I think it is often easier to make progress on mega-ambitious dreams. I know that sounds completely nuts. But, since no one else is crazy enough to do it, you have little competition. In fact, there are so few people this crazy that I feel like I know them all by first name. They all travel as if they are pack dogs and stick to each other like glue. The best people want to work on the big challenges. That is what happened with Google. Our mission is to organize the world's information and make it universally accessible and useful. How can that not get you excited? But we almost didn't start Google actually because my co-founder Sergey and I were too worried about dropping out of our Ph.D. program. None of you have that issue it seems. You are probably on the right track, if you feel like a sidewalk worm during a rainstorm! That is about how we felt after we maxed out three credit cards buying hard disks off the back of a truck. That was actually the first hardware for Google. 我认为，自古精英出狂人。这话听起来挺没溜，但正因为别人没你疯狂。你的对手就很少事实上，狂人屈指可数。碰巧我都认识，他们比狗仔队还忙，比亲戚还走得近，乐于接受一个又一个挑战。谷歌就有这样一帮人，我们的任务是整合全世界的信息，使其随手可得，随时可用。碉堡吧?但谷歌差一点夭折，因为我和我的搭档Sergey担心丢了博士学位。好在你们已经毕业。当时我们坚信自己是一只暴风雨里的小小鸟，总有一天会飞得很高。即使刷爆了三张信用卡，买来谷歌的第一批硬盘，也不曾后悔。
Parents and friends: more credit cards always help. What is the one sentence summary of how you change the world? Always work hard on something uncomfortably exciting! As a Ph.D. student, I actually had three projects I wanted to work on. Thank goodness my advisor said, "why don't you work on the web for a while". He gave me some seriously good advice because the web was growing with people and activity, even in 1995! Technology and especially the Internet can really help you be lazy. Lazy? What I mean is a group of three people can write software that millions can use and enjoy. Can three people answer the phone a million times? Find the leverage in the world, so you can be truly lazy! Overall, I know it seems like the world is crumbling out there, but it is actually a great time in your life to get a little crazy, follow your curiosity, and be ambitious about it. Don't give up on your dreams. The world needs you all!
