“The biggest risk is that a lot of people will try to talk you out of pursuing your dream. The world has too many people who are happy to discuss why something might not work, and too few who will cheer you and say, "I'm there for you." The more time you spend navel-gazing, the longer you give those negative gravitational forces to keep you in their tether.”
John Wood, Leaving Microsoft to Change the World: An Entrepreneur's Odyssey to Educate the World's Children

“There are two ways to remove a Band-Aid : slowly and painfully, or quickly and painfully. Your choice.”
John Wood, Leaving Microsoft to Change the World: An Entrepreneur's Odyssey to Educate the World's Children

“If you are thinking about making some adjustments in you life to allow you to help change the world, my heartfelt recommendation is not to spend too much time thinking about it. Just dive in.”
John Wood, Leaving Microsoft to Change the World: An Entrepreneur's Odyssey to Educate the World's Children
