Food can be used as a metaphor for any objective or goal so that would insinuate that I should keep searching for my goal; note that there is a difference between working towards a goal and continuous searching.
Whereas, if I continue to stay hungry, I may work on bringing quality with that quantity. So at 30 I was out.
And very publicly out. What had been the focus of my entire adult life was gone, and it was devastating.
I felt that I had let the previous generation of entrepreneurs down — that I had dropped the baton as it was being passed to me. I met with David Packard and Bob Noyce and tried to apologize for screwing up so badly. I was a very public failure, and I even thought about running away from the valley.

And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. And, like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the years roll on. So keep looking until you find it.
