“My job is not to be easy on people. My job is to take these great people we have and to push them and make them even better.”

“I think if you do something and it turns out pretty good, then you should go do something else wonderful, not dwell on it for too long. Just figure out what’s next.”

“Innovation distinguishes between a leader and a follower.”
