Title: CEO of Amazon

Commencement Address: Carnegie Mellon (2008)

Hightlight: “Successful folks focus in on what they love and they wait for the world to come to them. The alternative, which is chasing the day’s hot trend is a difficult road. At the height of the Internet gold rush in 1999, I watched many people who had no real interest in computers, no real interest in technology, and no real interest in business sit down and start panning for Internet gold. Very difficult. For one thing, it’s dangerous to jump into an arena where you find yourself competing against those who have more passion than you. Don’t try that at home. The good news is, if we listen to ourselves, we already know what our passions are. Our hearts are a reliable guide on this one.”
