Jen-Hyun Huang

You can learn from everyone and anyone, but be yourself.

‎Passionately dedicate yourself to your craft. It will give your life meaning.

Expect excellence from yourself and those around you.

When you believe, amazing things will happen.

Pour everything you have into everything you do. Then, success or failure, there will be no regrets because you did your best.

I apply these principles every day and they’ve served me well.
