This men literally changed the World we live in. He had a vision, he failed, but he came back to change everybody’s daily habits. He pushed others to the limit and changed entire industries. Even if I don’t always agree with its company’s decisions, I will always respect its vision, its work and its dedication. Rest in peace Mr. Job.
Here are my collection of Steve’s best quotes that I aggregated over time… I hope it helps you understanding who the men was.
â€œYour time is limited, so donâ€™t waste it living someone elseâ€™s life. Donâ€™t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other peopleâ€™s thinking. Donâ€™t let the noise of othersâ€™ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary. â€œ – Steve Jobs
â€œWhen I was 17, I read a quote that went something like: â€œIf you live each day as if it was your last, someday youâ€™ll most certainly be right.â€ It made an impression on me, and since then, for the past 33 years, I have looked in the mirror every morning and asked myself: â€œIf today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?â€ And whenever the answer has been â€œNoâ€ for too many days in a row, I know I need to change something.â€ – Steve Jobs
â€œYour 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 havenâ€™t found it yet, keep looking. Donâ€™t settle. As with all matters of the heart, youâ€™ll know when you find it. And, like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the years roll on. So keep looking until you find it. Donâ€™t settle.â€ – Steve Jobs
â€œAgain, you canâ€™t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something – your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life.â€Â – Steve Jobs
â€œTo design something really well you have to get it. You have to really grok what itâ€™s all about. It takes a passionate commitment to thoroughly understand something – chew it up, not just quickly swallow it. Most people donâ€™t take the time to do that. Creativity is just connecting things. When you ask a creative person how they did something, they may feel a little guilty because they didnâ€™t really do it, they just saw something. It seemed obvious to them after a while. Thatâ€™s because they were able to connect experiences theyâ€™ve had and synthesize new things. And the reason they were able to do that was that theyâ€™ve had more experiences or have thought more about their experiences than other people have. Unfortunately, thatâ€™s too rare a commodity. A lot of people in our industry havenâ€™t had very diverse experiences. They donâ€™t have enough dots to connect, and they en up with very linear solutions, without a broad perspective on the problem. The broader oneâ€™s understanding of the human experience, the better designs we will have.â€ – Steve Jobs
