20 Most Inspirational Steve Jobs Quotes


On October 6, 2011

1. 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. If you havent found it yet, keep looking. Dont settle. As with all matters of the heart, youll know when you find it. And, like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the years roll on. So keep looking until you find it. Dont settle. 2. I want to put a ding in the Universe. 3. Lets go invent tomorrow rather than worrying about what happened yesterday. 4. Remembering that Ill be dead soon is the most important tool Ive ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment of failure these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. 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. 5. Creativity is just connecting things. When you ask creative people how they did something, they feel a little guilty because the didnt really do it, they just saw something. It seemed obvious to them after a while. 6. Being the richest man in the cemetery doesnt matter to me Going to bed at night saying weve done something wonderful Thats what matters to me. 7. Quality is more important than quantity. One home run is much better than two doubles.

8. Im convinced that about half of what separates the successful entrepreneurs from the non-successful ones is pure perseverance. 9. People think focus means saying yes to the thing youve got to focus on. But thats not what it means at all. It means saying no to the hundred other good ideas that there are. You have to pick carefully. 10. Design is not just what it looks like and feels like. Design is how it works. 11. You cant connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking bacwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something. Your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. Because believing that the dots will connect down the road will give you the confidence to follow you heart, even when it leads you off the well worn path. And that will make all the difference. 12. If I try my best and fail, well, Ive tried my best. 13. If you want to live your life in a creative way, as an artist, you have to not look back too much. You have to be willing to take whatever youve done and whoever you were and throw them away. 14. When youre a carpenter making a beautiful chest of drawers, youre not going to use a piece of plywood on the back, even though it faces the wall and nobody will ever see it. Youll know its there, so youre 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. 15. You cant just ask customers what they want and then try to give that to them. By the time you get it built, theyll want something new. 16. Thats 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. But its worth it in the end because once you get there, you can move mountains. 17. I think the artistry is in having an insight into what one sees around them. Generally putting things together in a way no one else has before and finding a way to express that to other people who dont have that insight.

18. Its more fun to be a pirate than to join the navy. 19. Your time is limited, so dont waste it living some elses life. Dont pe trapped by dogma wich is living with the results of other peoples thinking. Dont 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. 20. Stay hungry. Stay foolish.
