Interesting article on Ron Wayne, who was an original founder of Apple along with Jobs and Woz. He had a 10% stake in the company, then two weeks later pulled out because he didn't know if he could take the risk. He was paid $1,500 dollars to pull out, but would be worth $23 Billion today. He lived a modest life as an engineer and at least he has no regrets.

And here's the orginal logo he designed for the company :

Decisions in life are hard. It comes down to the type of person one is. Risky people take risks that has high rewards but also higher risks. People like me that are not big risk takers end up working at ESP and not a programmer like I should be.
