  • How do you see your customers? Help them unleash their inner genius and you’ll win over their hearts and minds. Nobody cares about your company or product. They care about themselves, their dreams, and their goals. Help them achieve their aspirations and you’ll win them over the Steve Jobs way.
  • Steve Jobs has something to teach you about your career, your business, and your brand. He thinks differently about every aspect of business – from product design to marketing to communications. Here are the 7 principles responsible for Jobs’ breakthrough success.
  • How to do find your passion? Passions are those ideas that don’t leave you alone. They are the hopes, dreams and possibilities that consume your thoughts. Follow those passions despite skeptics and naysayers who do not have the courage to follow their dreams.
  • Steve Jobs has never underestimated the power of vision to move a brand forward. In 1976, Steve Wozniak was captivated by Jobs’ vision to “put a computer in the hands of everyday people.”
  • In 1979, Jobs took a tour of the Xerox research facility in Palo Alto, California. There he saw a new technology that let users interact with the computer via colorful graphical icons on the screen instead of entering complex line commands.
  • It was called a “graphical user interface.” In that moment, Jobs knew that this technology would allow him to fulfill his vision of putting a computer in the hands of everyday people. Jobs later said that Xerox could have “dominated” the computer industry but instead its ‘vision’ was limited to building another copier. Two people can see the same thing but perceive it differently based on their vision.
  • “ We’re gambling on our vision, and we’d rather do that than make ‘me-too’ products.” – Steve Jobs
  •   The idea fell from a tree, literally. Steve Jobs had returned from visiting a commune-like place in Oregon located in an apple orchard. Apple co-founder and Jobs’ pal, Steve Wozniak, picked him up from the airport. On the drive home, Jobs simply said, “I came up with a name for our company—Apple.” Wozniak said they could have tried to come up with more technical sounding names but their vision was to make computers approachable. Apple fit perfectly.
  • Steve Jobs creates new ideas precisely because he has spent a lifetime exploring new and unrelated things—seeking out diverse experiences. Jobs hired people from outside the computing profession, he studied the art of calligraphy in college, meditated in an Indian ashram, and evaluated The Four Season s hotel chain as he developed the customer service model for the Apple Stores. Look outside your industry for inspiration.

  • How do you see your customers? Help them unleash their inner genius and you’ll win over their hearts and minds. Nobody cares about your company or product. They care about themselves, their dreams, and their goals. Help them achieve their aspirations and you’ll win them over the Steve Jobs way.
  • Steve Jobs doesn’t rely on focus groups. If he had, they may never have enjoyed iPods, iTunes, the iPhone, the iPad, or Apple Stores. Jobs does not need focus groups because he understands his customers really, really well. Yes, sometimes better than they know themselves!
  • How do you see your customers? Help them unleash their inner genius and you’ll win over their hearts and minds. Nobody cares about your company or product. They care about themselves, their dreams, and their goals. Help them achieve their aspirations and you’ll win them over the Steve Jobs way.
  •   Jonathan Ive, Apple design gur: “We are absolutely consumed by trying to develop a solution that is very simple, because as physical beings we understand clarity.” Your customers demand simplicity and simplicity requires that you eliminate anything that clutters the user experience.
  • Steve Jobs reduced complexity in the Smartphone category by eliminating the keyboard.  
  • The iPad is so simple a 2-year-old can use it.
  •   Steve Jobs’ advice to the new Nike CEO, Mark Parker.
  • Jobs has made the Apple Store the gold standard in customer service by introducing simple innovations any business can adopt to create deeper, more emotional connections with their customers. For example, there are no cashiers in an Apple store. There are experts, consultants, even geniuses, but no cashiers.
  • Carmine’s experience buying a MacBook pro at the Apple store was like being set up on a date and establishing a life-long commitment to the brand.
  • Apple created an innovative retail experience by studying a company known for its customer experience—The Four Seasons. Apple Stores would attract shoppers not by moving boxes, but by “ enriching lives.” The lesson—don’t move “product.” Enrich lives instead and watch your sales soar.
  • Steve Jobs thinks visually about presenting ideas, products, and information. You can have the most innovative idea in the world, but if you can’t get people excited about it, it doesn’t matter. Steve Jobs is considered one of the greatest corporate storytellers in the world because his presentations inform, educate and entertain.
  • If information is presented verbally, your audience will remember 10% of the information. Attach a picture and retention goes up to 65%.
  • Text and images are so much more interesting than bullet points alone.
  •   Perhaps the ultimate lesson that Jobs teaches us is that innovation requires risk-taking and risk taking takes courage and a bit of craziness. See genius in your craziness. Believe in yourself and your vision and be prepared to constantly defend those beliefs. Only then will innovation be allowed to flourish and only then will you be able to lead an “insanely great” life.
