Friday, May 28, 2010, 4:37 AM | 1 Comment

Steve Jobs, the guy who is responsible for Apple and PIXAR and most recently TIME’s Man of the Decade, needs no introduction. Over the years, Steve has made comments about innovation, business, technology, quality and a whole lot more on other subjects. He is having the time of his life. His customers really like his company’s products. Recent news has it that Apple, the maker of iPods, iPhones and iPads, shot past Microsoft, the computer software giant, to become the world’s most valuable technology company.

And I think he is always trying to do better. Steve has made comments on a variety of subjects for us to really think over and follow, some of which are presented here:

  1. Innovation

    Innovation distinguishes between a leader and a follower.

  2. Quality

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

  3. Love what you do

    The only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it.

  4. Beginner’s mind

    There’s a phrase in Buddhism, ‘Beginner’s mind.’ It’s wonderful to have a beginner’s mind.

  5. Turning brain ON/OFF

    We think basically you watch television to turn your brain off, and you work on your computer when you want to turn your brain on.

  6. Create

    You know, we don’t grow most of the food we eat. We wear clothes other people make. We speak a language that other people developed. We use a mathematics that other people evolved… I mean, we’re constantly taking things. It’s a wonderful, ecstatic feeling to create something that puts it back in the pool of human experience and knowledge.

  7. Character-building

    I am the only person I know that’s lost a quarter of a billion dollars in one year…. It’s very character-building.

  8. Meaning of life

    We are here to put a dent in the universe. Otherwise why else even be here?

  9. Trading technology with…

    I would trade all of my technology for an afternoon with Socrates.

  10. Follow your instincts

    Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living the life of someone else. 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. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.

In a Nutshell
Steve has done great not only for Apple and Pixar but for technology and innovation to say the least. Thanks Steve!
