If you had told me, “Adam one day you are going to have a company that has a bad reputation in Europe,” I would have taken that.

People say you don’t learn anything by talking because you only hear what you already know. But that’s not true. I learn a lot by talking. That’s how I work through and organize my ideas. That’s also how I get feedback so I can critique my ideas and make them better.

Leaders get the praise when things are good and the blame when things fall apart. Be careful if you want to be a leader. Choose wisely.

I don’t want people to say, “He’s good.” I want people to say, “He’s a genius. No one else could have done that.”

“A cowards dies 1,000 times.” -Hemmingway, I think.

I just think it’s easy to be idealistic when you have a lot of money. True character and thought patterns are shown when things are not working.

I don’t mind hearing no. Just don’t disrespect me.

There is no such thing as time. There is only change.

According to this article, the middle class is losing ground BUT it seems to be entirely because Americans by the tens of millions are moving to the upper class. So I don’t see a problem with that. Rebuttals? Anyone?

When sh*t hits the fan, most people turn to blame each other. This is almost always a sign of weakness and insecurity. Leaders take responsibility and solve problems rather than blaming each other.

It makes you wonder if intellect and physical ability developed together. If you put your current brain into the mind of an elephants body, how much could you really do? Not that much. Think about it.

Just came across this again, so I’ll give it the nod.
