  • problem31 said: Bezos: the Nike Free meaning of life is that your choice transferred from the Harvard Business Review article, Jeff Bezos (Jeff Bezos) Amazon CEO Bezos article excerpts speech to Princeton University graduates have done since 2010. A child, I often go to the Texas ranch grandfather grandmother over the summer, to help them fix windmills, cattle vaccination, do chores. Every afternoon, we will together to watch TV series. I loved grandfather and grandmother, two old worship. They are camping trailers club members, it is the team from the group consisting of Airstream camper owners, team members together on a regular basis in the United States, Canada and around tourism. We participate Cheap Nike Free Outlet in a trip every few years, directly to the road car hanging behind my grandfather's car, on the road. More than three trailers in a line, very spectacular. Nike Air Force one In one case, I was about 10 years old, along the way, I have been free to roll on the back seat of the car. Grandfather in the car, sitting next to his grandmother, kept smoking. And I hate the taste of cigarettes. At that age, I only have the opportunity to love Suanlaisuanqu, do some simple arithmetic exercises. For example, the estimated number of gasoline mileage, or calculate how much money to buy things. That year, there is a warning smoking ad, I have forgotten the details, just remember the effect that, as long as you smoke a cigarette, it will reduce the life of a few minutes, it seems to be two minutes. That day, I decided to help my grandmother do the math: Nike Air Jordan 3 how much she smoked cigarettes a day, each cigarette to smoke a few mouthfuls, and so on. Finally, I am very satisfied to work out a similar figure, head out into the front seat of the car, grandmother patted the shoulder, very proud to say: Nike Air Jordan 'If you smoke a pipe will shorten the life of two Air Jordans Men's minutes, you have to make Nike Blazers your own life is reduced a full nine years. 'Until today, I clearly remember, when to finish Nike Shoes Global the sentence, what happened next, they are completely surprised me. I thought that he would be wise praise: 'Jeff, hello smart, actually would do such a complicated calculation to calculate total number of minutes a year, will get the final result by division ......', but my expected did not happen. Nike Air Max As a result, the grandmother heard my words, immediately cried out. I sat in the back seat, watching my grandmother cry, Nike Air Jordan 13 do not know how to do. At this time, my grandfather had been a quiet drive, parked beside the road. He got off the bus and walked the other Air Jordan Men end car door, so Nike Air Jordan 4 I came out. I get in trouble? Grandfather was a very wise, not many words people. He Lebron James Shoes never scolded me, but this time, he will not speak blame me? Will not call me back to the car, talk Air Jordan Outlet to my grandmother say sorry? Nike Basketball I told among them, have never encountered such a situation, can not determine the possible consequences. Later, we stand camping car and my grandfather Air Jordan 14 looked at me, after a period of silence, gently, calmly he said to me: 'Jeff, one day you will understand that to be a good person, than to be a smart people even more difficult. 'Today I want to tell you, is' the difference between talent 'and' choice 'between. Smart is a natural talent, but kindness is a choice (Cleverness is a gift, kindness is a choice.). Talent Air Jordan 11 come easy, but the choice is often very difficult. If you are not careful, you can be misled by his talent, once misled, it may jeopardize the values ​​of your choice.

In the future, Air Jordan Heels we will invent a method for mass production of clean energy; we'll Nike Air Jordan 10 assemble a super mini machines used to penetrate Air Jordan 12 cells and to Air Jordan 4 class="category-top">Air Lebron Slide repair. I believe that humanity will eventually be fully unlock the secrets of the brain. Verne (Jules Verne, French adventure novelist), Mark Twain, Galileo, Newton ...... courage to explore and create these historical figures, some are eager to re-born in this era of human talent more and more. However, how will you use your talent talents? One day, you will Nike Air Max be proud of what your talent, or your choice? 16 years ago, I came up with the idea of ​​the founder of Amazon. At that time, I saw the amount of use of the Internet, the growth of 2300 percent a year, never seen any trend can grow so fast. If so, why not set up a company with with millions of books, in the real world simply can not exist online bookstore? This idea fascinated me. At that time, I had just turned three years old, married only a year. I told Mrs. McKenzie said, wanted Air Jordan Women to quit his job, will likely fail to engage in this crazy business plan. But if indeed fail, after what to do, I did not think. McKenzie also graduated from Princeton, she gave me the answer is just do it. Since childhood, I was an amateur inventor, live a scrap tire made with an automatic door closer; one kind of foil with an umbrella and put together, but it is difficult to use solar pot; there Air Jordan 13 is a younger brother and sister to fool roast disc siren. I always want to be an inventor, McKenzie also encouraged me to follow my passion. At that time, I was in New York a financial company to work with a group of very smart people working, there is a very powerful, so I was very impressed boss. When I tell him, you want to start their own business, set up a company specializing in network selling books, he took me adidas Crazyquick for a walk in Central Park, I listened carefully explain, finally he told me, 'It sounds like a good idea However, it would Nike Air Jordan 12 Air Max for Men be more suitable for a yet to find good people working to try. 'He convinced me, more consideration to two days to make a decision. For me, this is really a difficult choice in the end, I decided to plunge. Because, in case of failure tried, I do not regret it; but if they do not give it a try, I would be permanently heart. Took a long time, I finally chose a relatively safe way, to follow my passion. Today, for this choice, I am very proud. Tomorrow, by the master of your own life, is about to begin. How would you make good use Nike Shoes of your talent? What choices to make? You can indulge yourself lazy, or follow the passion? You will obey dogma, or insist on innovation? You'll choose comfortable life, or service and create life?

You will be a mockery who was a builder? You will use the method to harm others show clever, or would you rather choose good? I would venture to make a prediction. When you live to be eighty years old, in a quiet, contemplative moment, back to the heart, think of your own life story, the most interesting part, will be those who choose you've done. Life in the end, our choices determine what kind of people we are (We are our choices.). For you to write a wonderful life story. 8:24PM 08/13/15
