Steve Jobs – 5 Lessons You Taught Me
Half way through the week & it’s #WednesdayWisdom
On this day I get to feature one of the most influential and unbelievably innovative men this world has ever known.
Steven Paul “Steve” Jobs (/ˈdʒɒbz/; February 24, 1955 – October 5, 2011) was an American information technology entrepreneur and inventor. Jobs is widely recognized as a pioneer of the microcomputer revolution.
There was such undeniable power in his work ethic, belief, passion & posture that it’s almost unbearable to imagine a world without him. Steve not only innovated but inspired change throughout the world. He opened it’s eyes to true competition by only trying to be better than he was yesterday.
The lessons I share today, I believe, can be applied to each and every person on this planet. It’s only a small testimony to his EPIC legacy.
“I’m convinced that about half of what separates the successful entrepreneurs from the non-successful ones is pure perseverance.”
Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it.
We don’t get a chance to do that many things, and every one should be really excellent. Because this is our life. Life is brief, and then you die, you know? And we’ve all chosen to do this with our lives. So it better be damn good. It better be worth it.
“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma—which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition.”
“Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart.“
I need not say more 🙂
