Inspirational Quotes from Steve Jobs

This post is in continuation with my post Maverick Of Digital Age . Unquestionably, Steve Jobs will be remembered for ushering in fundamental changes in the way people interact with technology, he has also been known for his ability to turn a phrase – and a knack for taking complicated ideas and making them easy to understand. Below, a compendium of some of the best Steve Jobs quotes.

  1. Be a yardstick of quality. Some people aren’t used to an environment where excellence is expected.
  2. 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.
  3. Creativity is just connecting things. When you ask creative people how 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. That’s because they were able to connect experiences they’ve had and synthesize new things.  – My personal Favorite
  4. Innovation distinguishes between a leader and a follower.
  5. My favorite things in life don’t cost any money. It’s really clear that the most precious resource we all have is time.
  6.  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. But it’s worth it in the end because once you get there, you can move mountains.
  7. Design is the fundamental soul of a man-made creation that ends up expressing itself in successive outer layers of the product or service. The iMac is not just the color or translucence or the shape of the shell. The essence of the iMac is to be the finest possible consumer computer in which each element plays together.
  8. Sometimes life hits you in the head with a brick. Don’t lose faith.
  9.  To sleep well at night, the aesthetic, the quality, has to be carried all the way through.
  10.  Sometimes when you innovate, you make mistakes. It is best to admit them quickly, and get on with improving your other innovations.
  11.  Our goal is to make the best devices in the world, not to be the biggest.
  12.  Technology is nothing. What’s important is that you have a faith in people, that they’re basically good and smart, and if you give them tools, they’ll do wonderful things with them.
