“What we need to do is always lean into the future; when the world changes around you and when it changes against you – what used to be a tail wind is now a head wind – you have to lean into that and figure out what to do because complaining isn’t a strategy.”
Jeff Bezos, CEO Amazon LLC
“You can focus on things that are barriers or you can focus on scaling the wall or redefining the problem.”
Tim Cook, CEO Apple Inc.
“Be passionate and bold. Always keep learning. You stop doing useful things if you don’t learn. So the last part to me is the key, especially if you have had some initial success. It becomes even more critical that you have the learning ‘bit’ always switched on.”
