Words of Wisdom by Tim Cook

June 22nd, 6:16 PM EST

I just read the article published recently about CEO Tim Cook addressing graduates whereby he borrowed words from his mentor as well as his ownl:

He reinstated: “Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life.. Your mentors may leave you prepared, but they can’t leave you ready.’ ”

He continued by encouraging the class of 2019 to follow his footsteps and be the best version of themselves as much as possible. He explains, “You got out of bed every morning and set your watch by what other people expect or demand, it’ll drive you crazy.”

“Don’t try to emulate the people who came before you to the exclusion of everything else, contorting into a shape that doesn’t fit,” Cook said. “It takes too much mental effort – effort that should be dedicated to creating and building. You’ll waste precious time trying to rewire your every thought, and, in the meantime, you won’t be fooling anybody.”

What are your thoughts?
