Better Tomorrows

The greatest thing about tomorrow is, I will be better than I am today. And that’s how I look at my life. I will be better as a golfer, I will be better as a person, I will be better as a father, I will be a better husband, I will be better as a friend. That’s the beauty of tomorrow. There is no such thing as a setback. The lessons I learn today I will apply tomorrow, and I will be better.

1. “Innovation distinguishes between a leader and a follower.”

2. “Be a yardstick of quality. Some people aren’t used to an environment where excellence is expected.”

3. “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.”

4. “You know, we don’t grow most of the food we eat. We wear clothes other people make. We speak a language that other people developed. We use a mathematics that other people evolved… I mean, we’re constantly taking things. It’s a wonderful, ecstatic feeling to create something that puts it back in the pool of human experience and knowledge.”

5. “There’s a phrase in Buddhism, ‘Beginner’s mind.’ It’s wonderful to have a beginner’s mind.”

6. “We think basically you watch television to turn your brain off, and you work on your computer when you want to turn your brain on.”

7. “I’m the only person I know that’s lost a quarter of a billion dollars in one year…. It’s very character-building.”

8. “I would trade all of my technology for an afternoon with Socrates.”

9. “We’re here to put a dent in the universe. Otherwise why else even be here?”

10. “Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”
