A man walks into a bar.
The bartender says “Somebody should have set that higher.”


Good enough isn’t good enough. And it’s a long way from great.
Once you see the difference, you stop settling for less.


It isn’t a question of knowing the way.
It’s about knowing where you want to be.

You’ll need more than big ideas.
You’ll need people who can carry them.


And you’ll have to find your audience, or hope they find you.
That’s when you make a connection.


It’s easy to say things without actually saying anything.
If you want people to listen to you, you have to let them in on the joke.

The bartender sets down a fresh glass and starts to pour.
He says “Stop me if you’ve heard this one before.”
