“Never let someone with little perspective guide you away from your passion. Next time you have a conversation with someone who doesn’t understand why you are doing what you are doing, try to understand their perspective. How were they raised? What was their path in life? This will often let you understand why they are making the statements they are. By getting this, you can understand where they are coming from. People that are not in your world will very often not have the same perspective to you. Remember, that’s what makes the world so unique and wonderful.”— The Most Powerful Word In The Human Vocabulary: Perspective
“We made mistakes, of course. Most of them were omissions we didn’t think of when we initially wrote the software. We fixed them by doing it over and over, again and again. We do the same today.

ready with wires and screws, we are on version #10. It gets back to planning versus acting: We act from day one; others plan how to plan—for months.”—Bloomberg by Bloomberg
I’m now Presidential Platinum Elite on Continental Airlines because of their non-stop to India from NYC, yet I don’t care to fly them NYC to SF/LA because American Airlines has WiFi and Continental doesn’t. I’d much rather have 6 hours of connectivity/productivity than 7000 miles. Is WiFi the new frequent flyer program?
