You might be more talented than me, You might be more smarter than me. But if we get on a treadmill, there are either of the 2 things that’s gonna happen. Either you get off first, or I die on that treadmill. It’s that simple.
There’s an old joke about academic papers. They are all supposed to have three parts. The first part, everyone can understand. The second, only a handful of readers can understand. The last part no one can understand—that’s how the readers know it’s a serious piece of work!
It’s not that I’m so smart, it’s just that I stay with problems longer

Immigration Reform: Stop Ejecting the Brightest Minds From America
Let’s hope Congress does not flinch as it begins the debate about immigration reform because the future is passing through security – in the wrong direction. It leaves the United States on every departing airplane carrying a foreign born student who has graduated from an American university with an advanced degree in the sciences, technology, engineering and math. The majority of these people want to stay in the United States but because of existing immigration laws, they have no choice but to leave.
In Silicon Valley, which has always been blind to any attribute other than ability, everyone knows that the remarkable achievements of the foreign born have led to the formation of companies such as Google, Intel, Sun Microsystems, nVidia, Yahoo! PayPal and scores of others that are less well known. Of the last eleven early stage companies that have allied themselves with Sequoia Capital, seven have had immigrants among their founding lineup. This is not a sudden or recent phenomenon; it has been the leitmotif of our business since the 1970s. However, the number of startups would be even higher if we weren’t ejecting foreign-born students and if we welcomed their contemporaries who have been educated overseas. Today, it is impossible to satisfy Silicon Valley’s appetite for engineers and scientists with people born in America.
