I am surprisingly deeply saddened by the passing of Steve Jobs. I never knew him personally (obviously) and my only real connection to him is the amazing products he created (and I purchased...iPhone, iPod, iPod Shuffle, iMac, PowerBook, iPad, MacBook). In following his life story I have come across a few profound quotes that stopped and made me think. I wanted to capture a few quotes that struck me...
"Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life"
“Being the richest man in the cemetery doesn’t matter to me … Going to bed at night saying we’ve done something wonderful… that’s what matters to me.”
“My job is not to be easy on people. My jobs is to take these great people we have and to push them and make them even better.”
“You can’t just ask customers what they want and then try to give that to them. By the time you get it built, they’ll want something new.”
“Innovation distinguishes between a leader and a follower.”
“I’m as proud of what we don’t do as I am of what we do.”
*Please note this is not my image, someone much more talented than I am thought to put his profile as the bite of the apple. I think its brilliant design!*
