His words
 “Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life.

drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the
courage to follow your heart and intuition.”

environment where excellence is expected.”
 “Sometimes when you innovate, you make mistakes. It is best to
admit them quickly, and get on with improving your other
