It’s not where you start

It’s not where you start but where you finish.

It doesn’t matter that you didn’t come from money.
It doesn’t matter what gender you are.It doesn’t matter what your ethnicity is.
It doesn’t matter what kind of education you have.
It doesn’t matter where you were born.
It doesn’t matter how old you are.
It doesn’t matter how you look or sound.

Don’t worry about the constraints: Google’s home page is so simple but yet so brilliant because the founder, Larry Page, was limited in his abilities to code. The beauty of Twitter is that it is limited to 140 characters not 140,000.

What does matter is that you are willing to start something that is so ridiculously hard, a project so big, that it consumes every bit of you; a project that will make a difference in people’s lives.

Why does it matter?

Because you will be different in the end and the people you touch will be different too.
