Jimmy Iovine USC Commencement Speech 2014
The moment in between what you once were, and who you are now becoming, is where the dance of life really takes place. - Barbara de Angelis (b. 1951)
The only thing that is important is to stay loyal to yourself, and to stay loyal to the music, and not to forget where you come from. Because you can be in a competitive situation, but I think it's also important to play fair. When people start to make people do things. Like someone is trying to cancel your party by calling the police. That's wrong. Someone is calling another person saying "Don't book this guy, because he is like this and that." That's wrong. Some person doesn't like another guy because of this person's success. That's wrong. But besides that the competitive part you know it makes people be better. I'm not against it. - Guy Gerber

2016 New Year's Resolution
Every year I like to post my new year's resolution(s), and peak experiences from the previous year. (I also post a picture of where I was on New Years Eve.) It's fun to go back and look at my old ones 2015, 2014, 2013, 2012, 2011, 2010. It's been an excellent way of keeping myself accountable and as a reminder that change is constant.
