Life is pretty simple

“Life is pretty simple: You do some stuff. Most fails. Some works. You do more of what works. If it works big, others quickly copy it. Then you do something else. The trick is in the doing something else.”


This quote is attributed by some to Leonardo da Vinci, while others say that Tom Peters wrote it in Chicago Tribune, in 1994. I don’t really care who said it first, I am just angry that it wasn’t me. And it wasn’t even me who found it, but my daughter. “Dad – she told me the other day – I found THE quote that I believe represents you completely.” And I must agree with her.

This quote represents the core of entrepreneurship, the deepest of my beliefs. I’ve been doing this for the past 20 some years and I hope to continue doing the same the next 20 :-).

Your daughter is proud of you and you are proud of her :). And that is a very good quote.

I remembered another great quote by Churchill: “Success is the ability to go from failure to failure without losing your enthusiasm”.
After you got your first major success it gets easier to deal and learn from failure?

Radu, you are proud father.
Congrats on all your hard work, you are a model for most of the IT entrepreneurs. Some of them like myself, started doing stuff inspired by your first success with Gecad.
