Attitudes are caught, not taught.
All of you have convening power. We're not in the industrial economy anymore, we're in the connection economy—and connection creates value.
Work is love made visible.
Don't just be a knowledge consumer. Be a knowledge producer.
We need to completely unlearn everything that school taught us about failure.
