STEVE JOBS QUOTES TO INSPIRE

Steve Jobs, the late co-founder of The Apple Inc., didn’t just leave a legacy of great products. He also shared ideas that continue to inspire and motivate. In honor of Steve Jobs here’s a list of some of his most memorable quotes about success in business.

1. “We don’t get a chance to do that many things, and every one should be really excellent. Because this is our life. Life is brief, and then you die,you know? And we’ve all chosen to do this with our lives. So it better be damn good. It better be worth it.”

2. “That’s been one of my mantras —focus and simplicity. Simple can be harder than complex; you have to work hard to get your thinking clean to make it simple.”

3. . “I think if you do something and it turns out pretty good, then you should go do something else wonderful, not dwell on it for too long. Just figure out what’s next.”

4. “Your time is limited, don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma, which is living the result of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other opinions drown 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.”

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

6. “Innovation distinguishes between a leader and a follower.”

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

8. When you’re a carpenter making a beautiful chest of drawers, you’re not going to use a piece of plywood on the back, even though it faces the wall and nobody will see it. You’ll know it’s there, so you’re going to use a beautiful piece of wood on the back. For you to sleep well at night, the aesthetic, the quality, has to be carried all the way through.”

9. “Creativity is just connecting things. When you ask creative peoplehow they did something, they feel a little guilty because they didn’t really do it, they just saw something. It seemed obvious to them after a while.”

10. “My model for business is The Beatles. They were four guys who kept each other’s kind of negative tendencies in check. They balanced each other and the total was greater than the sum of the parts. That’s how I see business: great things in business are never done by one person, they’re done by a team of people.”
