One last thing

I'm a dreamer, that's my nature
No idea what I wanted to do with my life
I still don't

I'm not fond of rules
No respect for the status quo
I have been called a troublemaker

I always followed my curiosity and intuition
This turned out to be priceless

It's impossible to connect the dots looking forward
Do trust the dots will somehow connect in your future
It will make all the difference
I had an idea, a dream to be exact
A better way to mobilize talent
A faster way to change the world

I was lucky to have worked with great people
But visions of the future began to diverse
Eventually we had a falling out

It was time for me to leave
But I still love what I do
The heaviness of being successful has ended
Replaced by the lightness of being a beginner again
Less sure about everything

You got to find what you love
Do what you believe is great work
The only way to do great work is to do what you love to do

If you haven't found it yet, keep looking, never settle
You'll know when you found it
I lately looked too many times in the mirror
Too many no's in a row for too many days
I knew I needed to change something

There's no reason not to follow your heart
Clear out the old to make way for the new

Don't waste time living someone else's life
Don't be trapped by dogma
Follow your inner voice
We'll meet again, of that I'm sure
Stay hungry, stay foolish
Never settle

For the good times we had
To those who came before me

You ain't seen nothing yet
