In his younger years, billionaire Nvidia CEO and co-founder Jensen Huang often worried about not having enough time to achieve his ambitions. 

Looking back on his journey, he now shares a piece of advice he wishes he could have given his younger self: "There's plenty of time."

The 61-year-old businessman Huang emphasises the importance of prioritising one's time wisely. 

He reflects on this in the "Acquired" podcast from last year, urging, "Be strategic about identifying and focusing on the most important things that need your attention at work and at home. Just don't do everything. Prioritize your life. Make sacrifices."

NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang built his nearly $2.7 trillion tech giant from a humble beginning at Denny’s booth in 1993. 


He emphasizes the importance of learning to prioritize one's most important professional and personal responsibilities to enhance productivity and foster a fulfilling work-life balance, a concept supported by research. 

In a talk at Stanford University, Huang highlighted the significance of resilience in overcoming life's challenges, stating, "Resilience matters in success."

"I don't know how to teach it to you except to hope that you experience suffering." This message emphasizes the belief that enduring hardships can build the strength needed for success.
