Wise words from Jeff Bezos, CEO Amazon.com

April 16, 2013

“I hazard a prediction. When you are 80 years old, and in the quiet moment of reflection narrating for yourself the most personal version of your life story, the telling that will be most compact and meaningful will be the series of choices you have made. In the end we are our choices. As you go through life, build yourself a great story. You won’t get another chance.”


This is the slightly modified last paragraph of Amazon.com CEO Jeff Bezo’s commencement address at Princeton University, May 30, 2010. The modifications are mine and are underlined.
