DREAM BIG: GOOGLE'S FOUNDERS


In 1998, Larry Page and Sergey Brin picked the number one followed by 100 zeroes while they were still graduate students at Stanford University. That number in mathematical terms is called a googol, and that became the name of their new enterprise. Today, Google operates the largest search engine in the world with internet users performing hundreds of millions searches a day.


Jim Reese, chief operations engineer of Google, says this about Brin and Page: "It takes a lot of confidence and courage to go ahead and do that [i.e., to be that big]. It's rare to find people who think on such a grand scale and are able to create a great product at the same time." (FreshMinistry.org, 11-5-02)


Google's founders were dreamers, and that's what it takes to accomplish great things. It takes a great dream to do great things, and that's true not only in business but also in the ministry to which God has called us.



(From a sermon by C. Philip Green, Disappointed Dreamer, 8/20/2011)
