“See a picture of where you want to go and what you want to do in the world, and then work backward.
The quote that kind of captures the way that I’ve always thought about building that picture that I wanted to see in the world is by Steve McQueen. This is him in San Francisco… That is ‘When I believe in something, I fight like hell for it.’ And that has been my life. I’ve had a picture of what I wanted to see in the world, and I did whatever it took to make sure that it succeeded, to make sure that is thrived in both companies.”
