Jeff Bezos: What Life Story Will You Write?

A quick bit of inspi­ra­tion from the man who has changed the way we buy books, and now the way we’re read­ing them – Jeff Bezos (CEO, Ama­zon). Speak­ing at Prince­ton’s grad­u­a­tion last May, Bezos dis­cussed the life choic­es that we all face: Will you fol­low dog­ma? Or be orig­i­nal? Will you play it safe? Or take good risks? Will you be a cyn­ic? Or a builder? Will you be clever at the expense of oth­ers? Or will you be kind?

In short, your life sto­ry comes down to your choic­es. What sto­ry will you write? And how will it read when you’re 80?
