Derek Sivers Quotes

Derek Sivers Quote: “Customer service is the new marketing.”

Derek Sivers Quote: “If I’m not saying ‘Hell Yeah!’ to something, then I say no.”
Derek Sivers Quote: “To me, ideas are worth nothing unless executed. They are just a multiplier. Execution is worth millions.”

Derek Sivers Quote: “Never forget why you’re really doing what you’re doing.”
Derek Sivers Quote: “If you really care about starting a movement, have the courage to follow and show others how to follow. And when you find a lone nut doing something great, have the guts to be the first one to stand up and join in.”
Derek Sivers Quote: “Whatever excites you, go do it. Whatever drains you, stop doing it.”
Derek Sivers Quote: “Obvious to you is amazing to others.”
Derek Sivers Quote: “The most important lesson is probably to spend less than you earn.”
Derek Sivers Quote: “Never forget why you’re really doing what you’re doing. Are you helping people? Are they happy? Are you happy? Are you profitable? Isn’t that enough?”
Derek Sivers Quote: “When you make a company, you make a utopia. It’s where you design your perfect world.”
Derek Sivers Quote: “You can’t please everyone, so proudly exclude people.”
Derek Sivers Quote: “If more information was the answer, then we’d all be billionaires with perfect abs.”
Derek Sivers Quote: “Are you helping people? Are they happy? Are you happy? Are you profitable? Isn’t that enough?”

Derek Sivers Quote: “You’re free to do anything you want with your company. It’s more like art. You don’t have to follow any norms. It’s an expression of how you feel the world should be. When you make a company, that’s your little place to make your own little utopia.”
Derek Sivers Quote: “Go find very early versions of things: the first TV pilot of a later-successful TV show; early audition tapes by famous actors; early demos by famous musicians. Focus on these early examples, not what they became over the next 20 years. Remember that what you’re doing will constantly improve.”
Derek Sivers Quote: “The most brilliant idea, with no execution, is worth $20. The most brilliant idea takes great execution to be worth $20,000,000.”
Derek Sivers Quote: “Success comes from persistently improving and inventing, not from persistently promoting what’s not working.”
Derek Sivers Quote: “There is no movement without the first follower. See, we are told that we all need to be leaders but that would be ineffective. The best way to make a movement, if you really care, is to courageously follow and show others how to follow.”
Derek Sivers Quote: “I love that sometimes we need to go to the opposite side of the world to realize assumptions that we didn’t even know we had and realize that the opposite may also be true.”
Derek Sivers Quote: “Making a company is a great way to improve the world while improving yourself.”
Derek Sivers Quote: “Five years after I started CD Baby, when it was a big success, the media said I had revolutionized the music business. But ‘revolution’ is a term that people use only when you’re successful. Before that, you’re just a quirky person who does things differently.”
Derek Sivers Quote: “When you make a business, you get to make a little universe where you control all the laws.”
Derek Sivers Quote: “The purpose of money is to trade for things that make you happy. So if you can bypass money and get directly to the happy, you’ve saved a lot of trouble. And it makes others happier, too, when you organize your business around non-monetary things.”
Derek Sivers Quote: “If you want to be useful, you can always start now. It will be a humble prototype of your grand vision, but you’ll be in the game. Start by teaching someone this week. Starting small puts 100% of your energy into solving real problems for real people.”
Derek Sivers Quote: “Let’s never forget that whatever brilliant ideas you have or hear, that the opposite may also be true.”
Derek Sivers Quote: “Ideas are just a multiplier of execution.”
Derek Sivers Quote: “Learning. It’s really the primary reason behind everything I do. Programming, entrepreneuring, writing.”

Derek Sivers Quote: “In the end, it’s about what you want to be, not what you want to have.”
Derek Sivers Quote: “The creative person basically has two kinds of jobs: One is the sexy, creative kind. Second is the kind that pays the bills. Sometimes the task at hand covers both bases, but not often.”
Derek Sivers Quote: “Instead of staying strong and working through when times are really tough, I usually quit this recipe for failure and start a whole new recipe. So if something is too challenging, I tend to chalk it up as not a good fit, and move on to something else.”
Derek Sivers Quote: “It’s only a little difficult to say no. You’ve got to believe that the work you’re doing is ultimately more useful to the world.”

Derek Sivers Quote: “If it’s not a hit, switch.”
Derek Sivers Quote: “Don’t pursue business just for your own gain. Only answer the calls for help.”
Derek Sivers Quote: “Most people don’t know why they’re doing what they’re doing. They imitate others, go with the flow, and follow paths without making their own. They spend decades in pursuit of something that someone convinced them they should want, without realizing that it won’t make them happy. Don’t.”
Derek Sivers Quote: “Busy is what happens when you’re at the mercy of someone else’s schedule.”
