Choices

The following from Jeff Bezos, founder of Amazon.com graduation speech at Princeton.

You have the following choices:

  • Let inertia be your guide, or follow your passions.
  • Follow dogma, or be original.
  • Choose a life of ease, or of service and adventure.
  • Wilt under criticism, or follow your convictions.  
  • Bluff when you’re wrong, or apologize.
  • Guard your heart against rejection, or act when you fall in love.
  • Play it safe, or be a little swashbuckling.
  • Be a cynic, or be a builder.
  • Be clever at the expense of others, or be kind.

Choose wisely for you are the decisions that you make.
