Questions


We thought that we had the answers,
it was the questions we had wrong.
- Bono

Successful people ask better questions,
and as a result, they get better answers.
- Tony Robbins

Often, we get stuck on a question
for which we can't find an acceptable answer.
That is a good time to consider asking a different question.
Every question is based on some assumptions -
usually invisible assumptions that we don't see, unless we go looking.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Steve Jobs


Steve Jobs was born February 24, 1955 and died October 5, 2011.

Steve Jobs' Three Rules of Life ...

1. Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life.

they somehow already know what you truly want to become.
