Thank you Steve Jobs. You were a passionate leader, innovator, and an inspiration to us all.
Motivational quotes from Steve Jobs. Remembering a brilliant man.
~ “Sometimes when you innovate, you make mistakes. It is best to admit them quickly, and get on with improving your other innovations.”
~ “Click. Boom. Amazing!”
– Macworld keynote 2006 via MacStories.net
~ “Do what you love to do. Find your true passion. Make a difference. The only way to do great work is to love what you do.”
~ “Start small, think big. Don’t worry about too many things at once. Take a handful of simple things to begin with, and then progress to more complex ones. Think about not just tomorrow, but the future. Put a ding in the universe.”
~ “Be entrepreneurial. Look for the next big thing. Find a set of ideas that need to be acted upon quickly and decisively and jump through that window. Sometimes the first step is the hardest one. Just take it. Have the courage to follow your heart and intuition.”
~ “That’s not what we think design is. It’s not just what it looks like and feels like. Design is how it works”
– New York Times, The Guts of a New Machine, 2003
~ “Quality is more important than quantity. One home run is much better than two doubles.”
~ “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.”
