The significance of small steps, tasks and decisions can only be realized when the goal is achieved. The belief that it will be achieved gives you the strength to take the step in the first place.
He stayed back in college till 18 months after dropping out, taking only the courses that interested him. Slept on the floor ,ate from the Hare Krishna temple. He says “ It wasn’t all romantic” but one of the best decisions he ever made. Multiple typefaces and excellent typography were a result of a calligraphy course he took after dropping out. It taught him not only what he wanted to do in life, but also later on served as the origin of invention of multiple typefaces.
An year ago the finest creation in the IT world, Macintosh had been released and there he was, at thirty, naked in the dark, fired from apple. He sees it now as an incident that changed his life in extraordinary measures. When he was out, he created Pixar and NeXT, that we know were marvels in themselves.
He looks in the mirror, asks himself “ Would I be doing what I am going to do today if this were the last day of my life.” If the answer is no for too many days in a row, I know I need a change. Embarrassment, fear of failure, expectations just fall away if you remember you’re going to die. Some day you’ll be cleared away to make way for the new. Your time is now, don’t waste it.
A true visionary who created the first truly personal computer, the Apple, in his garage. Envisioned to target Education and small business industries simultaneously. Did that by forming a whole new company: NeXT Apple has now achieved Fortune’s “Most Admired Company” status third year in a row, much attributed to his vision. e.g- The “Rip, Mix, Burn” campaign started by him.
The National Medal of Technology is the highest honor for technological achievement, "bestowed by the President of the United States on America's leading innovators" . Many say most of Apple’s success is based on three things: He says he shows his employees what is to be done, and how it is to be done efficiently.
Finds it extremely hard to work for anyone else Great marketing strategy. Targeted specific sectors optimally with his products.eg- Gives a ‘HIP’ feel to the products meant for the young gen. Voted the second best man to influence what men buy behind barack obama. He loves whatever he does, rather he does whatever he loves and strives for excellence in the same.
Uses oration as a tool to motivate employees and customers .
Came to India in search of enlightenment when he was not sure what he wanted to do. Always strives to improve his products.
He has his whole life been in love with technology and that is what kept him going.
Was rejected by birth parents as well as the first adaption parents. . We all know how wanted he is today. Opened NeXT and co-founded Pixar in the meanwhile and went on to become the CEO of Apple again. Sometimes life hits you in the head with a brick, DON’T LOSE FAITH. Its an awfully tasting medicine that would be hard to ingest but would cure the disease.
