1. Follow Your Curiosity: I have no special talent. I am only passionately curious.
2. Perseverance is Priceless: It’s not that I’m so smart; it’s just that I stay with problems longer.
3. Focus on the Present: Any man who can drive safely while kissing a pretty girl is simply not giving the kiss the attention it deserves.
4. Imagination is Powerful: Imagination is everything. It is the preview of life’s coming attractions. Imagination is more important than knowledge.
5. Make Mistakes: A person who never made a mistake never tried anything new.
6. Live in the Moment: I never think of the future – it comes soon enough.
7. Create Value: Strive not to be a success, but rather to be of value.
8. Don’t Be Repetitive: Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.
9. Knowledge Comes From Experience: Information is not knowledge. The only source of knowledge is experience.
10. Learn the Rules and Then Play Better: You have to learn the rules of the game. And then you have to play better than anyone else.
