Good stuff I read lately

In China right now with little time to write, so this week I thought I'd let others do the writing for me (no, this wasn't powered by AutoBlogger -- my friend Kai's cool new invention).

Here are three great pieces I read recently that will make you think, followed by a few personal favorite lines.


1. "How to become (or not become) a CEO," a roundup of MBA graduation speeches on Inc. magazine's blog

"Do what you love. Before you figure out how much love will cost you." - Michael Lewis


2. Steve Jobs's speech at Stanford's graduation

"Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart."


3. "You only have to be right once!" from Mark Cuban's site BlogMaverick

"No one is going to know or care about your failures, and neither should you. All you have to do is learn from them and those around you because...All that matters in business is that you get it right once."
