Passion and Inspiration are what recharge an entrepreneur’s soul when time get tough.
- This talk by Tim O’Reily and this talk by Tim Draper reminds entrepreneurs that doing something truly bold and ambitious is key to deriving meaning from our work, meaning that attracts others and keeps us sane during the Hard Times.

- In this talk the team from Skybox imaging simultaneously lay out a crazy-big objective (revolutionizing space-based imaging) that sounds preposterous, then show how they have applied lean startup methodology to get down well down the path.
