Steve Jobs Inspirational Words [1955-2011]

Steve Jobs wasn't only the visionary behind the iEverything, he also dropped A LOT OF KNOWLEDGE.




 "Remembering that I'll be dead soon is the most important tool I've ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything -- all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure - these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. 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. ... Stay hungry. Stay foolish." ~Steve Jobs "

[Y]ou can'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." 

 “Sometimes when you innovate, you make mistakes. It is best to admit them quickly, and get on with improving your other innovations.” 

 “Be a yardstick of quality. Some people aren’t used to an environment where excellence is expected.” 

“Innovation distinguishes between a leader and a follower.” 

 “Quality is more important than quantity. One home run is much better than two doubles.”

 “It’s really hard to design products by focus groups. A lot of times, people don’t know what they want until you show it to them.” 

 “I’m convinced that about half of what separates the successful entrepreneurs from the non-successful ones is pure perseverance.” 

 “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 other’s 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.” ~Thank you Steve Jobs
