Great Quotes

I came across some very nice quotes on the web. 

Some were really good and worth repeating.
  • Figure out what the top five most important stuff is, focus relentlessly on that and keep iterating. Less is more. -- Daniel Ek, CEO, Spotify
 My personal limit is upto 3 concurrent goals. It gets much much more complicated if it grows more than that. Have 3-4-5 (whatever suits you fine) goals that are top of the list and focus on them wholeheartedly.
  • Don’t let people tell you your ideas won’t work. If you have a hunch that something will work, go build it. Ignore the haters. -- Dennis Crowley, CEO, FourSquare
 There will always be naysayers. It's more important to believe in yourself and do what you think is right. End of the day you are only answerable to yourself, and no one else.
  • Follow your gut. it may be wrong, but you won’t regret it if you fail. You’ll regret it if you ignore your gut and fail. -- Sarah Lacy, CEO, PandoDaily
 Follow your instincts, but upto a limit. Then get some data to back your instincts. If your data and instincts are pointing the same way, then ignore everything else and just go ahead and execute.
  • Pick one thing and do that one thing — and only that one thing — better than anyone else ever could. -- Jason Goldberg, CEO, Fab.com
 This might seem to be contrary to the first point, but its not. This means that you should not multitask. Concentrate on what you are doing right now well, then when you are done with it, move on to the next thing.
  • Always be learning from others. Whenever you meet someone, you don’t want something from them, you want to learn from them. -- Brian Wong, CEO, Kiip
The secret of success is to be a perpetual learning machine. There is no alternative to learning all the time.
