“We’re having fun most of the time. I think some of our customers really love our products. We’re always trying to do better.”– Steve Jobs
Visionary. His accomplishments and character helped define a generation and change the world. He is co-founder of the fairytale company we now know as Apple Computers. And he is the Visionary of the personal computers world that led the entire computer hardware & software industry to restructure itself.
Energy. This man with boundless energy and charisma is also a master of hype, hyperbole and the catchy phrase. And even when he’s trying to talk normally, brilliant verbiage comes tumbling out.
Here’s a selection of some of the most insanely great things he said, golden lessons to help you succeed in life, Steve Jobs-style:
1. “Innovation distinguishes between a Leader & a Follower.”
Innovation has no limits. The only limit is your imagination. It’s time for you to begin thinking “out of the box”. If you are involved in a growing industry, think of ways to become more efficient; more customer friendly; & easier to do business with. If you are involved in a shrinking industry – get out of it quick and change before you become obsolete; out of work; or out of business. And remember that procrastination is not an option here. Start innovating now!
2. “Be a Yardstick of Quality”.
Some people aren’t used to an environment where excellence is expected. There is no shortcut to excellence. You will have to make the commitment to make excellence your priority. Use your talents, abilities, & skills in the best way possible and get ahead of others, by giving that little extra. Live by a higher standard and pay attention to the details that really do make the difference. Excellence is not difficult – simply decide right now to give it your best shot – and you will be amazed with what life gives you back.
