most certainly be right.

It made an impression on me, and since then, 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.

Steve Jobs on Startups

daslee:

“I hate it when people call themselves ‘entrepreneurs’ when what they’re really trying to do is launch a startup and then sell of go public, so they can cash in and move on. They’re unwilling to do the work it takes to build a real company, which is the hardest work in business.”

It’s okay to be driven a little crazy by someone who is so consistently right.
