Hilarious/insane quote about Jeff Bezos:Jeff is not wired that way. There are very few people in technology and business who are what I'd call apex predators. Jeff is one of them, the most patient and intelligent one I've met in my life. An apex predator doesn't wake up one day and decide it is done hunting. Right now I envision only one throttle to Jeff's ambitions and it is human mortality, but I would not be surprised if one day he announced he'd started another side project with Peter Thiel to work on a method of achieving immortality.
Such a powerful description of how those rare people with insatiable drives are able to live with such ambiguity. For Bezos, it seems like there is no thought of "I just need to ___
". That's a thirst that won't ever be quenched, and I wonder if that constant quest is its own reward, and if Bezos is a happy guy? Certainly an inspiring read either way.
