The most important thing we do is to keep learning, keep improving.

This is scary and hard, because when we’re learning new things we make mistakes.

We can be afraid of looking foolish in front of our peers or embarrassing ourselves.

One of the most inspiring facts I know is that other people don’t actually think about us as much as we think they do.

We just aren’t that important to other people, who have their own lives to lead.

No one will remember the times we tried something and failed, so we’re free to go ahead without worry.

To improve ourselves and inspire others, without fear.

Twenty years ago a group of us were talking to some cute Argentinian girls.

The night was winding down and we were saying goodbye.

This guy I barely knew – this is the only memory I have of him – didn’t know any Spanish.

He waved his hand and called out “Buenos nachos!”

I think about that all the time.

What a dipshit.
