Google’s Matt Cutts

“A few years ago, I felt like I was stuck in a rut, so I decided to follow in the footsteps of the great American philosopher, Morgan Spurlock, and try something new for 30 days. The idea is actually pretty simple. Think about something you’ve always wanted to add to your life and try it for the next 30 days. It turns out, 30 days is just about the time to add a new habit or subtract a habit – like watching the news – from your life.” See more:


Marc Benioff, co-founder of Salesforce

“The secret to successful hiring is this: look for the people who want to change the world.”

“Our business in life is not to get ahead of others, but to get ahead of ourselves.”

Steve Jobs

“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.”

“You can’t ask customers what they want and then try to give that to them. By the time you get it built, they’ll want something new.”

“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.”

“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. And, like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the years roll on. So keep looking until you find it. Don’t settle.”

“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.”


Richard Branson, founder of Virgin

“Business opportunities are like buses, there’s always another one coming.”


Albert Einstein

“Logic will get you from A to B. Imagination will take you everywhere.”

“Try not to be a man of success, but rather try to become a man of value.”


Michael Gerber, founder of Michael E. Gerber Companies

“The entrepreneur builds an enterprise; the technician builds a job.”

“Coming together is a beginning; keeping together is progress; working together is success.”

“The way to get started is to quit talking and begin doing.”
