Wisdom from Steve Jobs
Some interesting quotes from Steve Jobs about how to live your life. Here are the ones I liked:
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.” This one seemed appropriate given my earlier post about trying to figure out what I want to do when I grow up.
“There’s a phrase in Buddhism, ‘Beginner’s mind.’ It’s wonderful to have a beginner’s mind.” Learn!
think basically you watch television to turn your brain off, and you
work on your computer when you want to turn your brain on.”
“I’m the only person I know that’s lost a quarter of a billion dollars in one year…. It’s very character-building.” Don’t be afraid to make mistakes!
“We’re here to put a dent in the universe. Otherwise why else even be here?” Make a difference!
time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be
trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s
thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s 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.”
