Go With Your Own Inner Voice

“Innovation distinguishes between a leader and a follower.” – Steve Jobs

The following is a segment of a graduation speech given by Steve Jobs. I think it has a message for CPA firm leaders:

Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice.

And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.

  • "Be a yardstick of quality. Some people aren’t used to an environment where excellence is expected."
  • Steve Jobs
