Insights from a bad haircut

Today I was waiting to get my latest terrible haircut from Family Cuts (I don't know why I keep going there), and was thumbing through Entrepreneur magazine. There was a one page feature on Mark Zuckerberg, who is the creator of Facebook. Zuckerberg was a sophomore at Harvard when he created Facebook. It became a sensation so he dropped out to pursue it as a business. Today it is huge and is literally changing how people communicate on a daily basis. All of this I had learned before for various things I have done regarding Facebook, but this story contained a quote from Zuckerberg comparing his school life and business life that I found insightful:

"In the academic world, it was this 'question everything' mentality - never commit to anything that you can't rigorously prove [is] correct. In the business world, you have to believe in what you're doing and stick to that. That's been an interesting change."
