118: Dan Miller – From Day Job To Passionate Work

“Next time you meet someone, try asking: ‘How are you making the world a better place?’ Rather than the normal ‘What do you do?’.”

“That beautiful blend, that convergence of money, talent, and passion.”

“You can’t pretend to be something and do a good job in doing it. You have to find that authentic place to really do well, what you’re doing.”

“I was raised in an environment where your word is your bond. If your word isn’t any good, dig a hole and push me in, I’m done.”

“Any healthy organization has change. There’s no healthy organization that is stagnant. If it is, then it starts to deteriorate. So, change is evidence of growth. Change is evidence of being alive.”

“If somebody stays with you out of a sense of obligation, you’ll both end up resenting it.”

“Continual learning is the key to continual living. If you stop learning, you have effectively stopped living.”

“I don’t recoil from fear…I don’t mind fear being in the presence. If I’m going to go on a trip, I want fear to be in the back seat, not in the driver’s seat.”

“Be different. Don’t worry about being first…be different.”

“It’s never too late to have a new beginning.”
