A Moment for Steve Jobs: Wise Quotes From A Brilliant Man

I’m don’t consider myself an Apple loyalist, but suffice it to say, I would never let go of my iPod, I write all my blogs on my MacBook, and  the Genius Bar has been my saving grace more than once. Steve Jobs was epic for technology for the masses. And at the heart of that was a distinct, rare ability to think different. A creative vision for how technology could be used.

And so, a moment for Steve Jobs. Here I’ve pulled some of his quotes that I find most inspiring:

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

“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.”

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

“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.”

“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.”
