Larry Page – Grab a Dream
Google co-founder Larry Page calls on us to get a little crazy and not minimize our ambitions, because the world needs more mega dreamers.
“I was completely devastated. Many years later, after a start-up, after falling in love, and after so many of life’s adventures, I found myself thinking about my dad. Always remember that the moments we have with friends and family, the chances we have to do things that might make a big difference in the world or even to make a small difference to the ones we love, all those wonderful chances that life gives us, life also takes away. It can happen fast and a whole lot sooner than you think.
“I know it seems like the world is crumbling out there but it’s actually a great time in your life to get a little crazy, follow your curiosity, and be ambitious about it. Don’t give up on your dream. The world needs you all. I think it is often easier to make progress on mega ambitious dreams. I know that sounds completely nuts but since no one else is crazy enough to do it, you have little competition. What is the one sentence summary of how you change the world? Always work hard on something uncomfortably exciting. When a really great dream shows up, grab it.”
